eDriving has launched the first cross-over defensive driving course for both corporate fleet and consumer audiences.

The new One More Second® course has been launched as part of National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

The One More Second course helps drivers develop attitudes and behaviors necessary to be in control behind the wheel and is part of eDriving’s commitment to addressing the 94 percent of collisions caused by driver behaviors and attitudes. eDriving draws on cognitive and behavioral science to develop cutting-edge tools that break down common misconceptions and empower drivers to improve their driving behavior.

The defensive driving course provides families and other drivers with training that builds on eDriving’s award-winning work with global corporate clients, including Johnson & Johnson and Nestlé. The two-hour course appeals to all learning styles using a variety of interactive multimedia to engage drivers, including:

  • The industry’s first full-motion video “journeys” that help drivers explore the unique hazards of city, highway and urban driving.
  • Full-motion video hazard identification exercises that help drivers practice spotting threats before they become unavoidable dangers.
  • Frequent knowledge checks to engage the driver and reinforce key concepts.

One More Second emphasizes the critical principles that constitute the foundation of defensive driving including anticipating the actions of others, preparing for the unexpected, being aware of potential threats before they become problems, never assuming that other drivers will do the right thing, and helping drivers understand their own risky behavior.

“One More Second provides a fresh new approach to defensive driving for all drivers, focusing on the attitudes and behaviors that cause nearly all roadway crashes,” said Celia Stokes, CEO of eDriving. “Research shows the importance of family cultural context on driving behavior, and the most effective driver training approach involves parent participation. That starts with parents assessing what behaviors they are modeling unwittingly. We highly recommend that every parent of a novice driver take this course alongside their teen to reset some of their own habits and understand the key principles they must teach and reinforce.”

The course is available at eDriving.com. Regularly priced at $25, the course is $18 (more than 25 percent off) in April for Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
