South Carolina Defensive Driving Test

Having defensive driving skills is critically important for anyone who gets behind the wheel, especially for new drivers. The reason for this is that young drivers often make poor split-second decisions due to their lack of experience. Defensive driving involves paying attention to 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, new drivers make the roadways safer. Defensive drivers are also in a much better position to handle surprises that may arise while driving. At the end of the day developing defensive driving skills is an important element that all new drivers in South Carolina need to grasp if they want to be safe drivers.
