About Driving Dynamics
Driving Dynamics is a leading provider of driver safety training, coaching and fleet risk management services throughout North America. In business for more than 30 years, our behind-the-wheel courses, e-learning, and simulator training and driver risk programs are based on proven learning methodologies and expert instruction.
The company was established in 1987 through the vision of founder Bill Buff, who achieved notable success as a professional race car driver when he realized that the most dangerous part of his day occurred while driving to and from the racetrack. Inspired to impact driver safety he conceived the One Second Advantage™ principle. Rooted in a major automotive safety research study that determined 90 percent of all traffic crashes can be avoided when a driver has one more second to react and knows what to do with it —the One Second Advantage has been, and to this day is the cornerstone philosophy of the training programs offered by Driving Dynamics.
Headquartered in Newark, Delaware, Driving Dynamics was named as a Top-20 Safety & Health Company by Training Industry Inc. in 2017 and 2018. Over the years we have grown our service offerings and expanded our footprint to include into the commercial transportation market. Through our three business lines, we offer solutions for fleet professionals and drivers of all vehicle types.
Many drivers are unprepared for new driver assist systems installed in newer vehicles
"Many fleets today are spending more money on safety technology, but getting poorer results. One key part of the solution is appropriate driver training that teaches drivers to manage and coordinate with the safety technology that’s in the vehicle - so that they are prepared for what the vehicle is going to do." ~ Art Liggio, Driving Dynamics president and CEO
We deliver on our mission every day using proprietary, time tested, principle-based safety education along with risk management analysis and applied techniques. We are committed to delivering the most relevant and effective training programs and services for fleet professionals and driver of all vehicles types.

How Our Training Has Made a Difference
"Good timing for the refresher training. There was a 4 car pile-up in front of me yesterday but I avoided it. ABS works as does look further ahead than just the car in front. I saw that the 1st car was going to rear end the car in front of it and I stopped with plenty of room. It's great that the training makes us engage the ABS many times because it was a non-surprise when I actually needed to use it. " ~Tara P., Account Manager, AkzoNobel
"I was driving on I-4 in downtown Orlando heading to Daytona to work Storm. I was in the left lane only because my GPS was telling me that my exit was going to be to the left. It was raining hard at that point and I was keeping a safe speed under the speed limit when I noticed a tractor-trailer coming up fast behind me. I changed lanes into the middle lane and I started to slide to the right due to the concrete roadway. I let off the pedal and looked and steered in the direction of the roadway I wanted to follow. The truck flew by me at a high rate of speed and I was able to control the car. Thank you for sending me to Driving Dynamics class so I knew what to do in that situation." ~Marc D, Field Operations, Florida Power & Light
"I attended the course offered here in Indianapolis. I want to offer that your team was absolutely superb. I am impressed. They worked together to make the day impactful and fun. I have nearly 20 years here at Elanco and have had over those years many hours in internal and external training, and the hours I had with your team set a high mark for an engaged and energetic experience. I want to especially mention Kathy, who had the classroom portion of the day. She did a great job of making this valuable and impactful with her sharing of stories and humor." ~Doug R, Director, product development Elanco Animal Health
