Is it secure to send my credit card information over the Internet?
Yes, due to the sensitive nature of credit card transactions, 3D Defensive Driving uses a secure site for your credit card information.
If you can't get on the website's home page or log in page, run this test to see if the website is down, or your computer is unable to connect to it for some other reason - http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/comedysafedriver.com.html
If the site is UP but you can't access the page, try one of the below solutions:
#1 Browser Related Problems
Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.) Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page.
#2 Fix DNS Problems
A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.
Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter).
