Michigan Driver Improvement Course

More information to help you make the right choice.

In Michigan the Department of State allows some drivers who have received minor traffic tickets to take a Basic Driver Improvement Course (BDIC). Also known as a defensive driving course, the BDIC has the following benefits:

  • Driving points from the citation may be waived.

  • If the DMV has made the course a requirement, you satisfy it.

  • Car insurance rates may not be raised, if your insurance company sees that you are a responsible driver.

  • If you complete a driver improvement traffic school, you may be eligible for an insurance premium discount.

  • The refresher gives you a good chance to become a better driver - reducing traffic violations and preventing accidents.

This page shows Michigan traffic schools, options for course completion, and what to do with your Michigan Defensive Driving certificate when you pass the course/school.

Michigan Driver Improvement Traffic School

Taking a defensive driving course may enable you to:

  • Get your traffic ticket dismissed.

  • Prevent your driver's license from being suspended.

  • Earn a discount on your vehicle insurance premiums.

You can take traffic school either online or in person. Michigan Defensive Driving courses online enable you to study on your own time and at your own speed.

Michigan Traffic Ticket Dismissal

The Michigan Department of State's (DOS) office will let you know if you are eligible to dismiss your traffic ticket by taking a defensive driving course. These are the general qualifications they look for:

  • Your driving record shows only two points or less.

  • You hold a valid driver's license that is non-commercial.

  • The ticket you received counts 3 points or less and is for a non-criminal offense such as tailgating, running a traffic light/stop sign, or speeding.

If you take the driver improvement program you must complete it within 60 days. The course provider will alert the Michigan DOS that you have met their completion requirements.

For those not eligible to dismiss their ticket via the basic driver improvement course, your driving record will reflect the increase in points, which may result in suspension of your driver's license if you have too many points.

Michigan Auto Insurance Discount

Taking Michigan Defensive Driving traffic school voluntarily will most likely set you up for a decrease in insurance premiums. It shows you as a serious safe driver, who may qualify for a discount, regardless of age. For more information, contact your auto insurance company.

Defensive Driving Course Details

The topics covered in a standard defensive driving course in Michigan are as follows:

  • Basic driving and safety techniques.
