METEC offers a selection of defensive driving courses conducted at our Melbourne facility by our fully qualified driver training experts.

The METEC defensive driving courses on offer are: 

L    ROAD TO SOLO – for logbook learner drivers with 20+ driving hours
PP  DRIVING SOLO  – for Probationary drivers


Defensive driving courses are an excellent way to assist new learners in obtaining practical skills that will help keep them safe.  

This course is designed for learner student drivers who have completed more than 20+ hours of practice in their logbook.  It is designed to help learner drivers understand how to drive in a low risk manner.  We educate learners in essential techniques such as looking ahead, scanning the road/traffic and expecting the unexpected. This course is to review progress, road rules and set goals for future safe driving.

The majority of the course is done out on public roads around the Yarra Valley.  We point out that defensive driving 1 is not a driving lesson, but a further opportunity for learner drivers to get a longer drive on a range of roads with the instruction of an experienced METEC road instructor.

This course includes:

  • Introduction to the course
  • Off-road assessment of the learner driver’s skills
  • Braking, parking and handbrake starts at the METEC facility
  • Classroom sessions and video presentations
  • Revision of road rules
  • Driving in traffic and defensive driving skills
  • Practical country driving on rural highways
  • Assessment of the student’s progress 


This defensive driving course is designed for Probationary Drivers.

It provides safe driving practice and is a great course for young drivers to do in their own car.

'Driving Solo' provides further opportunity for young drivers to understand what they need to do to keep themselves and others safe on the roads. As the course is carried out in the driver’s own vehicle, it enables the new driver to understand what they can do safely and importantly what they cannot do.


This course is currently under review and will be relaunched shortly.
