Defensive Driving

What is Defensive Driving?

A defensive driving course is for motorists who’ve received a traffic infraction or non-criminal moving violation. Defensive driving, also known as traffic school or driver improvement, is used to reduce traffic ticket points as a result of the ticket. The incentive is to have a clean driving record and avoid insurance premium increases that would result from the ticket.

How do I know if I am eligible?

TThe officer or county court where your ticket has been assigned will be able to tell you for sure whether a defensive driving course is an option. However, you may also take defensive driving just to get an insurance reduction. Depending on your insurance company, this could be a discount you qualify for!

For a traffic ticket, many factors can affect whether or not you qualify to take defensive driving for point dismissal†. Those can be:

  • Whether or not this is your first offense
  • Whether or not you've taken traffic school recently
  • The seriousness of the violation

Simply select your state and will provide you with your defensive driving course options
