Dynamic Defensive Driving takes its name from two particular techniques underwriting all low-risk driving – the need to use energy to balance opposing forces and the need to avoid potential collisions – others’ as well as one’s own. It is made up of four accumulating layers... interaction with: 1. the car through its controls (e.g. steering wheel) and facilities (e.g. mirrors) 2. specific streetscape features and areas (e.g. crests, bends intersections) 3. mobile elements of traffic flows (e.g. other cars, trucks, emergency service vehicles) 4. potentially mobile/hazardous entities (e.g. children, cyclists, bushes) Within each layer lies a number of ‘driver operations’, the more complex of which (like the above layers) require competence in their component simpler parts. Layer 1 implies the need for a minimum of surrounding traffic, layer 2 suggests a light traffic density, layer 3 a moderate traffic density and layer 4 a heavy and diverse traffic density. This strategic view maximises licence applicants’ self-reliance from the very beginning – the most efficient way to address and integrate the most important difference between a provisional and a learner’s licence: the need for no assistance
