Defensive Driving Online vs. in a Classroom

Updated: 10/07/2022
If you’ve found yourself with a traffic ticket, you may have the option of taking a defensive driving course to get the ticket dismissed. A mark on your driving record can affect your monthly insurance premiums for years to come; doing what you can to keep the ticket from your record will save you money (and headaches) over time.

What is a Defensive Driving Course?
A defensive driving course teaches drivers how to anticipate the unexpected and keep themselves safe on the road, despite adverse conditions or actions of other drivers. Defensive driving skills are essential to the safe operation of a motor vehicle.
Whether you are looking to take a defensive driving course to get a traffic ticket dismissed or lower your insurance costs, the knowledge and skills you gain from a defensive driving course are priceless.

Online Vs. Traditional Classroom Setting
There are two options when it comes to taking a defensive driving course: online or in-person classes. While both classes will earn you a certification of completion to present in traffic court, online courses make taking a defensive driving course more convenient.
