Here are 5 key points for safer driving:

  • Watch your speed – remember streetlights mean 30mph unless otherwise signed
  • Keep your distance – only a fool breaks the 2 second rule
  • Be alert – concentrate and look for hazards and other road users
  • THINK before you act.  Is it safe?  Mirrors – Signal – Manoeuvre
  • Check your vehicle regularly – brakes, tyres, lights, wipers & washers

If you have been offered a driving course by the Police, please select the Driving Offenders Courses page for links to the Speed Awareness Course, the Driver Alertness Course, the Driving 4 Change Course, the National RiDE Course, or the What's Driving Us? Course.
