Course Description

What`s the most dangerous thing you do? You might hand glide? Sky dive? Hunt? Deep-sea dive? Smoke? No! They probably didn`t tell you in driver`s training, but the most hazardous activity in which you`ll ever engage is driving a vehicle on public roads.

That`s right. More people die, by far, every year on and off work in their cars than while doing anything else. Our course is a must for anyone who drives in connection with work. Well, actually, you might think after taking this course that all drivers should take this safety course.

Detailing the causes of the hazards, we edge you into the fundamentals of defensive driving and then steer into road conditions, stopping distance, vehicle spacing, backing, evasive driving techniques, parking, drinking, accidents, road rage, and cell phones. Every new driver in your company will journey through all their driving instructors never taught them, and then return safely to work. This course can be taken in a self-directed pace. You can achieve a completed program of study in as little time as 30 minutes. You will have 1 year access to this course.
