Staying Safe Driving Refresher Course


Staying Safe is classroom-based and uses information and material provided by Waka Kotahi (New Zealand Transport Agency). These four-hour refresher courses involve a power point presentation and a lot of class interaction. Courses are friendly and a non-critical look at present driving regulations and helpful tips on better driving habits.

The course covers four themes:

  • Keeping safe: thinking about your driving safety
  • Being safe: driving skills
  • Safe journeys: managing road situations
  • Keep moving safely: safe alternatives to driving

Matters discussed include, keeping ourselves safe on the road and thinking about the routes we travel in our daily lives to get safely to our destinations, thinking of all the scenarios we may encounter. Making sure we do everything possible to prevent accidents caused by distractions and that help us to feel in control of our driving. It also covers knowing what is expected of us and feeling confident when we get behind the wheel.
