Defensive Driving Course – 6 hours (Texas required)

National Safety Council (NSC) is the premier provider of defensive driver training in the nation and Lone Star Driving Safety Education is proud to be a provider of these classes.  NSC’s state programs are trusted by more traffic safety courts, motor vehicle departments, municipalities, businesses, government agencies and driving schools nationwide for consistent quality course materials and instructors.

The Need for Defensive Driving

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of occupational fatalities and the leading cause of death for ages 2-39 and ages 50-72. Plus, the increasing number of new drivers and vehicles on the road creates a continuing need for defensive driving training across all age groups.  The National Safety Council has long been a partner with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, privately owned businesses and many others in the public and private sectors to improve traffic safety. Stronger laws and enforcement, coupled with effective campaigns managed or endorsed by NSC, have contributed to reductions in traffic deaths from impaired driving or distracted driving, non-use of seat belts and unsafe driving behaviors.

Lone Star Driving Safety Education is committed to ensuring that people get what they need to drive defensively—knowledge, skills and perspective that will help them continue to prevent injuries and save even more lives. Our goal is to save even more lives by educating not only teens and parents of new drivers but, each and everyone of us who share our nation’s highways.

Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving

Driver error causes almost 70% of all motor vehicle collisions, and errors are often the result of a poor driver attitude. DDC – Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving helps problem drivers make a direct connection between their attitude and behavior on the road.

Collisions are costly, averaging $6,200 in property damage alone. This is just one of the consequences covered in this highly effective course, which helps problem drivers see the financial, legal and personal implications behind the choices they make. It also shows them how to take responsibility for their actions.

What participants will learn:
• Latest research on impaired driving, including expanded information on how alcohol and drugs affect driving
• Updated state laws on license revocation and suspension
• Motivation behind effective and ineffective decision making
• How to embrace change and develop an action plan to drive more defensively.
• Dangers of distracted driving, including texting and other cell phone use.

Course description
DDC – Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving is used extensively for court referrals, as a diversion program for drivers with excessive violations and to retrain drivers with poor driving records. The program helps create a new mindset, improving a person’s attitude so that his or her driving behavior can change.

Course benefits
The third edition features engaging topics and course materials, including compelling videos that challenge drivers to not accept excuses but rather to focus on the consequences of their behaviors. Participants join in non-threatening, non-judgmental discussions as to why they elect to drive as they do — and how they can change.
