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 defensive driver 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.
