The Highway Plus Courses


Just got your P's? - Then this course is a must for you!

The Highway Plus Course is an RAC School of Motoring in-house developed course with input from Industry Professionals and former Driving Examiners.

It was designed by our team with new licence holders in mind but would also suit drivers with low confidence in Highway Driving.

Most learner drivers can't wait to get their P-Plates and go off on a weekend adventure with their friends. More often than not however, getting to the planned destination includes several hours of Highway Driving and unfortunately most newly licensed drivers haven't had the exposure or education required to drive safely and confidently on our highways. 

The highway can be a scary and extremely dangerous place for drivers with limited experience. Implementing what you will learn on this course will not only take your driving to the next level but most importantly, it will assist in keeping you out of potentially life threatening situations whilst driving on the highway.

Here's Some of What We'll Cover:

  • Entry and Exit from Highways
  • High Speed Lane Changing and Overtaking
  • Situational Awareness and Traffic Monitoring
  • Optimum Lane Positioning (avoiding blindspots)
  • Defensive Driving Strategies
  • Breakdown Scenarios and What To Do In The Event Of A Collision
  • Highway Signage
  • Trip Planning including Basic Vehicle Maintenance 
  • Fatigue Management Techniques 
  • Route Planning
