Advanced Driving Lessons For P Plate Drivers on the Gold Coast

Easy Start Driving School is dedicated to Advanced Driving Lessons For P Plate Drivers, guiding P Plate Drivers through their post-licensing journey with expertly designed Driving Lessons tailored to the unique challenges of driving on the Gold Coast.

Our certified Driving Instructors are committed to fostering your growth, focusing on Advanced Driving techniques, safety, and independence, ensuring you drive with confidence and competence.

Advanced Driving Techniques for P Plate Drivers

Once the provisional (P Plate) license is acquired, the real journey toward becoming a seasoned driver begins.

We support P Plate Drivers to be safe and responsible on the Gold Coast roads.

This period is crucial for reinforcing and expanding upon the foundational Driving Skills learned as a Learner Driver.

Easy Start Driving School on the Gold Coast tailors advanced driving lessons specifically for P Plate Drivers, focusing on critical areas such as Defensive Driving, hazard perception, and emergency handling.

Our Advanced and Defensive Driving Courses include anticipating the actions of other road users and environmental conditions, maintaining safe following distances, and understanding the best practices for avoiding collisions.

Our Driving Instructors provide real-life scenarios and simulations that teach P Plate Drivers how to remain vigilant and proactive on the road.

Developing a keen eye for potential hazards—such as unpredictable pedestrians, cyclists, and sudden traffic changes—is paramount.

We employ interactive tools and on-road experiences to enhance hazard perception skills, teaching drivers to anticipate and react appropriately to various road situations.

Knowing how to perceive and react in an emergency, whether it’s executing a safe emergency stop or handling vehicle malfunctions, can be life-saving.

Our Driving Lessons cover these techniques in depth, using both theoretical and practical training methods to ensure drivers are well-prepared for any situation.

Overcoming Common P Plate Challenges

The transition to a P Plate license brings new freedoms but also new challenges.

We support P Plate Drivers to improve their driving skills and attitudes to awareness and safety.

Easy Start Driving School’s curriculum is designed to address these common hurdles, equipping new drivers with the skills and confidence to overcome them.

The initial experience of driving solo without an Driving Instructor or supervisor for the first time can be daunting.

Our Driving Lessons focus on building confidence through gradual exposure to various driving conditions, ensuring P Plate Drivers feel secure and self-assured behind the wheel.

Night Driving and managing distractions can be significant challenges for new drivers. Our night driving lessons emphasise the importance of visibility, speed adjustment, and heightened awareness.

Additionally, we offer strategies for managing distractions, emphasising the critical nature of focusing on the road and surroundings.

As P Plate Drivers may encounter different vehicles (from family cars to rentals), and road conditions that can change very quickly, our lessons include tips for quickly adapting to different car sizes, controls, and performances.

We also cover driving in varied weather conditions, teaching skills for rain, fog, and even beachside driving peculiar to the Gold Coast.

What P Plate Drivers Need To Know About The Law

Understanding and adhering to the specific laws and restrictions for P Plate Drivers is not just a legal requirement but a cornerstone of safe and responsible driving.

Easy Start Driving School emphasises this aspect by integrating legal education into our Driving Lessons.

We cover the specific speed limits applicable to P Plate Drivers, explaining the rationale behind these restrictions and the importance of compliance for safety and legal reasons.

Understanding the rules around passenger limits and how and why they apply in different situations is crucial. Our lessons detail these regulations, helping drivers make informed decisions about carrying passengers.

With a zero-tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol in many jurisdictions for P Plate Drivers, we stress the importance of sober driving, discussing the implications of DUI offences and how to enjoy social outings safely and responsibly.

Driving at Night, on the Highways and varying Weather Conditions

The Gold Coast’s diverse driving conditions and quickly changing weather call for an advanced well-rounded skill set.

Easy Start Driving School prepares P Plate Drivers for all eventualities, ensuring they’re competent, no matter the conditions.

The Gold Coast’s weather is variable and changes quickly, from sudden downpours to the glaring sun, we provide practical advice and hands-on experience for handling various weather conditions, focusing on adjustments in driving style, vehicle maintenance tips for weather preparedness, and emergency procedures.

Our night Driving Lessons go beyond basic visibility, covering the nuances of headlight use, dealing with the glare from oncoming traffic, and recognising the increased risks associated with nighttime driving.

Given the higher speeds and unique challenges of highway driving, our Driving Lessons cover merging, lane discipline, overtaking, and understanding highway signage, preparing P Plate Drivers for long-distance and high-speed travel with confidence.

Advanced Driving Lessons
For P Plate Drivers

When a new Learner Driver passes their driving test and gets their P Plates they are statistically at the highest risk of injury or death compared to any time in their life. 

The first 6 to 12 months are the most dangerous, with the key age group being the 17 to 25 age group.

• In 2023 over 1,200 people were killed on Australian roads.

• About 100 people in Queensland died as a result of P Platers of their passengers. And over 2,000 were hospitalised in Queensland alone.

• The main causes were speeding, lack of car control, and unsafe behaviour.

• A P Plate driver is 30 times more likely to be involved in an accident and 3 more likely to be seriously injured or killed as a result.

Getting your P Plates is just the beginning. To be a safe and responsible road driver and reduce the risk of injury or death a new driver must keep learning and develop their skills.

This is where Easy Start Driving School is committed to making a real difference for young drivers and their families.

Easy Start Driving School has developed a range of Advanced Driving techniques specially designed to aid new drivers, teaching them awareness and practical skills such as advanced car control, driving in a range of varied weather conditions, driving at night and being prepared for the unexpected.
