Even the most safety-conscious commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver is at risk of engaging in driving behaviors which could easily lead to a crash on today’s crowded highways. Change in weather or road conditions, or suddenly driving too fast becomes a risk factor. Impaired performance because of fatigue looking and not seeing or, failing to look, inattention or daydreaming or an unexpected external distraction can all lead to a truck crash.

Our Safe Driving Practices for CMV Drivers course focuses on raising consciousness of CMV drivers about common driving errors and to provide valuable driving tips through easily accessible tools. This course, developed in conjunction with the experts from the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), covers the Defensive Driving portion of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Accident Countermeasures Manual.

Employing defensive driving techniques makes every driver on the roadway safer. This course provides driving tips and maintenance checks to help CMV drivers use defensive driving techniques while operating CMVs.
