Company logo Comedy Guys Defensive Driving Dismiss Your ticket And Have Some laughs What is the difference between “defensive driving” vs “driving safety”? is a common question from our customers:

“The court says I need to take a ‘driving safety course,' but all I find is ‘defensive driving classes.' What's up with that?”

Oh, those lawyers: they have different names for everything. Like the French. The simple fact is that a “driving safety course” and a “defensive driving course” are the same thing. Most people call it “defensive driving” except for judges and attorneys who call it “driving safety.”

Texas state agencies that regulate us and other course providers and driving safety schools are calling for us to change from using the description “defensive driving” to their preferred term of “driving safety.” 

This push began when we were governed by the Texas Education Agency, and it continues under the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR to its friends).

Regardless of what you call it, if you're looking to meet a court's requirements to get a ticket dismissed, they're the same thing and we can definitely help you get your ticket dismissed in any Texas court.

As far as ticket dismissal is concerned, “driving safety” and  “defensive driving” are the same thing!

Actually, there is a more subtle difference if you're interested in something more fundamental than satisfying a court.

In a larger sense, “driving safety” is the entire idea of being safe while driving, all the attitudes and knowledge and skills that make any one driver safer when they're behind the wheel.

If you look at it this way then, “defensive driving” — the strategies and techniques wise drivers use to stay out of dangerous situations when they can and deal with them when they must — is just one aspect of this bigger picture. (Of course, most people just want to make the court happy and get their ticket dismissed.  I included all that “bigger picture” stuff to make the pedantic jerk in our office happy.)

    Impressive post! There are a lot of standard defensive driving rules that need to be followed to reduce the probability of an accident. If each and every driver followed these road rules, the number of accidents would be considerably reduced.

    i teahc all of my guys defensive driving would be great if more people did it and even better if they weren’t so competive.

    defensive driving is all about being ready for other peoples mistakes without being competive.

    people need to be not so critical when other drivers make mistakes,it suprises me how close other drivers get as well.
