Driver Rehabilitation

At Century Driving Group we understand how important driving is to you, which is why we are committed to getting you back behind the wheel. Just because you may not be able to drive a vehicle in a conventional way doesn’t mean you can’t drive at all. 

What You Can Expect

  • Evaluation and Planning

    Century Driving Group provides comprehensive evaluations and planning in an effort to help you navigate the ins and outs of accommodating a disabled driver. We'll provide you with our recommendation for vehicle modifications and help establish a plan to get you driving again. 

  • Vehicle Adaptation

    Our driver rehabilitation team will work with you to adapt and modify your vehicle to suite your new driving needs.

  • Rehabilitation Lessons

    We will work with you to learn how to operate your new vehicle. Our goal is to get you back on the road feeling safe, confident, and comfortable.

Give us a call at (616) 392-2435 to schedule a driver rehabilitation consultation.

Defensive Driver

The State of Michigan allows eligible drivers to complete a Basic Driver Improvement Course (BDIC) to avoid points acquired from traffic tickets. If you complete this online defensive driving course within 60 days of your notice from the state of Michigan, your insurance company will not see your recent ticket points as part of your driving record and insurance premiums.

What You Can Expect

  • State Approved

    The Basic Driver Improvement Course teaches defensive driving strategies, Michigan Traffic Laws, and other important driver safety information.

  • 100% Online

    Once you register, you can begin the Basic Driver Improvement Course right away. The registration, the defensive driving course, and the final exam are completely online.

  • Instant Results

    Once you finish the Basic Driver Improvement Course and pass the exam, your completion will be reported to the State of Michigan automatically.

  • Support

    This BDIC program offers around-the-clock course and customer support through the American Safety Council at 877-698-0674.
