The courses cover practical on-road driving, with an instructor carefully watching every manoeuvre.
The Defensive driver training course
An advanced driver is a person who drives to avoid accidents in spite of the actions of others or the presence of adverse conditions and who can take corrective measures to avoid an accident simply by searching, identifying, predicting, deciding, and executing their decisions before an incident occurs.
This course includes practical on-road driving, with an instructor carefully watching every maneuver. The Defensive driving course will not only increase your ability to anticipate emergency situations, it will teach you to handle these situations safely.
Defensive driving principles include: vehicle orientation, potential hazards and threats, road hazards and vehicle positioning, road signs and legal actions, correct driving procedures and general on-road safety.
