The AA Defensive Driving Course will make you a smarter driver – it gives you the confidence and knowledge to be safer when you’re driving.

 

You'll learn defensive driving skills including:

 

  • Searching and eye scanning while you drive
  • Assessing and identifying hazard
  • Reducing risk - watching out for the factors which cause the most crashes

 

A defensive driving course cuts 6 months off the time you’ll have to hold a restricted licence.

 

If you currently hold a learner licence you can attend the course after you've held your learners licence for at least 4 months or have at least 50 hours driving experience.

 

If you currently hold a restricted licence you can attend the course as soon as you obtain your restricted licence.

 

if you're over 25 this course will reduce the time on your restricted licence from 6 months to 3 months.
