Learn techniques used by professional drivers – techniques that could save your life.

Have you accumulated penalty points? Get up to four points credited when you complete the Defensive Driving course. You may also qualify for an insurance discount so be sure to check with your provider. Learn life-saving strategies including analyzing accidents and causes; avoiding the head-on crash; safe superhighway driving; the timed-interval following distance; effects of drinking and driving; and pedestrian accidents. 

 

Drivers who have accumulated penalty points against their records can have up to four points removed upon successful completion of this National Safety Council certified course. Depending on your insurance carrier, a discounted insurance rate may be available. You must register in advance and be on time. As a reminder, any person who drives a motor vehicle when his or her license is canceled, suspended or revoked is in violation of South Carolina Statute 56-1-460 and is subject to arrest; this includes driving to and from TTC campuses. Before enrolling, verify you have points on your driving record by going to www.scdmvonline.com for the credited points to be applied. Note: This is not a course for ADSAP substance violations. Book included

 

All courses meet in person at Trident Technical College Thornley Campus located at 7000 Rivers Ave., North Charleston, SC 29406.
