    New company regulations mean that everyone in my organisation has to take a "Defensive Driving" course.

    The org. is big, so it may be a while until it's my turn, but I wondered if you guys could explain a little better what this might be about.


    All I know is, it said a few hours classroom session followed by a drive with an "examiners commentry".

    Seems to be methods of increased awareness of whats going on around you and decreased wear and tear of the vehicle apparently.

    I quite agree - done the IAM course and defensive driving. I learnt something different each time.

    If it's similar to the course I did when I had a company car the instructor was an ex traffic policeman, extremely knowledgable and very constructive about how to read the road, conditions and other road users activities.

    The other main thing is to enjoy it!
