With the sheer volume of traffic on todays roadways, basic driving skills alone are simply not enough. While no one can predict whether an accident will happen, being prepared as a driver can reduce your exposure to many of these potential hazards. Learn to be Safe. Drive Defensive. Anticipate potentially dangerous situations in advance. Drive based upon risk. Keep your eyes moving. Look ahead for anything that could cause you as a driver to react. Anticipate the movement of others. The information is there.
Defensive driving is a form of training that goes beyond the basic rules of the road and mechanics of driving. The aim is to reduce the risks associated with driving by anticipating potentially dangerous situations or the mistakes of others.
The "SIPDE" process is a system taught to help drivers drive safely.
"S" Search, Scan. Keep your eyes moving at all times to spot potential problems, danger, and risk.
"I" Identify those hazards. Take notice of things that could cause problems.
"P" Predict which hazards that could potentially come into conflict with you.
"D" Decide in advance on a safe action that will put you in the least amount of danger.
"E" Execute the safe action.
Practice: By far one of the most important parts of the training process. Instructors are introducing new drivers to many Defensive Driving techniques over 10 hours of in-vehicle instruction. Students are challenged in different areas with many scenarios in an effort to ensure that the student is capable of performing the skills taught with little to no intervention as the in-car progresses.
25 hours of classroom theory based upon NTSA traffic safety text.
Approved by the Province of Nova Scotia.
Course Curriculum includes:
Related Videos, Guest Speakers when available, Module Testing.
Students can expect the 10 hours of in-car training to focus in many different areas with many different risk scenerios.
