What is the Risk 1 course?
As the name suggests, Risk 1 covers risks in traffic, in particular the risks stemming from your own actions as a driver.
Both Risk components exist as part of the Government incentive ‘Zero Vision’. Zero Vision was launched in 1997 and aims to eliminate traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries. The project puts a lot of pressure on traffic infrastructure, traffic laws and, above all, individual drivers.
Risk 1 is the theoretical component of the education and is compulsory for all drivers. The course covers the risks of alcohol, drugs, fatigue and other scenarios that can impair your driving skills.
Risk 1 for motorcycle license!
Motorcycle drivers must also complete a Risk Education in order to get their license. This course is separate to the Car Risk Education. This means that you will have to take the Motorcycle Risk Education even if you have previously completed the Car Risk Education. The risk of accidents for motorcycle drivers is considerably higher than those driving a car and, therefore, the education is different to reflect that.
