Florida Driver Improvement Programs

  • Florida Demands the Best; the National Safety Council Delivers


    National Safety Council didn't just create the first driver improvement program in Florida. We were the first national organization to offer driver improvement courses across the United States.


    What can we do for You? 


    NSC Defensive Driving Courses (DDC) are approved by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.


    Basic Driver Improvement Online 


    Florida motorists who receive a ticket for a non-criminal moving violation and do not hold a commercial driver license may elect to attend the four-hour Basic Driver Improvement program to avoid points being added to their driving record.

    Motorists also may be required to attend a BDI course to fulfill a Traffic Collision Avoidance Course requirement in order to retain their driver license if they:

    • Were the driver in a crash and were found at fault AND someone was transported to the hospital OR
    • Had two crashes in a two-year period that resulted in property damage greater than $50

    In some cases, motorists may choose to attend a BDI course to receive insurance discounts. This discount is solely at the discretion of the insurance carrier.
