Russell White

Russell White’s experience in the Driver Training Industry spans more than 20 years. He is widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading Road Safety advocates and was for many years the General Manager of the highly successful Holden Performance Driving Centre on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

He is now the Managing Director of Driver Safety Australia and creator of the Driveability system, a unique on-line driver training program that is arguably the most comprehensive interactive driver training program available. It is poised to revolutionise the driver training field and will save lives.

Throughout his career, Russell has assisted thousands of people from all over the world to become safe and competent drivers by passing his skills and knowledge on ‘The Art of Technically Better Driving’. He is a regular media commentator on road safety issues and contributes written articles for several leading publications.

He has been at the forefront of some of the most recent research into driver training and established a joint research program with Griffith University on the Gold Coast. This PHD study focused on the biomechanics of the driver and how these impact on the driver’s performance and was a world first in this field. Currently, Russell is continuing with his academic studies and completing a Graduate Certificate in Road Safety with CARRS-Q.

Governments at both State and Federal levels have sought Russell’s views on Road Safety issues. He has presented papers at hearings for the Queensland Travel Safe Committee and the Transport and Regional Policy Committee at Parliament House in Canberra.

He has designed and delivered various Training and Vehicle Release programs for vehicle manufacturers such as Holden and BMW. He was also the manager for the Mercedes-Benz National Driver Training Program. This ambitious program was unique and the first national program ever to be undertaken by a vehicle manufacturer.

He has contributed articles for motoring publications such as “The Road Ahead” and “Business Fleet Monthly” and the “Gold Coast Bulletin”.

In addition he has a weekly road safety segment on Radio 4BC, presents motoring reviews for NBN Television’s The Good Life and has appeared on a number of other television programs including A Current Affair, Getaway, Brisbane Extra, Today Tonight, The Project, Sunrise, The Today Show and The Great South East.
