    Worth the extra time and knowledge

    The last time I took defensive was back in 98, and in a classroom. I really enjoyed the ability to do this online, and being in my home with little to no distractions. The course was well put together, and although seemingly simplistic in design it was very informative. I will defiantly make it a point to return back in three years for the refresher course. I will also make it a point to share this to all my friends and family, and help spread the word. Thanks again

    Helpful for new drivers

    This was my first time taking this course and it was helpful as a new driver.


    easy and direct to the point

    Glad I took the course

    I don't test well, so the format of this course was very helpful.


    easy to understand
