Cell phones, fast food, mascara – Oh my!

These days it seems drivers take more risks behind the wheel. Good defensive driving techniques are more important than ever. Driver Education teaches the basics rules of the road, while Advanced Driver training courses, such as In Control teaches much more. Any driver with a learner’s permit and enough experience to generally control a vehicle is eligible to take an advanced driver training course. This training is highly recommended for teen drivers. Not only does it teach advanced driving skills, but it may reduce your insurance costs up to 10%.

During a half-day course (4.5 hours), participants learn the following essential skills:

  • Defensive driving techniques
  • Tailgating avoidance/safety
  • Steering and speed control
  • Spatial awareness
  • Skills for hazardous conditions
  • Personal risk assessment
  • Proper seating and hand placement
  • Emergency braking (including ABS)
  • Emergency lane changes
  • The dangers of distractions

Classes are held at dedicated training centers throughout New England. Students use In Control’s fleet of safe, current model sedans during the training. Since there is a fee for the class, check with your Client Service Representative to see if your insurance company offers discounts.

Be Alert! Don’t get Hurt.
