DEFENSIVE SKILLS DAY

Develop potentially life-saving skills during this fun, memorable 3-hour program

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Defensive Skills Day is a 3-hour program on a driving range that offers new drivers the opportunity to learn skills to help them when they encounter challenging situations on the road. Highlights of the class include learning how to control a car during a skid and how to maneuver precisely in unexpected situations. Our instructors guide students through the various courses to increase skill and comfort levels. Through repetition and expert tips, we prepare students for life-long safe driving. Defensive Skills Day takes place primarily in the family vehicle, except for the skidding exercise which takes place in DriveSafe vehicles. Defensive Skills Day can be purchased separately or as part of Drivers Education and Behind-the-Wheel Programs.

My instructors did well, I would definitely want to come back and do this again.
Jann E, Denver
My daughter recently attended the Defensive Driving Skills training, which was a great class for a new driver! She came back more confident in her driving skills, and she learned so many important pieces of the driving experience.
Ken, Highlands Ranch
I enjoyed the obstacle course because it involved many different skills…
Julie H, Greenwood Village
I have been very pleased with all the driving instructors assigned to my daughter. The Defensive Skills Day is a must! After her Driving Test for her license, she remarked, “I am glad that I went before my Driving Test, otherwise I would not have been able to park properly.”
Parent, Highlands Ranch
My daughter attended the Defensive Skills Day and it went well. I got to ride with her at the end when I returned, and I have to admit, I was very shocked at how much she improved! She drove me through the timed obstacle course and her skill level blew me away. She said she has much more confidence in driving now. This course is very well worth the money and I highly recommend it to all parents.
Elizabeth, Wheat Ridge
I thought all the instructors did a very good job throughout the course of the day. They were all very informative, explained everything well, and I learned a lot at each station. My favorite part of the class was the skid course and the obstacle course, because both were really fun as well as good to know/use for the future.
Allison, Westminster
The instructors today were awesome and very supportive in everything they did with us.
Donnetta S, Denver
My daughter loved the program, she thought it was very fun and very educational. It boosted her confidence in her driving skills and taught her new tricks in how to handle herself in challenging driving conditions. A well thought out program.
Brittany, Evergreen
I liked that the instructors gave positive feedback and also their little tips and tricks.
Laura H, Westminster
The behind-the-wheel and defensive driving instructors are top notch! Our son learned a lot and gained a lot of confidence from the experience. And he crushed his driver’s test! Thanks Drive Safe!
