Attitudinal Dynamics of Defensive Driving Course

Course time: 6 to 8 hours

Behavior-based advanced course for problem drivers

Course description:

DDC Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving is recommended most often for drivers with multiple traffic violations and those with poor driving behaviors who need a catalyst for positive change.

Newly revised, this eight-hour, highly interactive course engages students in relearning road rules along with exercises designed to help them understand the connection between choices and consequences and helps them develop a plan to change their driving choices and behaviors. Available in English and Spanish, this course is also offered in a six-hour format to meet the guidelines and content requirements for court and state government traffic safety and ticket diversion programs.

Through small group discussion and active dialogue between students and instructor, this course will influence and challenge participants to change their behind-the-wheel behaviors and attitudes so they choose to drive safely, responsibly, respectfully and lawfully.

What participants will learn:

This course is specifically designed for traffic violators and court referrals, as a diversion program for drivers with excessive violations, or for drivers with poor driving habits.

Participants will be provided with the knowledge, skills and techniques to improve their driving-related choices, and thereby avoid collisions and decrease future violations.

Learners are actively involved in evaluating their driving habits and making decisions and choices about their driving behaviors. Drivers develop personal action plans for practicing good driving behavior.

Participants discuss the citations that brought them to class, test their knowledge of core traffic rules and learn that it is up to them whether they drive poorly or properly and the consequences of their choices – financial, legal, injuries and death.

Course features:

  • Flexible, modularized course structure to accommodate court and state government traffic safety programs, as well as assist organizations with unique driver training needs
  • Practical content addressing defensive driving techniques, traffic safety research and psychology principles to encourage individuals to drive more responsibly
  • Significant emphasis on making a commitment to change one’s driving behaviors to reduce the risk of future traffic violations, vehicle collision, personal injury or death
  • Self-assessment profile to help evaluate individual driving behaviors and styles and recognizing that behaviors are determined by individual choices
  • Participants develop a personal action plan for practicing good driving behavior
  • Emphasis on how distracted driving, alcohol consumption and prescriptive and over-the-counter drugs affect driving
