Texas Drivers 🥰 Our Defensive Driving Course

The online video class was entertaining as well as informative.

I liked the video clips that were inserted and the unit quizzes were very helpful to take along the way instead of at the very end. I would recommend this course to anyone.

~Tina Lewis

BEST COURSE! I lol'd so many times, and learned a few things too. My questions sent through customer support were answered VERY promptly.

These guys turned a crappy obligation into a wonderful experience!

~A M

Quick and easy! Finished in two days, didn’t seem like I spent 6 hours on it at all. Each unit quiz is super simple! Just watch the videos!!!!

Also it isn’t boring, they make very interesting with some humor! I highly recommend this course to anyone in need!

~Brittney Farley

Website was easy to navigate. I was dreading taking a course but they actually made it kinda fun!

Price was low, and it was great that they offer electronic delivery for procrastinators like myself haha. Overall experience was great :)

~Annette Iroanya

This defensive driving course was excellent, very informative yet funny, entertaining.

Also the six hours went by very quickly due to the format of the online class. I highly recommend this program for defensive driving.

~Brenda Fine

The course was easy to complete and did provide good information.

Above all however, is the customer service. They were extremely helpful and quick to answer at any time. They were honestly pleasant to talk to.

~Jacob Perez

Loved the course, good way to freshen up what you already know; easy to understand and can complete it at our own schedule.

The customer service is awesome, very responsive and accommodating. I do not wish for a ticket again but would recommend the course and the company if you received one. 5 shining stars!

~Harini Ira

This course was fun to take and easy to use! I could log on and off when I wanted.

They used different methods of learning to keep you engaged and broke up the "test" into quizzes after each section so it was not one final exam at the end. It was affordable too! Definitely recommend!

~Gwendolyn Kraus

A very entertaining spin on what would normally be a drag. Had me in the edge of my seat with each video and question. This course really shows the importance of defensive driving and how to save yourself and others in an emergency.

The creators of this course truly care for your well being and just want you to understand the dangers of the road and how to face them. GIVE THEM A TRY IF YOU NEED A COURSE!!!
