Defensive Driving

Tri-County Community College is the certified National Safety Council Public Sub-Agency serving Cherokee, Clay, and Graham counties for the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina. The core defensive driving class (DDC-4) offered by TCCC is a four-hour National Safety Council-approved class. The DDC-4 focuses upon attitudes and actions vital to driving safely and defensively, as well as avoiding collisions and traffic citations. In cooperation with the District Attorney of the 30th Judicial District, successful completion of this class may prevent assessment of insurance points or insurance premium surcharges on your insurance policy and/or points on your North Carolina driver’s license. To receive the benefit of this program, you must complete the 4-hour Defensive Driving Course at least five working days before your final court date.

Students must pre-register and pre-pay, since walk-ins will not be accepted for any reason. Registration should be in person at the college at least two days before the class begins. The registration fee can be paid only with cash, money orders, or certified bank checks. This is a self-supporting class, so there are no fee exemptions.

Students under age 18 will need to fill out an additional form that requires parental permission. One final note, the National Safety Council is very strict that latecomers not be admitted into class, regardless of the reason, so any pre-paid student who arrives late will not only miss the class, but also forfeit their registration fees.
