The Think and Do of driving; The SIPDE Process: Dynamic skills required to deal with road hazards. Defensive Driving is a tried and tested method specifically designed to prevent road accidents and collisions.
Road-Craft deals with the practical application of Defensive Driving Techniques, in order to establish and maintain a “safety cushion” around the vehicle at all times.
A specialised hands-on training module on the racing circuit, which is aimed at developing the driver’s ability to apply advanced techniques in dealing with varying (wet/dry) road conditions, at normal speed.
While it is true that some accidents are unavoidable, research has found driver error to be the single biggest cause of motor vehicle accidents in South Africa, amounting to 90,6% of all collisions!
Advanced driver training has a dramatic effect on these statistics. It was found (for example) that where an average of 25% of vehicles in fleets are involved in collisions, this ratio can drop to as low as 3% when advanced driving skills and techniques were consistently applied.
The training instills a consciousness of road safety and safe driving practices and which helps the driver to eliminate driving errors and to mitigate his or her exposure to the risk inherent on public roads. It also brings many years practical driving experience (including some attainable only by accident!) within just a few hours of advanced driving tuition.
