The SPOT Concept

drive for life's Proprietary Approach to Decision Based Training

The drive for life training program improves driving skills and behaviours and thereby reduces collisions through its tailored use of cognitive based learning techniques, proven driving practices, and state of the art simulation. 

The drive for life proprietary SPOT™ curriculum (Scanning, Predicting, Options, Taking Action) helps drivers reach a higher level of situational awareness.  By becoming “thinking” drivers they utilize superior scanning and predicting abilities to avoid dangerous situations.  Our experienced based training heightens awareness of difficult conditions. 

Collision Reductions through SPOT

To successfully reduce collision incidents, the following training tasks are addressed with the drive for life curriculum:

  1. Strengthen overall driving awareness by enhancing visual acuity and engagement of multiple senses.
  2. Engage active thinking to move to proactive versus reactive driving.
  3. Create an environment that allows experimentation with multiple strategies and plans to deal with complex driving challenges.
  4. Create time efficient practice sessions to maximize cycle time and positive reinforcement of correct actions.

The SPOT Approach to Decision Based Driving Performance

  • improve situational awareness.
  • use of 4 senses.
  • active eye and head movement.
  • becoming an engaged driver-Use your brain to become a Thinking Driver
  • multi tasking to manage multiple hazards.
  • intersection management.
  • effective use of speed and space management principles.
  • learning to be proactive vs reactive.
 Take Action
  • building experience among a range of situations.
  • quick, decisive but well thought out actions to hazards.
  • exposure to adverse driving conditions.
