NTSI’s utilizes a scientifically proven method of instruction known as Choice Theory to ensure that drivers accept personal responsibility for their driving behaviors.

Our core focus on how Values + Attitudes = Behaviors™ helps participants develop an awareness of their driving and create a plan of action to adequately change any negative driving behaviors.

As the most established and respected Traffic School in the United States, we have an array of courses that stress personal accountability and are an excellent educational tool for helping offenders learn more about the consequences of their actions, avoid points being assessed on their Motor Vehicle Record and avoid increased insurance rates.

In addition to our Court Diversion course offerings NTSI courses are taken across the United States to allow drivers an opportunity to receive a discount on auto insurance.
