LEARN TO TEACH DEFENSIVE DRIVING - DDC 4, (6th edition)

Every day, almost 120 people die in motor vehicle accidents and approximately 2.3 million people are seriously injured every year. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in young adults between the ages of 16 and 24.

About DDC 4

DDC 4, an instructor-led classroom course, offers the greatest flexibility for organizations who would like to customize session blocks. The multimedia production creatively integrates the 4-hour classroom presentation with technical content, videos, knowledge checks, skills and technique reviews, 2-D animation and a “Guide.” This course will motivate participants to change their behind-the-wheel behaviors and attitudes. It will give your students key understanding, skills and techniques to avoid collisions and reduce future violations. The result is a more responsible driver who grasps best practices to prevent injury and death while operating a motor vehicle.

  • Thorough coverage of DDC 4 6th edition course content and instructional materials, including the 6 additional 10-miunute lessons, multi-media presentation, group activities and case studies
