Safe and Considerate Driving (Online)


Safe and Considerate Driving is a course designed for clients being referred for reasons including offences relating to driving without due care and attention. Clients are referred to Safe and Considerate Driving if they are involved in a collision. The course increases clients’ awareness and understanding of:

  • the causes and negative consequences of risky and inconsiderate driving;
  • the importance of concentration, observation, anticipation and allowing adequate space and time;
  • the reasons why their own driving may be unsafe or inconsiderate.

The course is delivered in 2 parts:

Part 1:  Consists of a 2.5 hr digital interactive course. To take part, you will need to book and pay for your course online and have access to:

A tablet, laptop or desktop with microphone and camera with reliable internet connection capable of streaming video. Smart phones may be used; however, the course will be far more effective if you have a larger screen.
