NSC State Authorized Defensive Driving Courses
The National Safety Council has been America’s leading safety advocate for over 100 years. NSC works to eliminate the leading causes of preventable death and injury, focusing efforts on the workplace, roadway and impairment.
NSC pioneered the nation’s first Defensive Driving Course in 1964 and has provided driver improvement programs to state motor vehicle agencies and traffic courts since 1976. NSC has trained over 1 million drivers annually, more than 80-million in total.
NSC provides the nation’s very best driver safety programs. In the mid-1970s, NSC built a dedicated Data Management Center (DMC) to centralize operations for all state-level classroom driver re-training and driver improvement programs. Across the country, DMC has been administering classroom-based driver safety programs to repeat offenders for over 40 years.
NSC state programs are trusted by traffic safety courts, motor vehicle departments, municipalities, businesses, government agencies and driving schools nationwide for providing consistent, quality course materials and instructors.
