What are People saying about DDA?
"Hey thanks for teaching Nicole not just the right way to merge onto the highway, but what to do when things get tricky. Yeah, I would have never thought to teach her that technique, but now I know what you meant when you said driving program vs. defensive driving program...

and by making her a right-of-way expert, her decision-making and confidence are so much better. You guys were great!!  I'll be sure to tell everyone about DDA."
