Satisfactory completion of the course, which means:

  • Attending all  sessions;
  • Completing all course paperwork;
  • Displaying a  positive attitude to road safety.

If you do not manage all these requirements, you  will be considered to have not completed the course in a satisfactory way.

No. Drivers don’t  often get the chance to think about what we like and dislike about driving – or  how other people’s driving affects us.  What’s Driving Us? provides  drivers with the opportunity to address those issues. Through presentations and  discussions drivers will gain an insight into the decisions that people make on  the road.  We don’t judge the way you drive, rather we encourage you to  think about your driving in more detail.
