Welcome to JDT Advanced Driving Systems - Passenger Van Training. 

JDT provides training for all types of 15-seater passenger vans or buses and for-hire passenger carriers utilizing the 15-seater passenger van/bus. Due to the increased risks in this type of transportation, it is essential that drivers are properly trained to operate these vehicles safely and that drivers are provided with experience essential to safely operate the vehicles with passengers on board.

JDT’s training includes the correct pre-trip procedures, rules, safety for embarking and disembarking of passengers, passenger safety, dealing with emergency situations, safety measures, and on-the-road training. Each driver is trained one-on-one in driver awareness, vehicle safety operations, capability, and defensive driving for these types of vehicles.


Who We Are

Our Early Beginnings

In 1952 the foundations of the methodologies used today in JDT Advanced Driving Systems (R.O.A.D.S.©) were started by Dan Smit, original owner of a driver training school in South Africa. From his early beginnings as a firefighter, police officer and driver trainer for emergency vehicles, Dan's passion for driver safety Advanced Driver Training Companyled him to open the first professional driver training school of its kind in the country. His legacy continued with his daughter Melody, who brought these concepts to the US in 2006 with Just Driver Training.

We strongly believe in practical behind the wheel training. Individuals perceive the driving environment differently and base their decisions on education, experience and perception. At JDT ADVANCED DRIVING SYSTEMS, we focus on experiential learning with positive reinforcement which takes experienced drivers to the next level of driver awareness and safety. Research has shown that individuals in stressful situations tend to fall back on training, rather than rising to the occasion. Training is everything and prepares the individual at both a conscious and subconscious level for driving in the 21st century. Driving is about the skill of the driver and not just about the type of vehicle used.
