The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE -

PRO­GRES­SIVE Driv­ing Tech­niques (PDT) will present an in­ten­sive anti-hi­jack­ing course in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg on May 16.

Aimed specif­i­cally to pro­mote the safety of women driv­ers in large sport util­ity or high-pow­ered Ger­man ve­hi­cles, the course costs R2 500 per per­son and ap­plies lessons learnt from analysing ve­hi­cle hi­jack­ings in South Africa.

Ad­vanced high-speed tac­ti­cal driv­ing in­struc­tors will also train the driv­ers to recog­nise safe brak­ing dis­tances and ex­e­cute emer­gency lane changes in their own ve­hi­cles. The course is four hours long, with two ses­sions pre­sented for 20 peo­ple at a time at the Roy Hes­keth track in Hay­fields, Pi­eter­mar­itzburg.

The first ses­sion starts at 8.15 am and the sec­ond group starts at 3.15 pm.

PDT mem­bers are all pro­fes­sional driver train­ers reg­is­tered with the Safety and Se­cu­rity Sec­tor Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing Author­ity (Sas­seta), and their cour­ses are used by po­lice and public­sec­tor driv­ers.

Cer­tifi­cate can be sent on com­ple­tion of course, which may be used for dis­counted pre­mi­ums at se­lect in­sur­ance com­pa­nies. • Please note that only 40 peo­ple can be ac­com­mo­dated and book­ing is es­sen­tial. Con­tact Michelle at 072 237 6257.
