The Jump Start course
Does the thought of teaching someone how to drive make you feel anxious?
Have you tried a few lessons only to have it end in tears or a screaming match?
Teaching new drivers can be a stressful time for all involved; testing the most solid relationships. We find many parents prefer to have a professional instructor do all of the teaching & practice (too scary or too many arguments!) OR to do all of the teaching and practice themselves (too expensive!). We've always recommended a joint effort between parents/supervisors and a professional driving instructor to give the learner driver the best preparation possible for their driving future.
JUMP START is an investment in a safe driving future
We have developed the JUMP START course to help learners & their supervisors achieve the 120 practice hours necessary to pass the new Restricted Licence test (in effect Feb 2012). The course is made up of both theory & practical elements and will provide the tools to:
- give parents/supervisors the confidence to take practice sessions
- prevent arguments, tears & door slamming
- keep the costs of instruction to a minimum
- get the learner up-skilled and competent faster
The Jump Start course includes:
1 hr Theory session for the learner driver & their supervisor covering lesson structure, tips & tricks, pit falls to avoid and generally preparing both learner & supervisor for the road ahead.
1 hr Practical ‘on road’ sessions for the learner driver & their supervisor looking at basic car control, stopping & starting safely, gear changing and assessing current ability to set a plan forward from here.
If the learner has already had some practice or experience the instructor will cover more advanced topics based on their needs & skill level. Its important that the supervisor attends both sessions with the learner driver. We schedule the theory sessions at varied times including afternoon & evening to fit in with different lifestyles. Following this, the practical session time is booked for a suitable time. This is conducted in our car or your car. Further lessons can be arranged as required at our discounted package rates.
The course costs $95 per learner driver—the supervisor(s) attend for free (if both parents will be involved in the practice session then both are welcome to attend)
