Alive at 25 Defensive Driving
Alive at 25 is a highly interactive defensive driving course developed by the National Safety Council. It has been proven to help teens and young adults under the age of 25 take greater responsibility for their driving by focusing on the choices they make while driving, and their behavior, judgment and decision making. It discusses techniques to cope with peer pressure, passengers, distractions, cell phones and driving hazards. This class is used in many states by schools for parking permits, insurance companies for driver discounts, courts for first infractions and employers to address their younger employees’ decisions and habits behind the wheel.
More than 6500 teens that attended Alive at 25 had their driving records, citations, crashes and DUI arrests evaluated before and after taking the class by the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute in North Dakota. The outcomes on the present evaluation found significant and worthwhile before and after effects which can be attributed to the program. In addition, the study stated that “when compared to driving behavior in the year before taking the class, there is a significant reduction in crashes, citations and DUI arrests“.
Some insurance companies will give up to a 15 percent discount upon completion of the class. This course meets Maryland MVA requirements for those that are required to attend a Driver Improvement Course. Attendees must be on time and should bring MVA paperwork with them if assigned by Court to take a DIP course. Certificates will be mailed upon completion of the course.
