¬†Driving courses and Training
Get a taste of what makes MasterDrive the premier driver education company in South Africa.
Watch any person who has been driving for more than a year or two and you will probably be able to see several potentially life threatening errors in the way they drive..... But, with all due respect, this of course assumes that the person doing the looking actually knows what they are looking for!
Unfortunately, it is a fact of life: Humans are inherently lazy and more especially so when it comes to repetitive tasks, and driving -- no matter how potentially lethal -- is often seen in this light. People forget or choose to ignore the fact that if, for example, an emergency happened ahead, while they were driving along with only one hand on the steering wheel, their chances of avoiding a crash are significantly reduced.
Why do so many people ignore the risks? Because emergencies of this nature happen just rarely enough for us not to remain alert to the possibility. And this lack of alertness -- this state of lazy attitude and "it won't happen to me" -- are a major factor in the 15000 ( some say 25000) deaths that happen each year on South Africa‚Äôs roads and in the millions of deaths that happen each year on roads all over the world.
An above-average driver avoids making his or her own mistakes. A really good driver is constantly planning ahead and allowing for every conceivable mistake that everyone else on the road might make, too. It is actually quite hard to learn to be a really good driver, and nobody ever achieves that standard through being self-taught, but then how much effort is safeguarding one's own life worth? With that in mind MasterDrive offers a variety of specific driver training programs. While the primary focus is upon the development of passenger vehicle drivers, MasterDrive has also developed programs for¬†corporate fleet drivers, Offensive driving skills, ecodriving , as well as other customised training programs. The MasterDrive driving courses are designed for street , highway and off road drivers, and are taught from a¬†defensive skills¬†perspective in a non-race environment. While there are segments of classroom instruction for the purpose of teaching specific academic subjects, the primary objective is in-car experiential training to increase¬†car control skills, processing, and quality decision-making.
We work with small, medium, and large companies alike to decrease the risk of vehicular liability for a company or agency. Remember...if your employee is driving a vehicle (company or personal) on company business, YOU are probably responsible for what THEY do!
