Professional Driver Improvement Course (PDIC)®

by Canada Safety Council

The PDIC® program is recommended to those who need it for corporate driving improvement. It may also be used as a court-ordered driver re-education. a.k.a. “Traffic School”

It is an indisputable fact that almost every crash involving a motor vehicle is preventable! If drivers had identified the hazards and had taken preventive actions then thousands of collisions would not take place daily.

The course consists of six (6) one-hour sessions in a classroom setting. The Driver’s Notebook contains case studies, driving tips and other useful information, in addition to the course. The course content covers defensive driving techniques, passing, collision prevention, driving conditions, turns, reversing, driver awareness and impairments plus vehicle inspections. PDIC helps professional drivers improve their defensive driving techniques.
