What makes CRUDE different from other Driving Schools?
CRUDE Ultimate Driving Education’s main focus is creating a world of advanced drivers. This means that all drivers are educated and trained in a way that no other driving school would dare to venture. Other Driving Schools will not take students through basic maintenance requirements or teach them how to change a tyre, nor will they teach a student about loss of traction and emergency braking.
What areas do you cover?
Area’s are dependant on the Educator. Currently CRUDE has two Educator’s that service the surrounding suburbs of Carlton and Bundoora VicRoads, in Victoria, Australia.
