Why You Should Take a Defensive Driving Course and How Can It Help You.
Updated: May 31, 2019
The Defensive Driving Course (DDC) can help you become a better driver and save you some money, and let's be honest, who doesn't like that. When you take the Defensive Driving Course, you will go over topics such as are traffic law, traffic signs and driver responsibility. Over the 6 hour course you will learn from both a certified DDC instructor and from a couple of videos. During the course you will also be quizzed a couple of times before taking the final exam.
While none of this may sound like a fun time, once you complete the Defensive Driving Course you will feel like a safer, more confident driver. On top of the self benefit of confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, the completion of a Defensive Driving Course can improve your insurance rate, reduce points on your license and even allow you to get your license back after it has been suspended.
If you are taking class for point reduction purposes, you will want to head over to the DMV the day after completing your Defensive Driving Course, unless it's Sunday (DMV is classed on Monday) and get the points reduced. You will be eligible to get up to 7 points taken off your license but make sure this is your best option since the Defensive Driving Course can only be taken for this reason once every 5 years.
Another great way taking a Defensive Driving Course is for car insurance reduction. After completing the Defensive Driving Course, take your certificate of completion to your insurance provider. You will be eligible for a discount up to 10%, for up to 3 years.
