What to expect from a defensive driving course

There can be lots of reasons for people to take a defensive driving course. You may be a new driver, and want some additional help with remaining safe on the roads. You may not have driven for a while and feel as though you need to improve your awareness. In some circumstances, taking a defensive driving course can also help to reduce insurance premiums and have driving tickets expunged.
Whatever your reasons for taking the test, you need to find one in your area. For instance, if you are living a busy life in San Diego, you do not want to have to travel too far. It may be a good idea to check with California DMV, about available tests. You could also search for tests that are available to take online. Here are a few tips on what to expect when you find a course and make a start.
    1. What will you learn

Defensive driving courses are all slightly different from each other, but they cover the same basics. One of the most important things you learn about is the state driving laws. So if you are that driver in San Diego you will get an updated insight into California state driving laws.
Being safe on the road is not all about laws though; you need to take account of human behavior, including your own. Taking a defensive driving course should help you to see the potential problems that being tired or angry can cause. This is important information as most of us recognise the issue with drink and drugs but do not think about others factors that can influence driving ability.
Most people have moments when they do something that is not safe, when it comes to driving, such as not wearing a belt for a short journey, or answering a call on their phone. If you take a defensive driving course, you learn more about the real consequences of your actions. This is a good thing, when it comes to your safety behind the wheel.
    1. Is a defensive driving course really worth it?

If you are taking a defensive driving course due to a driving violation, you have no choice in the matter. But what if the choice is yours? Is it worthwhile taking this type of course? Only you can really answer that question. You need to decide what you want to get from taking the course. The fact is that most drivers can benefit from having more awareness of how their actions impact on road safety an how they can avoid potential incidents caused by others, simply by being observant and driving in the right way. The benefits of a defensive driving course may be even more strongly felt if you are:
  • A new driver.
  • A young driver.
  • A nervous driver.
  • Someone who is driving again after being away from it.

Driving is a big responsibility. You should do all you can to ensure the safety of yourself and others. A defensive driving course provides you with advice and information you need to help you do this.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
