How do I know if I am eligible to take defensive driving class?
You have not attended a defensive driving course for an eligible traffic citation issued within the past 12 months.
Your eligibility to attend a defensive driving class is based on the date of your current violation not on the date you last attended a defensive driving class.
If eligible, you can attend to have only one violation dismissed.
You were cited for a civil traffic moving violation that did not involve a serious injury or fatality.
You must complete this course at least 7 days before your court date.
Your violation must be on the list of eligible violations or see below.
You may take the class in person or online. If you were specifically ordered by a judge to attend the course in person, you must register for a classroom course.
