    Defensive Driving Course – 4

    DDC-4 is a fast-paced, four-hour driver improvement program that offers practical strategies to reduce collision-related injuries, fatalities, and costs. It addresses the importance of attitude in preventing accidents and reinforces the good driving skills students already have. Most importantly, DDC-4 shows students the consequences of the choices they make behind the wheel and puts defensive driving in a personal context.Classes are available statewide.


    Defensive Driving Course – Alive at 25

    This young driver program zeroes in on drivers between the ages of 16 and 24 – the group most likely to be involved in fatal collisions. This highly interactive four-hour program teaches young drivers how to take control of situations by taking responsibility for their own driving behavior. Classes are available statewide.


    Defensive Driving Course – Professional Truck Driver

    Although professional truck drivers are involved in fewer collisions than other motorists, collisions involving trucks are far more deadly and costly. Professional truck drivers and their employers have a tremendous responsibility for keeping the highways safe for others.

    For over 20 years, the National Safety Council’s DDC-Professional Truck Driver program has given truck drivers the defensive driving techniques that help them avoid collisions and violations and make them take personal responsibility for their driving decisions. Classes are available statewide.
