Defensive Driving is an advanced driving technique. This trains drivers to utilise higher levels of observation and anticipation skills to reduce the risk of collisions and incidents. Through training, drivers can learn how to identify risks and control road situations to reduce the likelihood of being involved in an incident. 

Our Defensive Driver Training Courses will upskill your employees’ driving skills, and help them to stay safe on the road. The training will focus on improving their control of the vehicle, increase awareness and anticipation, and help to create a ‘safety bubble’ around their vehicle. 

There are many different benefits of defensive driver training, including increased driver safety. This training also helps to improve fuel-efficiency and promotes a style of driving which puts less strain on your vehicles. All of this can help to save your business both time and money.
