The 8hour Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is licensed by the Virginia DMV and the curriculum is the National Safety Council (NSC) Defensive Driving Course, which created the first defensive driving course in 1964 and has been the leader in driver safety training ever since.

Our expert instructors discuss a wide variety of subjects, including effective defensive driving techniques, distracted driving, impaired driving, aggressive driving, traffic rules, police law enforcement, traffic court preparation & tips and DMV guidelines. All of our instructors have many years of driving instruction experience and some of our instructors have numerous years of law enforcement/police officer experience.

Driver Improvement courses do not have to be boring, but rather enjoyable and informative at the same time. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned driver, you will find our DIP class to be educational and eye opening.
