Newcastle Driving School also teaches Defensive Driving. Defensive driving is not driving slowly, its driving on your guard and being ready to take evasive action immediately. Defensive driving involves techniques such as checking over your shoulder when changing lanes, covering your brake when approaching dangerous situations in the traffic and many other techniques that will keep you and your passengers safe. By learning how to be a defensive driver, you’ll be prepared for a worst case scenario and respond spontaneously to the pre- learned safety drills.
