Defensive Driving Training




Our onsite defensive driving training uses a combination of online, classroom and range training combined with learning checks during all training phases to create safer drivers who are prepared to drive defensively on the road.


It’s designed to teach both CDL and non-CDL drivers how to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) skillfully and safely, stay alert and driving defensively on the road, avoid distracted driving, prepare for extreme weather, and manage proper speed and space on the highway.
