Driving Dynamics — Advanced Performance Driver Safety Training Courses

Posted on May 22, 2012


Coming to San Mateo County Event Center this May 29th, is Driving Dynamics Advanced Performance Driver Safety Training Course.

Bill Buff, the founder of DRIVING DYNAMICS and a successful, highly-regarded race car driver, developed the principle-based driver safety training curriculum which today is known as “The One Second Advantage™”. The principles incorporated into our training are rooted in major automotive safety research which determined that 90% of all traffic crashes can be avoidedwhen the driver has just one more second to react and knows what to do with that additional one second.

This unique, results-oriented approach to driver training enables individuals and major corporations achieve and sustain substantial reductions in crash rates, in some cases as much as a 60% rate reduction. The efficacy of this time-tested approach has been proven in over 100 million miles of driving.

Today, DRIVING DYNAMICS not only continues to offer its expert driver safety training programs all across the US and Canada but is also actively involved in assisting fleet management lower their exposure to driver losses through its ever expanding portfolio of Xtracare™ risk managementservices. These unique tools and services help fleets identify and manage “at-risk” drivers early on so that proactive measures can be taken to mitigate or avoid losses.

Driving Dynamics works with corporate fleets to help improve their driver safety performance. They offer behind-the-wheel training courses throughout North America using their fleet of mobile classrooms and their patented controlled slide car.

The class that will be held here in San Mateo will give drivers tips on how to identify road hazards and dangerous situations before they occur to avoid any accidents or injury. Drivers will learn the skills necessary to get out of a situation safely without crash or injury.

Driving Dynamics’ fleet of mobile classrooms and certified instructors fan out across North America to conduct one-day training programs in various locations such as San Mateo County Event Center. Clients are given an open enrollment schedule in which they can send as many drivers as they wish to receive this training. Many of the corporate clients they service send their sales and service reps to take this course — anyone who must drive to their work location is encouraged to take this class.

In the one day session, a typical class will instruct about 28 drivers. A lot of time is spent behind the wheel to hard-wire the driving skills to keep them safe. The course is heavily focused on practical driving; drivers’ ability to execute their new skills. 50% of the time they spend is behind the wheel. What do they get to practice on? A patented controlled slide car that simulates a variety of road conditions. Every driver gets to drive the vehicle to mimic skids, hydroplaning, sliding on ice and swerves.

The one takeaway Driving Dynamics wishes to give to their students is their understanding of what the One-Second Advantage is. A study conducted by Mercedes Benz determined if a driver has one more second to react and knows what to do with that one second, over 90% of crashes can be avoided. The Driving Dynamics Advance Performance Driver Safety Training Course creates additional time for the driver to asses the situation and properly react.
