Become a better driver with the Toyota Gazoo Racing Driving Academy

 

Whether it’s on the road or in the bush, the Toyota Gazoo Racing Driving Academy wants you to be a better, safer driver.

Toyota South Africa recently opened the new, reimagined TGR Driving Academy (formerly the Toyota Driving Academy) with a number of driving courses available both to customers of Toyota South Africa as well as other road users.

Just passing your driver’s licence or having many years of experience driving does not mean that you are actually a safe driver, and we can all pick up bad habits on the (high)way. And even if you are a good driver, there is still a lot to be gained from brushing up on your skills every now and again, especially from highly trained professional driving instructors.

The TGR Driving Academy offers eight courses including Advanced Defensive Driving, Collision Avoidance, Gravel/Dirt Road Training, Defensive Driving and Traffic Psychology, Advanced 4X4 & Recovery, On-road/Off-road Driving (4x2/4x4), Dynamic Handling and Hijack Prevention.

In a country such as ours, with diverse road surfaces as well as the opportunity to explore the wilderness off-road, each of these courses is very relevant.

“We truly believe that anyone who holds a driver’s licence should, at the very least, attend an Advanced Defensive and Collision Avoidance course as this builds confidence and the skills required to drive on local roads. With SA being one of the most dangerous countries to drive in, safety is our number-one concern – so, we also equip our attendees to best cope with not only the ever-changing road conditions, but also how to adjust one’s mindset to cope with the aggressive nature of fellow road users. I would also advise drivers to do refresher courses at least once a year,” says Managing Director Paul deVos.

 

The only criteria for registration is a valid driver’s licence and a will to learn, and certificates are presented upon completion of each course. The courses are open to everyone and not limited to owners of Toyota or Lexus vehicles, and you can enrol as an individual or a group. The academy has a fleet of cars (Toyota Hilux, Fortuner, Corolla Sedan, Corolla Hatch, Yaris and Supra) that can be used for the courses, but participants can also use their own vehicles for the courses. To ensure the safety of all participants, training is delivered under controlled conditions and by highly qualified instructors.

Under the helm of Managing Director Paul de Vos, the TGR Driving Academy is headquartered in Johannesburg, Gauteng, but its courses are carried out nationwide. The academy also offers the added benefit of being able to carry out tailor-made onsite training throughout Africa. They are currently also involved with training in 12 different countries on the continent.
