Our Driver Training Courses

EA991 Driving Academy Driver Training Courses are designed to facilitate and assist Learners to not only become proficient and confident drivers through the transfer of knowledge via the instructors and course material, but also to adapt their attitudinal behaviour to become safety conscious road users.

The programmes begin in the classroom with theory lessons; and thereafter practical lessons are conducted at their well laid out training grounds.

Apart from theory and practical tuition received through the Academy, Learners will also need to complete assignments, self-learning, view prescribed videos and other materials, as prescribed by the Instructor. These form part of the Course Hours that need to be completed, before assessment takes place, and to obtain their Certificate of Competence.
