Being a safe and responsible driver takes a combination of knowledge, skill and attitude. It is important to be able to see dangerous situations before they happen and to respond quickly and effectively to prevent them.

In then Defensive Driving Course, we focus on how to avoid collisions.

Defensive driving is based on three ideas:  visibility, space and communication.

Visibility is about seeing and being seen.  You should always be aware of traffic in front, behind and beside you. 

Managing the space around your vehicle lets you see and be seen and gives you time and space to avoid a collision.

Communicating with other road users to make sure they see you and know what you are doing.
