Module 7 – OEA Driving Strategy

In order to quickly recognize, evaluate and manage actual or potential risks in the road environment, drivers must apply the OEA (Observe – Evaluate – Act) driving strategy.

With this module, you will learn about the OEA driving strategy. This strategy enables you to better anticipate at-risk situations and react accordingly so as to adopt safe, cooperative and responsible behaviour in the presence of various road users, particularly vulnerable users.
