Defensive Night Driving

According to research, traffic death rates are three times greater at night than during the day.  
Many of us are unaware of night driving’s hazards or don’t know how to effectively deal with these hazards. Driving at night is more of a challenge than many people think. 
It sounds obvious, but when driving at night, your ability to see ahead, and the ability of other road users to see you, is reduced.

This defensive night driving course will equip you with the necessary skill to safely operate your vehicle at night when VISIBILITY is limited.
