  • It's Your Choice
    Driving unsafely is a choice. Driving safely is also a choice. In this section we explore what makes us mad about other drivers, while recognizing that we also might be guilty of those same habits.

4 hours sounds intimidating. I learned a lot of information that I wasn't aware of or had forgotten. I hope new drivers take this course or it becomes mandatory at some point for them to. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from this class. Well-constructed, attention grabbing and easy to understand.             C. Justus
