Using the IPDE Driving Strategy
Driver’s education classes teach students to use the IPDE strategy when driving. IPDE stands for Identify, Predict, Decide, and Execute. This strategy also should be used in off-road driving.
- Identify any objects or conditions that may cause you trouble while driving.
- Predict what results might occur when you encounter the object or condition.
- Decide which of the actions you could take will provide the least risk based on your predictions.
- Execute the action you select.
