Defensive Driving Course® - Canada Safety Council (DDC-6)

The DDC-6 program is also recommended for those who must attend court ordered driver re-education. a.k.a. "Traffic School".

The definition of Defensive Driving is: "Driving to prevent all types of traffic collisions despite the action of others around you."

The three part collision prevention formula:

  1. Recognize the Hazard
  2. Understand the Defense
  3. Act in Time
