Correct driving posture and technique (e.g. steering, braking, gear changes) in real-life road situations.

Commentary driving

Being smooth, which helps not only safety and comfort, but also the condition of the vehicle.

Making sure that the driver always has an escape route if things go wrong.

Maintaining a “bubble” of free space around the car in potentially dangerous situations.

Conscious signalling of manoeuvres, the mirror-decision-signal-manoeuvre procedure.

Using indirect clues which help predict the development of events on the road.

Safeguarding against risky situations by being in the correct position on the road, and going at the correct speed, in the correct gear.

Making intelligent use of traffic signals and signs.

Conscious and deliberate choice of speed.

Positioning the vehicle on the road in a purposeful manner.

Maintaining appropriate following distance (the three-second rule and more).

Effective observation of the road (establishing scanning routines, looking farther ahead, mirror checks, and more).

It is justified by accident statistics. Contrary to popular belief, only about 20% of road accidents involve skidding, hitting obstacles or leaving the road in an uncontrolled manner. About 60–70% of accidents are much more down-to-earth events, caused by failing to give way to other vehicles, failing to maintain an appropriate following distance, hitting a pedestrian, failing to comply with road regulations, etc. This is exactly the range of issues that defensive driving focuses on, and the only way to practise it is in normal traffic, on a public road. 

Defensive driving training is conducted in normal traffic on public roads, and focuses on:

Defensive driving is a collection of driving techniques whose objective is to anticipate dangerous road situations and prevent them from happening. Defensive driving was first created in the UK in the 1950s for the purpose of training emergency vehicle drivers, and has been continually developed since, mainly in Western Europe and the USA. In a typical fleet of passenger vehicles, a defensive driving programme can reduce accident rates by 20–30%. A private individual can reduce accident risk by up to 80%.
