Defensive Driving: Classroom

The National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course-4 (DDC-4) is a fast-paced, four-hour classroom program that also makes for an ideal refresher course. Focusing on the importance of attitude in accident prevention and avoidance as well as the good driving skills students already have, DDC-4 shows the consequences of poor choices made behind the wheel—and puts defensive driving into a personal context.  No other driver improvement course is more widely used by businesses and industries, courts and government agencies, state departments, municipalities, driving schools and the military.
