DDC-PC is based on the same content as the National Safety Council's eight-hour, instructor-led Defensive Driving Course, DDC, the most widely used driver safety program in the world. In 1964, the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course was the first driver improvement program in the nation. Since that time, the Defensive Driving Course has been taught to more than 45 million drivers in the U.S., in Canada, and in other countries worldwide. From the convenience of their computers, DDC-PC students will analyze real driving situations, spot the hazards, and identify the correct defenses.
