Defensive Driving Training

 TATI has been a leading defensive driving training provider in Oman since 1999.

Not only does TATI have the largest team of defensive driving instructors in the region, together with exemplary training infrastructure, the institute has also earned a reputation for high quality and professionalism. It moved in 2017 to a customised training facility at Al Khoudh which further enhanced its capabilities and has been the subject of consistent customer satisfaction.
TATI also had the distinction of being the only Defensive Driving Training Provider (DDTP) for Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and its contractors between 2009 and 2022, when the OPAL unified road safety programme was launched. TATI held the PDO contract against stiff competition, and was especially pleasing due to PDO being renowned for its high expectations in the HSE field, and road safety in particular (its biggest exposure).
The institute is also the preferred partner for other blue-chip companies across the Middle East in developing defensive driving initiatives and advanced `safe fleet` strategies.



We at TATI are confident that everyone who comes to us for training will not only leave with a higher level of safety and confidence, but will also enjoy the experience of enhancing one of life’s most rewarding and useful skills. The new skills learned will benefit not just companies, but also the individuals involved, thereby providing benefit to the wider community.


All TATI’s predominantly Omani defensive driving trainers are fully accredited by OPAL, and prior to that an almost 14-year history of accreditation under the UK’s world-renowned RoSPA awarding body. All trainers are subject to regular trainer quality-monitoring (TQM) and are required to comply with tightly drawn key performance indicators (KPIs) in order to ensure they deliver the very best customer experience.



Our pricing will always be competitive because we truly believe in delivering the best value for your investment. We fully understand the potential financial and human cost involved in road traffic incidents. Globally, too, research has concluded that driving for work is one of the most dangerous activities. That is why our training programmes are specially structured to minimise the risk by improving driver awareness and promoting responsible driving.



TATI provides training on all vehicle types in order to meet clients’ needs, including light vehicles, tankers, buses and heavy vehicles. Our programmes cater for driving on blacktop and graded roads, as well as 4WD. The TATI team also has special expertise in the area of Safe Journey Management. Packages can also be designed and customised to the specific demands of your business. This could involve theory workshops complemented by behind-the-wheel training, or other combinations of theory and practical input.
