Safe Backing (With or Without a Trailer)

Regardless of your skill level, backing up safely is one of the most difficult tasks to perform while driving. While most new vehicles have back-up cameras, the most reliable operators are the ones who can back safely without the use of aids such as these.  A good driver requires the ability to “read” the environment in a 360 degree fashion at all times, particularly when backing.  Professional training teaches the overall awareness and skills required to complete backing in a safe manner, every time.
