The Canada Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course has be designed to help people become better and safer drivers.
Safe driving requires the adoption of an attitude toward operating as motor vehicle known as "defensive driving". The defensive driver is not timid or over-cautious, but is determined to take every reasonable precaution to prevent traffic mishaps, over and above what is required by law.
This course gives the participant the opportunity to learn what is involved in driving defensively, why and how various types of motor vehicle collisions occur and what it takes to prevent them.
The one-day course will be covered by the instructor in 6 modules.
