DDC-8 is a comprehensive driver improvement program with a basic 8 hour curriculum offering practical knowledge and techniques to avoid crashes, and to choose safe, responsible and lawful driving behaviors.

Join the National Safety Council’s Defensive Driving Course presented by Defensive Driving School. This comprehensive program meets both Level 1 and Level 2 requirements and offers practical knowledge and techniques to avoid crashes, and to choose safe, responsible and lawful driving behaviors.

The Rewards of Driver Improvement

After completing the course, you will receive a certificate of completion for 8 clock hours which, depending on your state, may make you eligible for point reduction or ticket dismissal. Many insurance companies offer a reduction on premiums to graduates (check with your insurance carrier for availability). After you sign up for the class, you’ll also receive our illustrated Participant Guide, with practical exercises and tips you may refer to even after the course is over.

Successful completion of this course may allow you to keep your infraction(s) from being added to your driving record.

Please check with your referring court for eligibility.

Some drivers may qualify for “deferred finding” under RCW 46.63.070 (5) if requested during a mitigation or contested hearing. A deferred finding will not go on your driving record so long as conditions set by the judge are satisfied. These may include payment of costs, committing no other traffic violations over 6-12 months and possibly traffic school attendance or compliance with other traffic related conditions. A person is eligible for a deferred finding only once in a seven year period.
