Summaries

Summary Sentence: Emphasizing safe and legal behind-the-wheel behaviors and actions

Full Summary: Throughout the 6-hour course, participants learn how to recognize both potential and immediate hazards, how to avoid accidents in a variety of driving conditions and how to choose safe and legal driving behaviors. The emphasis is on identifying and choosing safe and legal behind-the-wheel behaviors and actions.

The National Safety Council first introduced defensive driving concepts in 1964. The DDC has come a long way since then, but the importance of sharing defensive driving principles with all drivers still has not changed. Our course will provide you with the tools and knowledge to become a better driver.

The goal of the National Safety Council's DDC is to provide drivers with knowledge and safe driving techniques to prevent accidents and violations. This course focuses on accident prevention through hazard recognition and application of accident-avoidance techniques. In addition, the course addresses common driving violations that result in accidents and how to change driving habits to eliminate moving violations.

Throughout the 6-hour course, participants learn how to recognize both potential and immediate hazards, how to avoid accidents in a variety of driving conditions and how to choose safe and legal driving behaviors. The emphasis is on identifying and choosing safe and legal behind-the-wheel behaviors and actions.
