What are People saying about DDA?
 
"Hey thanks for teaching Nicole not just the right way to merge onto the highway, but what to do when things get tricky. Yeah, I would have never thought to teach her that technique, but now I know what you meant when you said driving program vs. defensive driving program...



and by making her a right-of-way expert, her decision-making and confidence are so much better. You guys were great!!  I'll be sure to tell everyone about DDA."

The DDA Mission Statement / Philosophy:
   

At the Defensive Driving Academy we aim to continually bridge the gaps between teaching, coaching, and retraining drivers at every level through the following principle:

Defensive driving instruction is not only about teaching vehicle control-ability, but is certainly about highly trained motivational DDA Coaches successfully communicating simple "expect the unexpected" or "surprises are coming" concepts and techniques that will reduce crash risk via one-on-one weakness recognition and "excellence requires a coach" fashioned driving behavior modification.
