DRIVE AWARE has been developed by The Formula Company with the support of Volvo and is based on currentlocal and international driver safety research. The course is suitable for all licence holders and covers driver attitude, decision-making and risk management as well as safe driving skills and techniques.

DRIVE AWARE IS NOT A HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING COURSE. This course is designed to teach students how to proactively recognise and avoid potentially unsafe situations as well as how to react in case of an emergency.

Participants will complete practical driving exercises on a purpose built wet and dry handling arena to demonstrate the appropriate techniques, attitude and decision-making skills that make a more aware, alert and prepared driver.

The course runs over a half day with high instructor to student ratios and is suitable for L and P Plate drivers. We also welcome parents to attend the day with their child in order to improve their own driving safety and coaching skills free of charge.

A safe driver is an aware driver, who is well prepared with the right attitude and decision making skills.

If you don’t have a car or would prefer to use one of ours, you are welcome to hire a Volvo from our fleet for your course.
