Your local court will be able to tell you the deadline to complete your course and exactly which steps you should take once you complete and pass the course.

If you have points that have already been added to your record for any ticket or violation THEY CANNOT BE REMOVED. The online or classroom classes that are available will only be able to dismiss traffic violations.
Points will be removed automatically after two years for any traffic violations.

Completing Your Defensive Driving Class
Courts usually give you a time limit to complete a defensive driving course if you are taking it to dismiss a ticket. So make sure you find out the deadline. If you have signed up voluntarily, without being required by the judge than you will not have a time limit set by the courts. You will be able to complete the course per the instructor’s time limit.
You will also need to pass a final test at the end of the course to get credit. You will need proof of passing the course to provide to the court as well as your completion certificate.
