Pennsylvania Defensive Driving Test

Having defensive driving skills is critically important for anyone who gets behind the wheel, but it is especially important for young drivers. The reason for this is that young drivers often make poor split-second decisions because of their lack of experience. Defensive driving involves being aware of road conditions and other motorists. It also means anticipating issues that might lie ahead and knowing how to handle them when they arrive. By learning to drive defensively, inexperienced license holders make the roadways safer. Defensive drivers are also better prepared to deal with surprises that may arise while driving. Ultimately, defensive driving is a vital skill that young motorists should learn before getting behind the wheel.

Now that we’ve discussed the ins and outs, let’s see how much you know about driving defensively. This quiz will test your knowledge on a variety of topics, from proper following distances to how to deal with someone experiencing road rage.
