    Course overview

    This module has been designed to help boost you knowledge and awareness of types of distractions, and provides tips on how to deal with them.

    Driver distractions come in a multitude of different forms. Many of these are present inside your vehicle: passengers, pets, loud music, mobile phones, satnav directions, food... it's all too easy to become distracted from the task of driving. There are also a huge range of external things that could be classed as distractions, including unusual sights and situations, other road users behaving erratically, and the confusion caused by congestion. Driving in a proactive manner, carrying out early observations and having a system to ensure that you take in and process all the necessary information, is a great way to shut out distractions and to remain focused and able to deal with situations as they arise.

    This module normally costs £5 for 20 minutes' learning, but is currently available free-of-charge as a special promotion. Click on the button below to register and download.
