What’s it take?

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

We often get the question, what’s the process for taking either a defensive driving or traffic school course for ticket dismissal and or point reduction.   Really, the process is quite simple.   You must have permission from the court, more specifically the judge, to take a defensive driving course or traffic school for purposes of ticket dismissal or point reduction.

A number of states throughout the country have specific legislation which mandate the defensive driving course or traffic school and the judges comply with the legislation.   The laws vary from state to state, but as a general rule of thumb, get the courts permission first before you take a defensive driving course or approved traffic school.

Further, judges might actually encourage a defensive driving course for traffic or speeding tickets in their jurisdiction even if the state does not have formal legislation in place.   DefensiveDriving.com’s defensive driving course is a required course in a certain jurisdiction in Montana, even though the state does not have a formal mandate related to driver safety courses.

Defensive driving, or driver safety is known by different names in different states, but clearly, we at DefensiveDriving.com know what most people and judges for that matter, refer to it as.

Also, you do not necessarily need to take a driver safety course just for ticket dismissal.  Check with your insurance agent, it may qualify you for discounts for your auto insurance.

So the rule of thumb… check with the judge and agent first, then proceed to DefensiveDriving.com.
