SmartDrive U Logo

The key requirement of the SmartDrive U course is engagement.  To obtain a Defensive Driving Certificate,  you must stay engaged in the materials for a total of six hours.  The program is presented in three two-hour lessons to meet that requirement.  Each topic with the lessons uses a timer that will not allow you to advance until the engagement requirement is met.
