Keep Kids Alive SA (One Day course)

Right, now they have their K-53 driver's licence and now they have all the driving experience in the world. Wrong.
A Defensive Driving skills programme geared for young drivers because once they have a drivers licence there is only one person that knows more than an 18 year old driver and that's a 17 year old driver. Parents with numerous years of driving experience suddenly know far less about driving than a youngster with less than 6 months driving experience.

The K-53 driving system teaches a driver to move a vehicle on the roadway, it does not teach drivers how to avoid collisions. The system teaches you what you may and may not do, the additional methods that are required to identify and best avoid collisions are not taught and this sometimes comes with experience often with the pain, expenses and suffering.

We teach young driver's the reality of driving, youngsters are often more prepared to listen to an independent person as they believe their parents don't know enough to teach them anything. We will change that concept. This also applies to the riding of "scooters" and motorcycles as the methods related to a driving style as apposed to what you drive.

This course is done after they obtain their K-53 drivers licence, we are not in the business of teaching learner drivers to obtain a drivers licence, we do post K-53 driver training.

Your children will have the greatest chance of avoiding collisions after attending this course, which is often with the parent's vehicle, provided they apply the methods. We all too often learn by our mistakes but many times the mistakes of collisions don't allow us to ever learn from it again. Don't let this happen with your children. We aim to let your children learn from others mistakes before making it themselves. They will get an understanding how their lives can be altered when charged with various road traffic offences and/or culpable homicide charges if a pedestrian or passenger is killed due to their irresponsible driving habits.

This course is done on a similar basis to the Defensive and Economical Driver Development Course. Group bookings are done especially during school holidays and can be offered at any location or our training venue.

This is a small price to pay to ensure your young child safety while behind the wheel or as a passenger.

Pre-Employment Driver Evaluations (40 min evaluation)

Is that licence genuine, maybe yes but did they obtain it legally?
As an independent and impartial party, we check to see whether driver's employed can actually drive a vehicle. With statistics indicating that as much as 56% of drivers have fraudulently obtained drivers licences, many drivers seeking employment whereby they are require to drive company vehicles and trucks, have never done a learners driver test, an eye test or passed out on a driving licence test. We see this all too often in the media.

The Pre-Employment Driver Evaluations ensures that the person seeking employment can actually drive a vehicle to the required standard before being employment. Many companies employ drivers merely on presentation of a drivers licence only to later find that they actually cannot drive a vehicle or result in having serious collisions very soon after employment which often results in insurance companies not paying out. Once the company discovers this after the fact, they have great difficulty in trying to terminate the "drivers" employment without major legal problems.

We make sure they can drive your vehicles safely and submit reports on any suspicions of fraudulent driver's licences. This is never challenged.   

This is based on the standard K-53 methods. We assess drivers to be employed which have a valid drivers licence, whether they have the skills to drive a vehicle of the required class safely and effectively.

The Assessment takes approximately 30 - 40 minutes and can be done at your company premises in your company vehicle or the individual's private roadworthy vehicle. This is best done in the final group on short listing potential employees.

The results are given almost immediately and no biased decisions are made as we remain independent from the company and merely give an accurate report.

The cost is far less than possible collision and damage costs after establishing the driver does not have the capabilities to drive your vehicles.

Anti-Hijacking Countermeasures  (Half Day course)

Unfortunately, this is a reality especially in South Africa but also if traveling abroad, even as a passenger.

We offer practical training sessions on Anti-Hijacking Countermeasures, this is done on a Passive or Active Response and driver makes the decision equipped with better knowledge on how to most effectively deal with a given situations.
The Passive methods train drivers to respond in a manner whereby they do not antagonize the attackers or lead them to believe they are trying to react in some manner.
The Active method normally starts off with a passive approach but at the appropriate moment and time the driver has the skills in defensive tactics in order to actively disarm, neutralize and/or launch a counter attack on the perpetrator/s.
We are fully aware that some persons do not wish to engage in any form of physical manner with an attacker and here they have the option to make an informed decision of their choice. Many persons in a hi-jacking or other attack situation responds inappropriately which places themselves and others in far more danger due to the fact that they have not acquired the actual skills to engage in a confrontation and the methods used are ineffective and do not achieve the desired result to ensure their safety or escape.

We also offer full Self Defence courses, Armed and Unarmed if required.

This course includes a Hi-Jacking Prevention Seminar (3 hrs) and Practical Anti-Hijacking Procedures (2 hrs).
It would be beneficial to have completed the Defensive Driving course prior to the Anti-Hijacking course.
