How is Advanced Driver different?
Advanced Driver is the only leading driver safety-program that targets the top six causes of driver crashes.
After years of extensive research, the Advanced Driver team of leading scientists, doctors and traffic-safety experts has identified the six major causes of collisions:
- Visual awareness and memory: Knowing what is going on all around your vehicle and remembering what you see
- Hazard recognition: Discriminating between hazards and non-hazards so you can take the appropriate driver action to avoid a crash
- Speed adjustment: Adjusting your speed to road conditions and traffic
- Space management: Keeping a safe space cushion around your car
- Risk perception: Understanding dynamic risk as you drive and knowing your risk level in any given situation
- Lifestyle: Recognizing factors that impact your crash risk before you get behind the wheel and while you are driving
Advanced Driver measures driver skills and improves your ability to avoid crashes.
The result is a program that:
- Significantly improves your crash avoidance skills
- Significantly reduces your chances of being in a crash
- Significantly reduces your chances of being injured in a crash
- Significantly reduces your chances of receiving a traffic violation
With Advanced Driver, you'll notice an immediate improvement in the way you drive.
