Mississippi Defensive Driving Test

Defensive driving is critically important for anyone who gets behind the wheel, but it is especially important for people just earning their drivers license. This is because young drivers often make poor split-second decisions because of inexperience. What does defensive driving mean? It means being aware of both the driving conditions and the other drivers on the road. Defensive driving also means being able to anticipate potential problems and take corrective action if necessary. As they gain the ability to anticipate and respond correctly, inexperienced drivers make the roadways safer. Further, a young driver with defensive skills is better prepared to respond to surprises that come their way. At the end of the day developing defensive driving skills is an important element that aspiring Mississippi drivers need to grasp to keep our roadways safe.

If you consider yourself an excellent defensive driver, this test shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. In this test, you’ll see questions that cover many elements of defensive driving that will help you gauge your true depth of knowledge on the topic. Do you know what to do in a skidding vehicle on an icy road? Or, what about when you have someone tailgating you?
