What Is Defensive Driving Fundamentals and Attitudes?

When operating a motor vehicle, defensive driving refers to the practice of predicting dangers despite unfavorable road conditions or other drivers’ errors. This course teaches drivers to understand and self-manage these forces to maintain clear and objective decision-making skills while driving and avoid impulsive, disrespectful, retaliatory or other actions that increase driving risk or attract complaints.

This online training focuses on Driver Attitude by educating employees on the personal factors that influence risk tolerance. As drivers understand their own psychology and “hot buttons” then learn how to self-manage emotion, they are able reduce risk tolerance even in stressful driving situations or when provoked by other drivers. This results in reduced incident rates (up to 90% reduction) as proven by many Thinking Driver course users*.
