Online Defensive Driving Course – Condensed

Course Overview

Our Defensive Driving course explores the six components of the SAFER System of defensive driving: Space, Attitude, Foresight, Eyesight, and Responsibility. This program was developed for drivers in Canada by Dr. Randy Flemmer who has over 30 years of driver education and fleet safety experience. Note that this course is a 3-hour online course, and is NOT the same as our “Online Defensive Driving 3 Demerit Reduction” course and if you are looking to reduce the number of demerits on your license, we encourage you to check out that course instead.


Online course duration is approximately 3 hours.

You will be automatically un-enrolled from this course 365 days after purchase.
