Does the Teenage Defensive Driver Training Course take hours off my logbook?
Unfortunately the RMS doesn’t recognise the Defensive Driver Training Course as part of it’s ‘Safe Driver Program’. Unlike the ‘Safe Driver Program’ offered by the RMS, MDTC is a private road with a skid pan. We do practical activities of car control and what to do in emergency situation including skid control. You have a go at the emergency exercises that you would only get to experience in an emergency situation. Our question to you is….. What do you want out of a Defensive Course, hours off your logbook or information on how you may save your life in an emergency situation out on the public road?
