MHB Defensive Driving Course Powered by Chevrolet

[ADV]

It was a bright and very sunny Saturday morning when I brought over my Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers over to Shah Alam for the MHB Defensive Driving Course Powered by Chevrolet.

Defensive driving? Yes it’s very important especially these days to have the skills and knowledge so you know instinctively how to react in an emergency.

Here’s a little peak of what we did.

 

 

Why a Defensive Driving Course? Well take a look at these statistics!

Scary right? Well we need to equip ourselves with the skills to avoid, react and manoeuvre safely thereby minimizing the propensity for collisions and accidents.

First up was the indoor/ theory session which we learned some important do’s and don’t on the road

 

Then it was on to the practical session in a vacant car park lot which was set up for a variety of techniques.

The Cruze’s ‘Electronic Stability Control’ and ‘Traction Control’ were turned OFF to enable the car to skid (so we could learn how to control a skid)

.

Some basic knowledge on how to maintain a car. You’d be surprised at how many of the girls had no idea what was under the hood.

Teaching the girls about tire wear and reading the tire thread

Then it was time to learn some defensive driving skills!

First up was how to control the steering during the slalom exercise

Then how to control the car during an emergency ABS braking situation

And then how to recover and manoeuvre during a skid
