Community-Based Defensive Driving


The Defensive Driving Course, developed by the National Safety Council, teaches basic crash prevention techniques and has a proven record of reducing traffic violations and incidents. It's taught by experienced, certified traffic safety instructors. The class consists of lecture, films and discussions. There is no behind-the-wheel driving, and there are no tests.

We offer an 8-hour course as well as a 4-hour refresher for those who have already taken an 8-hour course.
