Defensive Driving Course Online Defensive driving is the adoption of a proactive mindset – one in which hazards are anticipated rather than reacted to.  This approach gives the driver time to safely respond to hazards for both their and other road users benefit.

“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.
In this short and engaging online course, driver safety expert Vicky Lovell describes techniques and 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.

COURSE OBJECTIVESTo reduce the risk of accident, serious injury and death while driving by:
