Oregon Defensive Driving Test

Defensive driving is an essential skill for all drivers, especially 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 all of your surroundings, including other vehicles and the weather and road conditions. Defensive driving also includes being able to anticipate potential problems and take corrective action if necessary. As they gain the ability to anticipate and respond correctly, new license holders have a better chance of avoiding accidents. Further, a young driver with defensive skills is in a much better position to deal with surprises that pop up and could be dangerous. Ultimately, developing defensive driving skills is an important element that young motorists need to grasp if they want to be safe drivers.

For anyone that thinks of themselves as a maestro of defensive driving, this test shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. We’ll cover a variety of topics regarding 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 driving in a construction zone?
