ADDA would like to thank you for your support over the last 20 years. We would like to think that we have contributed to the safety of thousands of road users over this period. We wish all previous clients well in their driving careers.

Why do our Defensive Driving Course?

The Defensive Driving Course (DDC) has been improving the standard of drivers for 50 years. Restricted Licence holders are constrained as they are legally not permitted to carry younger siblings to school, drive between 10pm & 5am and are unable to transport friends & family to school and sports events.

Breaching these conditions nullifies insurance and risks fines and demerits making the cost of a defensive driving course seem minimal. Your certificate of completion slashes up to 6 months off 1R time.
