    Hey all,

    I'm looking to send the woman on an advanced driving course for Christmas. I'm looking for one that focuses more on skill development rather than talking about behaviour/attitude/etc :roll:. I've seen a mob called Bates Advanced Driving which offers defensive driving and skidpan car control courses out at the Sutton Road centre, looks good on paper. Does anyone have any experiences with this mob, or a similar one up in Sydney?

    Thanks all!

    I've heard good things about Bates, I'd give him a go.

    Master Bates? :laugh:
    Let me know how it goes, I want to punt my fiance off to one of these (actually, I am considering an advanced course for myself too, want to finish the tyres off on the Volvo!).

    Regards, Andrew.
