EKTC Teaches The Original Defensive Driving
The National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course was the
first driver improvement course in the nation. Since 1964, more than 50 million
drivers worldwide have taken it, and the ranks are growing by more than a
million a year. Nearly 40 years later, this course still sets the standard for
driver improvement training.
- No other driver improvement course has a higher rate of
success in reducing the number and severity of collisions. A recent study
conducted by the College of Lake County in Lake County, Illinois found that
drivers who participated in DDC-4 had 13% fewer negligent driving arrests and
9% fewer collisions than drivers who did not participate.
- No other course is so widely used by business and industry,
municipalities, driving schools and the military.
- It's one of the few driver improvement programs that offers
consistent quality and content nationwide.
- The course is continually updated based on research
developments in traffic laws and automobile technology. Trainers are monitored
to make sure they're delivering the most current techniques and
- We can customize the course to address driving and road
conditions in your area.
DDC-4 is a four-hour driver improvement program that also makes an ideal
refresher course. In just half a day, DDC-4 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.
