If you are found guilty of traffic violations it can affect your driving record by having points added to it by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you obtain too many points your license can be suspended or you will have to take a mandatory operator retraining program.
If you need to have traffic tickets dismissed or to get your car insurance premiums reduced defensive driving courses are an excellent option for you.
If you voluntarily sign up to take a defensive driving course you will learn essential information on becoming a safer driver and how to avoid accidents and future traffic tickets. You may also be eligible for lower insurance rates.
The following information will inform you about Connecticut’s defensive driving courses as well as operator retraining programs.
