Testimonials

I have taken driving classes before, but I didn't learn very much. This course makes you actually think about your problems and things you can correct; in your driving habits, and in your everyday problems. I thought I would hate this, but I'm very glad I had a chance to take it. You won't, however, see me taking another.

Driver Responsibility

 

Traffic schools serve a purpose in our society but were not meant to deal with problematic repeat offenders. Studies show that common defensive driving courses stay in memory 6-8 weeks. Each state has a group of problem drivers, those who have accumulated enough points to lose their license. Traffic offenders of this type are for the most part selfish, quick-to-anger, self-centered people. Standard defensive driving courses are totally ineffective for them. These drivers basically know how to drive, and have good reaction times; their chief problem is their self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.

ACCI's Driver Responsibility life skills course was specifically designed to deal with problem traffic offenders. The home study approach helps problem drivers make changes in their negative thinking patterns. It combines the best of traffic school curriculum with its evidence-based cognitive restructuring curriculum to produce the first truly effective program for problem drivers.
