Defensive Driving Schools: An Overview

Jennifer Bailey
March 1, 2006

Attending defensive driving school is a great way to brush up on the skills to operate a motor vehicle with advanced techniques to avoid a potential accident or a situation where one could possibly occur.

Defensive driving is based on the premise that you, the driver are actually a very good and safe driver that must be alert and able to react to the dangerous driving that others are engaging in. The goal of defensive driving is to create a proactive driver to avoid dangerous road situations or the poor conduct of other drivers. Specific techniques and basic rules are used to achieve a safer driving experience.

Defensive driving school, sometimes called traffic school, is often taught by a traffic officer at a classroom in a municipal building. The goal of the school is to provide experienced drivers with advanced skills and knowledge to become a safer driver. Changes in technology and the economy have allowed for private enterprise to take over the task of offering defensive driving courses, in accordance with the state standards.

Anybody can take defensive driving courses to brush up on skills or to qualify for discounts on car insurance premiums. Most often individuals are referred to defensive driving courses after being ticketed for a moving violation or having been in an accident. Depending upon the laws of the municipality, the documented completion of a defensive driving course can allow for a dismissal of the ticket. Defensive driving courses improve drivers' overall skills and awareness, contributing to making roads across the nation safer for everyone.
