Defensive Driving Course Online Defensive driving is the adoption of a proactive mindset – one in which hazards are anticipated rather than simply reacted to.  This mindset provides Defensive Drivers with more time to respond.

“Suddenly” and “out of nowhere” are two phrases commonly used on car insurance claim forms – or while being interviewed under police caution – following a road accident.  These phrases are a key indicator that the driver has not effectively anticipated the road ahead.  
In this short and engaging online course, driver safety expert Vicky Lovell takes you on a commentary drive and highlights tips based on C.O.A.S.T. (Concentration, Observation, Anticipation, Space and Time) to help make every journey safer for you and other road users.
