Defensive Driving

Updated: Aug 13, 2020

What is defensive driving?

Answer: Defensive driving is driving to save lives, time & money despite the conditions around you and the actions of others. It protects you from what is happening around you.

Four of the most common driving errors are:

1) Reacting too slowly to road hazards (or missing them completely)

2) Impaired driving (being too tired to drive or driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol)

3) Aggressive driving

4) Distracted driving

save lives!

Did you know that the leading cause of occupational fatalities are vehicle-related crashes?

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more than 90% of all vehicle crashes are caused by human error. Which means... they are avoidable.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires yearly defensive driving training for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. We know this can be challenging for busy companies. So, we spent alot of time searching for the best materials and have put together a quick and easy CMV Defensive Driving Class.

Our hope is to partner with you, not only to help you meet DOT's requirements, but to help your drivers understand what defensive driving really means and what unique challenges a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver faces.

The class only takes 2-3 hours and we will come to your facility. Less hassle for you!

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are working on getting an online option ready.
