About NTSI


Jeffrey M. Chase, Ph.D, pioneered the concept of a defensive driving program for citation dismissal. Founded in 1974, the National Traffic Safety Institute (NTSI) was the first program of its kind; today, NTSI remains the largest and most innovative for-profit provider of collision prevention and driver safety programs in the United States. NTSI has been the recognized leader in traffic safety education nationally. Our innovative approach to driving safety stresses personal accountability as participants in our courses explore an interactive curriculum based upon proven behavioral modification principles. We believe drivers understand the importance of following safety standards and stress personal choice as a means of effecting a positive change in driving behavior. Our driving courses are geared toward individuals who are in need of court diversion, insurance and point reduction, or for employer requirement.


We created our Fleet Division with the goal of helping companies across the nation train their employees to be safer drivers. We have an array of programs for all vehicle and fleet sizes, and many of our programs can be customized to meet specific needs. Our clients include businesses big and small; local and international; Fortune 500 companies; non-profit organizations; and state, county, and city authorities. Our clients praise our work to help them reduce their fleets’ collision and personal injury rates, and our students praise our curricula for helping them learn effectively.
