Urgent: In an effort to ensure the health and wellbeing of our instructors and students due to current coronavirus concerns, the National Safety Council and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (MA RMV) are canceling all MA classroom driver safety classes through May 4. This includes the 8-hour Driver Retraining Program, 4-hour Driver Attitudinal Retraining Program and the 4-hour State Courts Against Road Rage (SCARR) Program.
NSC is pleased to let you know that the MA RMV has temporarily approved an alternative way to deliver the statutorily required content in the form of an online class, which will be available beginning April 6, 2020. After April 6, your online participation will count as your in-person class requirement.
At this time, there are no faster alternatives for you to complete the Driver Retraining Program. National Safety Council will post additional information to this website as more details are available.
The eight-hour Defensive Driving Course, Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving, has been approved by the Massachusetts RMV License Suspension Unit. The course is taken by motorists as required to avoid suspension or to have their license reinstated.The program is aimed at changing behavior behind the wheel. Through this course drivers learn why they continue to have driving related problems and how they can take responsibility for their actions.
Course Fee is $135 and payable by credit card through our online registration site. You can reschedule to a different date or location at no cost up to the day prior to the start date of your chosen class date. Rescheduling on or after the start date of your class will require a mandatory, non-refundable rescheduling fee.
NSC can make arrangements for the hearing impaired. Please contact us.
