Furthermore, after receiving a ticket or similar driving offense, it can be helpful or necessary to brush up on basic driving skills.

Better ensuring safety on the road is always the No. 1 reason for taking a defensive driving course. “Furthermore, after receiving a ticket or similar driving offense, it can be helpful or necessary to brush up on basic driving skills,” said Dave Paul, owner of Driving Arizona, which was recently named the No. 1 defensive driving school in Chandler, AZ, by DefensiveDriving.org.

For drivers young and old, Paul lists the following three reasons why taking a defensive driving course is imperative:

No. 1: Acquire education on how to anticipate and respond to difficult situations. “You’ll learn how to react based on road or weather conditions to make your driving the safest it can possibly be,” said Paul.

No. 2: Learn crash-prevention techniques. This includes education about distracted driving, psychological risks such as stress or fatigue, driving under the influence and using a cell phone while driving. “The recent ban in cellular phone use while driving will hopefully reduce the amount of car crash incidences, especially in teens,” added Paul.

No. 3: Save money on car insurance. “Drivers who complete DMV-approved defensive driving courses can save significant money on their car insurance,” noted Paul. Additionally, if one has a ticket, passing a defensive driving course can help take points off their license.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, in 2016 there were 126,845 vehicle crashes in the state of Arizona. Additionally, 962 people were killed in vehicle crashes in 2016, 65 more than the previous year, representing a 7.3 percent increase. “It is important to understand these statistics and become a defensive driver that will allow for less collisions and points added to your driving record,” concluded Paul.
