What are my options for defensive driving training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It's a defensive driving powerpoint presentation used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer we offer a train the trainer course.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Defensive Driving Training Course?

Our Defensive Driving safety training course is regulation compliant. Each class contains sections on proper vehicle care, law and controls, weather conditions, preparedness, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.
Though we include some basic traffic and driving laws, you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, provincial, territorial and local laws and regulations.

Why do I need defensive driving training?

With driving being such a commonplace activity, it is easy to become complacent and develop bad habits. Roughly 3,000 people die in road crashes every day—that’s about 1.25 million each year, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel. While it’s impossible to know the exact conditions of every accident, many accidents could have been prevented had the drivers practiced safe, defensive driving techniques.

This training can help remind drivers of both commercial or passenger vehicles of the basics of driving on public roads, company property, or other locations where an accident is possible.
