SCDS’s full course is designed for newly licensed drivers to gain the skills necessary to become lifelong defensive drivers. The course stressed the benefits of developing habits early in the driving education to prepare students to be proactive in their driving. The student will examine the basics of driving but also behavioural aspects of driving. The importance of recognizing a hazard, understanding how to defend against the hazard, and acting in time will be stressed. We will study road rage, alcohol/drugs, and distracted driving. All things that reduce an individual’s ability to be a defensive driver. The course is a valuable tool for your newly licensed driver to ensure their safety.
