What is DriveAbout?

DriveAbout is a road safety EdTech solution that addresses the global challenges presented by the Fatal Five - speeding, intoxication from drugs or alcohol, failure to wear a seatbelt, fatigue, and distraction/inattention.

The content and technology that underpin DriveAbout is world leading and based on the premise that every road user has the right to travel safely.

What road safety content is in DriveAbout?

DriveAbout has taken road rules and road safety content and distilled into 20 hours of competency-based educational training delivered using a learning management system that blends adult learning principles and high quality animation.
DriveAbout’s animated educational content covers all topics in the road rule book and is modularised into five sections, with new content being made available as demand grows

Mobile accessible road rules and road safety

Although DriveAbout is built around a core body of content, it can be customised and made available on different platforms. The platforms through which it is already delivered include apps, digitised e-books, and web-based training. In future, the content will be made available through onsite monitors, such as at motor vehicle registration counters, airports, and inflight entertainment systems.
