From students who took our Defensive Driving Courses in Rhode Island.
Great! Entertaining! Valuable! I LEARNED A LOT!!!
Have already told several people to take the course. It made me more aware again…and more cautious and courteous.
Excellent teaching and learning experience.
Being a single parent it made it much easier to take this online.
Wow. I really enjoyed the format and I feel as though I learned a lot! GREAT JOB. Thanks for making learning fun!
I really enjoy the course, it will help me to be cautious on the road and watch for everything.
This course was easy, extremely informative and very convenient.
As I was doing this course and going to and from work, I found myself already incorporating the things I was learning.
I appreciated the option of doing this at home. I actually will use some of the de-stressing methods because I do drive aggressively at times. I do believe I’ll be a MUCH better driver as a result of this online defensive driving class.
I feel this course was outstanding. It was very effective and enjoyed all photos and videos.
Excellent method and presentation. I truly enjoyed the material and learned a lot. Great refresher course and will definitely improve my driving.
I loved this course and if need be would absolutely take it again! I will recommend this course to anyone who requires online traffic school!
Great course! Very informative and entertaining!
I’m glad I found your program. This is clearly the one I’d recommend to others.
The course was fun and easy. I was expecting this to be a dreadful 4 hours, but the comedy clips kept me entertained and focused.
Really enjoyed doing it this way, you can do it at your own pace, this beats sitting somewhere for 6 hours.
I appreciated the ability to complete the course over time in the comfort of my home office. It was great to be able to complete as much as I had time for in spurts over a one week period. A few laughs here and there were nice too.
Loved this course. Even though I feel I am a safe driver this course just validated my way of thinking about driving and the road.
I think this course is excellent and the information and the way you engage the viewer is well done.
Good job Improv! I realized I needed these reminders and the bits of humor really helped move it along.
I have tried other online courses and could not get through them. I could through this one in a couple days. Very easy and entertaining!
Although I hate to admit that this is my second interaction with this program, both times I have found it interesting and fun!
Wow… I really did not expect to have as much fun as I did in this course. If you want to take one of these bad boys online, choose this site. You have my word you won’t regret it.
Very user-friendly format, and fun to take. I’ll use some of the jokes myself.
Rhode Island Defensive Driving
More information to help you make the right choice.
If you have committed a traffic offense, you may be required to enroll in a defensive driving program in Rhode Island. This course may also be taken to get an auto insurance discount.
The Community College of Rhode Island is partnered with the Rhode Island DMV and courts to enroll students in traffic school classes.
Your reasoning for taking one of these classes may be that it's required or you are taking it for the discount benefits, but either way you will learn how to become a better driver and lower your chances of a future traffic ticket and/or car accidents.
If you come to find out you aren't able to get a lowered insurance premium, this traffic school class will still help you drive better throughout the rest of your life.
Soon you are going to get a brief introduction to RI defensive driving programs where you will find out what the requirements are, who you need to consult for more information, and what your options are for taking a defensive driving course.
Rhode Island Course Options
A Rhode Island defensive driving course could be:
Court-mandated for receiving a traffic ticket.
An option for you to reduce your car insurance payments.
In your circumstance, it may be possible that you are able to take the course online or in the classroom. Unfortunately, your options are limited when the class is court-ordered, which usually means you can only pick the classroom option.
Mandatory Rhode Island Traffic School
It will depend on the severity and specifics of your violation, but the judge may order that you enroll in a defensive driving course at the Community College of Rhode Island.
If so, information about the course will be given to you along with a deadline for completion.
You will also receive details regarding any other paperwork or fees that you may need.
Don't forget that license suspension is a possibility when dealing with severe traffic violations or many small ones combined.
Rhode Island Auto Insurance Discount
You may qualify for an auto insurance discount if you enroll in a defensive driving class on your own terms.
Usually, insurance providers will only allow teens and seniors to qualify for a discount, but it's worth contacting your insurance agent and double-checking to make sure you don't miss out.
If you aren't able to get the discount and you feel like your car insurance payments are too steep, it might be a good idea to start comparison-shopping for a new company. Many insurance companies will be glad to offer a discount for someone who is taking steps to become a more safe driver.
