Lakeside Raceway Defensive Driving Course

Keeping our P-platers safer!

"I'm just emailing to say that I went on a defensive driving course on Sunday at Kawana. He was an outstanding instructor and a really friendly guy, he made the course very informative and enjoyable and I've recommended the course to my mates because of how good he was. Just thought I'd show my appreciation."
