History of National Driver Training


NDT Was Started

In 1995, National Driver Training was born out of the realization that teens account for far too many accidents. When it came to understanding why, there was a huge component missing - parent involvement. This began the idea of more in-car driving and ultimately the idea of Graduated Driver Licensing.

First Legislation was Passed

In 1996 National Driver Training helped bring about the first legislation that incorporated parents into the training process with SB 64 in Texas. As experts in the field of driver education, NDT representatives provided testimony that would shape new driving laws. These laws became the blueprint for many states. National Driver Training assisted in legislation in Colorado, California, Oklahoma, Virginia, New Mexico and Oregon.
