Collision Avoidance Training (C.A.T.) is a defensive driving and vehicle control program for young drivers developed by the National Traffic Safety Academy. During the one-day course adapted from law enforcement training, young drivers learn how to handle their vehicles in any situation. Designed especially for new drivers who want more specialized experience on the road, C.A.T. teaches hands-on techniques for evasive maneuvers, emergency braking, cornering, backing, skid recovery, steering, acceleration and more.
