Course Overview

Defensive drivers are always "looking for trouble". Not because they want to cause it, but so they can "defend" themselves against other drivers, and the trouble they can cause.

Driving is risky business, and no matter how careful drivers are, they have no control over other people on the road. Whether they're speeding, tailgating, or just not paying attention to what they're doing, other drivers can make the roads more hazardous. But they're not the only problem.

Most road accidents happen after sundown, when darkness makes it harder to see. And rain, snow and ice can send drivers out of control. As if that weren't enough, sometimes there are problems with the vehicle itself.

When employees are equipped with the knowledge that they need to defend themselves on the road, they can reduce or eliminate these risks… and make the roads a safer place for everyone.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • The "basics" of driving defensively
  • The road hazards that are commonly encountered while driving
  • Driving safely when sharing the road with trucks and buses
  • How to avoid distracted driving and "road rage"
  • Setting up a safe following distance
  • Preparing a vehicle for driving in bad weather
  • Techniques that can be used to drive safely under challenging conditions
  • …and more.
