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 to hazards, reducing the chance of an accident.

“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. 

Course Aim

In the year ending June 2018, the Department of Transport reported:
  • 1,770 reported road deaths
  • 26,610 people killed or seriously injured
  • 165,100 casualties of all severities

In this short and engaging online course, driver safety expert Vicky Lovell takes you on a commentary drive and highlights defensive driving advice based on C.O.A.S.T. (Concentration, Observation, Anticipation, Space and Time) to develop your defensive driving mindset and help make every journey safer for you and other road users.
