About our Defensive Driving course

While the actual online defensive driving curriculum of the course will vary depending on the state you reside in; you'll still cover the basic fundamentals that traffic school typically includes.

You'll spend time learning about traffic crashes and the statistics behind them so you can understand the real magnitude of the problem we face. You'll also dive into the mental factors of good driving, including the importance of a clear state of mind before getting behind the wheel. Going off of that, you'll then learn more about accident prevention and the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

Additionally, your course will go over what happens if you're involved in a car accident and how to avoid accidents in the first place. Avoiding distracted driving and obeying all area traffic laws are two of the most important aspects of this.

What does Defensive Driving mean?

The term 'defensive driving' was coined back in the 1960s by the National Safety Council to describe a set of common-sense driving tactics that can reduce the risk of car crashes by anticipating dangerous scenarios before they arise.

While the Safety Council created the first course on the topic, there are now many different courses available on the matter.

Skills you'll learn

As a driver, you're not only looking out for yourself. You also have to consider the actions and behaviors of all other drivers on the road. Learning the skills supported by the National Safety Council is the best way to anticipate driving emergencies you may encounter.

These skills include:

  • Scanning the road around you and ahead of you
  • Planning for worst-case scenario emergencies
  • Determining an escape route if necessary
  • Respecting other drivers and treating them as you'd like to be treated

Not only for traffic tickets
