Huntsville Municipal Court is also a training agency for the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Courses. All DDC instructors must be trained in an approved Instructor Development Course registered with the National Safety Council. The goal of the program is to prevent traffic crashes and violations and to reduce fatalities, injuries and costs to society. This is accomplished through providing knowledge and techniques to avoid traffic crashes. Also, to influence and challenge participants to change their behind-the-wheel behaviors and attitudes so that they will choose to drive safely, courteously and responsibly.
You may attend a defensive driving program if you have received a traffic citation or as a volunteer. If you are attending for a traffic citation we determine the level of school you are to attend by your driving record. We offer the DDC-4, DDC-8, Alive at 25 and the Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving. The class fee can range from $25.00 up to $100.00 depending on the level of class you are to attend, in addition to your court cost fee. If you are attending as a volunteer student or senior citizen, the fee for the class will be $13.00.
This is an award-winning program, which has received many nationally recognized awards and accreditations certificates.
