Maine Driving Dynamics is a Maine-sponsored 5 hour defensive driving course that offers all drivers the opportunity to improve their defensive driving abilities.  The course includes discussion of collision avoidance techniques, safety issues, driver habits and attitudes, and the basic elements that constantly challenge drivers on Maine’s highways.  It is taught by a certified instructor in a format that engages students with lectures, videos, and class discussion/participation. Those completing the course will receive a 3 point credit on their driving record, and students 55 and older can receive an insurance discount from their issuer.  Best of all, we believe students will be safer drivers and leave the class with a new and unique way of looking at the driving experience.
