“DuPont drivers have been attending behind the wheel training sessions undertaken by National Advanced Drivers School every 2 years for many years and the unqualified response by all who attend is that these training sessions are always of high value and driving skills are always enhanced after each refresher training programme. National Advanced Drivers School has always been very responsive to our needs and we look forward to working even closer through an annual driver audit programme in the future.”

"I attended your course based at Teretonga. I am e-mailing you to share an experience I had on the wet open roads of state high one this morning. I was traveling along at 100km/hr on my way to bluff, and saw a telecom power line worker standing on the right side of the road on the grass, from say 100 – 200m away. Before you no it the man proceeded to run out over the road to the other side without looking left! Straight away the defensive driving kicked in and I was only about 80m or say away from him running in to my lane when I hit the brakes. With no ABS I locked up and was sliding straight towards him for a second or so, then began to pulse the brakes and turn to deviate around the side of him. If I had not reacted with the pulsing of the brakes I would have killed this man I am sure of it! Once he had realised the mistake he had made he froze and stood in the middle of my lane! So if I had just remanded locked up, I would of collected him at roughly 80km/hr! I like to thank you for the opportunity of practicing this technique in a controlled environment in wet conditions, because of that practice and realisation of how 5km/hr difference in speed makes, a life was saved today I believe!"

"he course was well organised with a mixture of practical training on the track as well as theory sessions in the classroom. The whole team got a lot out of all the sessions and found the instructors particular knowledgeable and the sessions were even humorous with examples given on the area being covered. The sessions covered all the necessary areas including tyre maintenance, braking, avoiding an accident etc. Many thanks to you and your team for the day – the whole Heatheries team thoroughly enjoyed the day and got a lot out of the course and are now well skilled to deal with any situation."
