All IDG classes will either be very affordable or free for full members, and more affordable than any other provider for represented members. Through the Black Car Fund, anyone who works for a member Black Car Company, like Uber, can even be paid to take the TLC-mandated Defensive Driving course when you take the course we provide or through the Black Car Safety Center.
