Vermont Defensive Driving Test

Defensive driving 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 young drivers often make poor split-second decisions due to inexperience. Defensive driving involves paying attention to 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. By learning to drive defensively, young license holders have a better chance of avoiding accidents. Defensive drivers are also better prepared to handle surprises that may arise while driving. At the end of the day developing defensive driving skills is an important element that young motorists need to grasp to keep our roadways safe.

For anyone that thinks of themselves as an excellent defensive driver, this test should be a piece of cake. 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 when you have someone tailgating you?
