New Jersey Defensive Driving Test

Being able to drive defensively is an essential skill for all drivers, especially for young drivers. This is because young drivers often make poor split-second decisions due to their lack of experience. Defensive driving involves being aware of all of your surroundings, including other vehicles and the weather and road conditions. Defensive driving also means being able to anticipate potential problems and take corrective action if necessary. By learning to drive defensively, young license holders have a better chance of avoiding accidents. Defensive drivers are also in a much better position to respond to unexpected situations that come their way. Ultimately, defensive driving is a vital skill that young motorists should learn if they want to be safe drivers.

For anyone that thinks of themselves as an excellent defensive driver, this test should be a piece of cake. 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.
