Oklahoma Safety Council
The National Safety Council 10th Edition Defensive Driving Course (DDC-6) is a comprehensive driver improvement program with a basic 6-hour curriculum offering practical knowledge and techniques to avoid crashes, and to choose safe, responsible, and lawful driving behaviors.
The Rewards of Driver Improvement
After completing the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion which, depending on your state, may make you eligible for point reduction or ticket dismissal. Insurance companies in 34 states offer a reduction on insurance premiums to DDC graduates (check with your insurance carrier for availability). If you sign up as a participant for DDC-6, you’ll also receive our illustrated Participant Guide, with practical exercises and tips you’ll refer to even after the course is over.
The Original Defensive Driving Course
The National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course set the standard for driver improvement training with its introduction in 1964. We’ve trained more than 60 million drivers worldwide since then, reaching more than a million new drivers every year.
Our Defensive Driving Course has the highest rate of success in reducing the number and severity of collisions, and their related costs.
More courts, state departments of motor vehicles, insurance companies, municipalities, businesses, government agencies, and driving schools trust NSC for quality driver improvement training.
It’s the one driver improvement program that offers consistent quality and content nationwide.
NSC’s Research and Statistics team identifies the leading causes of death, injury, and collisions-then we design our training to help drivers avoid those situations.
We keep our instructors up to date on the latest developments in traffic law and automobile technology.
