Driving tactics, eye sighting techniques, in depth intersection theory (46% of all coIlisions occur at intersections), weather hazards, emergency braking procedures, emergency manoeuvres, motorcycles, the effects of drugs and alcohol, basic car maintenance and many other subjects will be addressed throughout the course.
