Young Drivers (u18 and L Plates)

Defensive driver training is very valuable to young drivers as it allows these drivers to experience a few things that may just make them safer on the road.

Conditions that apply to young and L plate drivers

To keep things safe – Driver Skills International has implemented the following conditons for young drivers:

Any driver under the age of 18 must be accompanied with a parent or guardian.

Any Learner driver must be accompanied by a fully licenced driver. This driver must also pay for the course and therefor can participate. Two drivers can share one vehicle.


Will a DSA course damage my car?

Simple answer is no it shouldn’t. All driving done in our courses is similar to what you would experience during your every day driving. The roads are wet to avoid tyre damage and the chosen areas are free of obstacles and hazards.

What about Insurance?

DSA have relevant Public Liability insurance policies for all services provided. It is however your responsibility and duty of care to look after yourself and alert a DSA staff member of any thing you believe is unsafe.

Please check with your insurance company about attending these courses but do note that in over 10 years, there has never been no major accidents or crashes at a DSA course leading to a claim. This is after all – a road safety company and we put safety first at all times.
