Crash Prevention Training was developed with a careful analysis of the most common accident types and the most dangerous situations on the road. As a group of licensed racecar drivers and police trainers, we understand the skills required to stay safe behind the wheel.

We also sought advice from police and insurance investigators about what attitudes and skills were needed to combat these situations, and how they could be developed in average drivers. Through this investigation one thing became clear: The skills and attitudes needed to be a safe driver can be developed in every driver, through hands-on training.

Crash Prevention Training is the product of that research, a curriculum of hands-on training with professional feedback that teaches average drivers to be great, and great drivers to be better.

In our Crash Prevention Training program, participants learn the following essential skills:

  • Defensive driving techniques
  • Tailgating drills
  • Steering control
  • Speed control
  • Spatial awareness /Backing up
  • Hazardous conditions
  • Rapid decision making
  • Personal risk assessment
  • Proper hand placement and seating
  • Emergency braking (including ABS)
  • Emergency lane change
  • Dealing with distractions
  • Making quick decisions

This instruction takes place at a dedicated training center, where drivers learn how to perform emergency maneuvers and remain safe. This absolutely cannot be learned on public roads or in a simulator.
