Your fleet must be safe and responsible when doing your company's work because your business and your employees depend on it. Small business or large corporation, the cost of defensive driving instruction or a few brush-up sessions is minimal compared to the huge accident-related costs associated with lost time, legal liabilities, medical bills, higher insurance premiums and an injured reputation. We can even provide an on-site defensive driving certificate seminar at your facility or campus almost anywhere in the U.S. Contact us and learn how DDA Inc. can begin to customize a program for your sales reps, employees or drivers.

DDA is here to help!!! Just click on the PA Driver's Manual (to the left), and you can take a 25 question practice permit test which is very similar to the PA test.
