MCDD

Driver Safety Courses at the Michigan Center for Decision Driving (MCDD)

Studies show that even the best of drivers have a tendency to overestimate their driving abilities. This could have serious, even deadly, consequences in a dangerous situation that requires highly developed decision-making skills and quick reactions.

To reduce crashes and improve highway safety, it is essential that commercial drivers fully understand proper stopping and skid-control techniques that are unique to the type of vehicle they operate.

At the Michigan Center for Decision Driving (MCDD), professional truck drivers learn decision driving techniques both in the classroom and in actual hands-on activities using the facility's skid course.

MCDD is an all-day course held at:

Eaton Corporation Proving Grounds 19218 B Drive S.
Marshall, MI 49068

The course is offered Monday through Friday,
8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Please arrive no later than 7:45 to be shuttled to the skid pad.

Students are encouraged to bring a lunch. Remote skid pad location does not allow for students to leave and return during lunch break.

The fee for Michigan drivers is $50.
The fee for out-of-state drivers is $200.

Student cancellations made less than 72 hours (3 days) prior to the start of their scheduled training are subject to a cancellation fee of $75. Students who do not cancel out of their class and do not attend will be charged a no-show fee of $175.

The Marshall Proving Grounds are now a "fence-to-fence" tobacco-free location; no smoking or chewing is allowed anywhere on the Eaton property.

MCDD classes fill quickly.
Please call 1-800-325-6733 for availability.
