Defensive Driving Online Mini-Course Modules

Set yourself apart to Contracting Carriers by taking these easy, quick and effective online defensive driving courses available 24/7 — and save a bundle.  We have 9 focused mini-courses each lasting approximately 20-25 minutes in length for well below $10.    We also offer a 45 minute distracted driving course (a real life-saver!) and two comprehensive defensive driving courses.  One focuses on light vehicles and the other on trucks.  Both include four hours of instruction — perfect if you are new to delivery work or want to clean up your record.

More and more Contracting Carriers require proof of ongoing safety training.   Our courses give you certificates of completion to provide to your Contracting Carriers.  Each course presents real life driving scenarios and hazard recognition exercises that will keep you engaged while educating you about safe driving practices.  Plus, a handy “bookmark” feature lets you pause the course and resume later on, allowing you to learn at your own pace.

As professional drivers, you can demonstrate that you embrace safe driving practices and hold yourself to a higher safety standard while driving a motor vehicle for business.  Not to mention, you can’t earn a living if you are badly injured – or worse – in an auto accident.  Most accidents can be prevented by smart, defensive driving on your part.  Just like doctors, lawyers and engineers benefit from continuing education to improve their skills, so can you!!!

The Association has partnered with the National Safety Council to deliver these cutting-edge online courses to our members at deeply discounted rates.  Members with a Contracting Carrier Code (CCC) from a contracting carrier will enjoy even bigger discounts.  If you don’t have a code, ask your primary contracting carrier to contact us to get you one.
