About The Driving Centre
Welcome to The Driving Centre - an $8 million facility designed to help drivers really drive.
This is one of the Region's premier performance driving centres, equipped with facilities regarded as being second to none, including:
- A full 2km training circuit (Click Here to see circuit map)
- Skid pan
- Comprehensive fleet of the latest Holden models to train with - plus
- An off-road, four wheel drive training course, conference room and onsite catering
- One of the only mechanical 'TurnTables' in the Southern Hemisphere (which is used to simulate oversteer)
While it provides an ideal and safe environment for guests to develop their driving ability, it can offer so much more than just Driver Training. Part of the centre's unique appeal is the opportunity for guests to strap themselves in for 4 exhilarating Hot Laps in a V8 SS Commodore. With the addition of the V8 Super School, there's even the ability to get behind the wheel themselves.
For Touring car enthusiasts - or simply the curious - guests can also get a behind-the-scenes look at the high-octane world of V8 Supercars with packages including a visit to the “Supercheap Auto Racing V8 Supercar Team”...
At the heart of the centre
The Driving Centre is committed to improving the safety of everyone on the road, so a range of Driver Training Programs has been developed to fit both individual and corporate needs.
Good technique is a prerequisite for success in almost any activity - sport, music, art etc. Driving a vehicle is no different and the starting point for improved road safety is for drivers to learn the best driving technique. However, good technique has to be used in conjunction with a complete knowledge of the road rules and the adoption of a socially acceptable attitude.
Ordinarily, receiving a driver's licence only brings with it the knowledge of road rules and the basics of moving a car from A to B. It's the bare minimum of what is required for safe driving. The majority of drivers have little knowledge of the dynamic forces that act upon a motor vehicle when a crisis arises.
The general public and corporations are becoming more aware of the need for drivers to be equipped with effective driving techniques. Today, we all take to the wheel in an extremely volatile environment - one that can be extremely challenging and dangerous if experience and good driving technique is lacking.
Several multi-national companies have joined with The Driving Centre to provide the highest level of corporate support for a facility of this kind. These companies include Holden as the Centre's major sponsor and vehicle provider.
The Driving Centre offers all this and much more. This unique facility provides every visitor with a truly memorable motoring experience. Above all, it remains 'The' place for those looking to master the art of technically better driving.
Catering to all needs
Nestled in picturesque sugar cane fields at Norwell midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the convention event facilities are first class. Conference, convention and incentives organisers are well catered for with a number of corporate packages, which can be tailored to suit every occasion.
