National Safety Council Compliant Defensive Driving Course

NSC Compliant Course Details


The National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving program offers practical strategies to reduce collision-related injuries and fatalities. It addresses the importance of attitude in preventing crashes, and reinforces good driving skills. Most importantly, DDC shows students the consequences of the choices they make behind the wheel, and puts defensive driving in a personal context. No other driver training program has a higher rate of success in reducing the severity and frequency of collisions for its participants than the National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course. Study after study has shown that drivers who participate in the Defensive Driving Course average fewer collisions and fewer driving arrests than drivers who do not take the course. Offered locally through Pakistan National Institute of Defensive Driving (PNIDD), this course has set the standard in the industry for over 40 years, and continues to improve driver behaviours.
