North Dakota Safety Council to host defensive driving course

The North Dakota Safety Council is hosting the defensive driving course "Alive at 25."

This young driver intervention program zeroes in on drivers between the ages of 14 and 25; the group most likely to be involved in fatal collisions. The highly interactive four-hour program teaches young drivers how to take control of situations by taking responsibility for their own driving behavior.

Vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of death for people ages 14-24. The National Safety Council, a leader in driver improvement training for more than 40 years, developed DDC-Alive at 25 specifically to target drivers in this age group.

By completing a NDSC Alive at 25-Defensive Driving Course, participants are eligible for an insurance discount and three-point reduction on your driving record.

The class will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 25, at the Skills & Tech Center, 1305 19th Ave N, Fargo.

Prepayment and registration is required, and can be accomplished by logging on to and clicking on the "Alive at 25" icon.
