Defensive Driving

GCSC's Defensive Driving course is provided for members and non-members on-site or at the GCSC Training Facility. Students are taught defensive driving techniques proven to reduce accidents and injuries caused by accident. The course is approved and certified by the Ohio Department of Public Safety – Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

This course is designed for drivers who are already skilled in the basics of handling a vehicle. The objective of this course is to refresh and build on your current driving skills and help you reach a new level of defensive driving. Changing the attitude of the driver is emphasized.

Since this is not a lecture course, participation and contributions throughout are key to its success. By watching the video presentations and applying the skills into daily driving, this will reduce the chance of violating traffic laws and becoming involved in a traffic collision.
