The 8 hour 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 at our Hampton Roads driving school location 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.
