Rhode Island Defensive Driving Test

Being able to drive defensively 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 new drivers are more likely to be involved in accidents due to inexperience. Defensive driving involves being aware of all of your surroundings, including other vehicles and the weather and road conditions. It also means anticipating issues that might lie ahead and knowing how to handle them when they arrive. By learning to drive defensively, inexperienced Rhode Island drivers can reduce the risk of being involved in an accident. Further, a young driver with defensive skills is in a much better position to handle unexpected situations that come their way. Ultimately, developing defensive driving skills is an important element that young motorists should learn to keep our roadways safe.

With all this in mind, isn’t it time to see how much you know about defensive driving?. This quiz will test your understanding of many defensive driving topics, from proper following distances to what to do if you’re being tailgated.
