Every company is different with different needs, that’s why we’re flexible. We listen to what your business requires and provide online driver safety training that supports that.

We have three key specialty areas within our team: driver safety, training, systems and support.
Our expertise and commitment in these areas, enables us to provide Australasia’s sharpest online driver safety training.
Rhys Sullivan heads up the Driver Safety function of SharpDrive. We’re very fortunate to have someone of Rhys’s calibre on our team!
Rhys has been involved in driver safety for more than 20 years and has extensive experience as a driving instructor in both New Zealand and Australia – having trained more than 20,000 drivers!
His entrance into driver training started in 2001 where he was trained in Germany and certified to the International BMW Standard. He was responsible for the design and implementation of driver training programmes for BMW across Australia.
An expert in the practical training sphere, Rhys joined SharpDrive when he saw its value as a leader in the online training space. While practical training will always have a place, online training is at the forefront for ease and accessibility. Rhys describes SharpDrive as a solution that is not about learning to drive, but instead a course designed to make drivers more aware and improve people’s attitudes to driving.
When working with the team on the content for each module, Rhys is able to put himself in the driver’s seat. He makes sure our training modules include the driver attitude, driver behaviour and driver wellbeing content, as well as bringing his knowledge to target common driving issues such as Braking and Cornering, Emergency Lane Changes, Hazard Perception and Awareness, ABS Brake and Avoidance, Understeer/Oversteer Correction, and Seating and Steering.
Rhys’s ultimate priority is to save lives on our roads!
Given SharpDrive is a training solution, making sure the content we produce ticks all the right boxes for effective and engaging training is critical.
