West Virginia Defensive Driving Test

Having defensive driving skills is an essential skill for all drivers, 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 their lack of experience. Defensive driving involves being aware of all of your surroundings, including other vehicles and the weather and road conditions. Defensive driving also includes anticipating issues that might lie ahead and knowing how to handle them when they arrive. As they gain the ability to anticipate and respond correctly, new West Virginia drivers can reduce the risk of being involved in an accident. Defensive drivers are also better prepared to deal with unexpected situations that may arise while driving. Ultimately, defensive driving is a vital skill that young motorists need to grasp if they want to be safe drivers.
