Useful Tips


Driving Facts

  • The majority of car "accidents" is the direct result of a sequence of events brought on by neglect. Statistics show that the risk of being involved in a collision is the greatest in the first two years after having passed the driving "test". Proper theoretical training facilitates the passing of the theoretical exam. Once this knowledge is properly applied in the car the likelihood of a collision is dramatically reduced. Collision are costly to everybody

  • Driving situations cannot be duplicated during a simple driving test. A well-trained driver avoids being involved in collisions. Properly trained drivers realize the benefits of applying defensive driving techniques.

  • The single most dangerous activity that most of us will engage in is simply driving automobile.

  • 1 out 5 Filipinos will cause or be a victim of a traffic accident.

  • Driver error and lack of experience are the leading cause of accidents (usually males), in the Philippines.

  • Most new drivers are never taught basic accident avoidance.
