  • Wonderful course! I will pass this along to my family, friends and coworkers. Very user-friendly as well. Wish I had this the last two times I killed a Saturday sitting in the basement of the library taking a defensive driving course!
    testimonial star ratings
    Stephanie L., VA
  • This course was both interesting and engaging. Even though I feel that I am a relatively safe driver, I found going over the many rules helpful. Driving is an important responsibility and it is important that all drivers take it seriously, and do not take anything for granted.
    testimonial star ratings
    Jim S., VA
  • It was surprising well done and informative. I actually felt like it made it into a learning experience and something that made up for the disappointment of having to pay for a ticket.
    testimonial star ratings
    Jeffrey R., VA
  • Very easy to use and to understand. I feel like a better and smarter driver after the course.
    testimonial star ratings
    Ernest T., VA
  • I appreciate the addition of humor into this course. It definitely made it more palatable, and I even think I got more out of it. Laughter makes you pay attention – you can’t help it.
    testimonial star ratings
    Selene C., VA
  • This is the best course I’ve ever taken! I actually have learned different things, and it didn’t feel force fed.
    testimonial star ratings
    Timothy N., VA
  • I love the flexibility! For a busy adult, it’s hard to dedicate 8 straight hours on a weekend for taking a classroom course (including commute). Besides, relaxing in the weekend reduces stress from the previous work week, thus making us mentally BETTER drivers. Flexibility of this course definitely encourages this. Great Job!
    testimonial star ratings
    Chen S., VA
  • The manner of presentation drove home the important points and being able to do it on my time was important to me.
    testimonial star ratings
    Lisa S., VA
  • Using my smartphone I can take traffic school anywhere at any time. The comedy breaks and quizzes are great, just the right amount of learning and fun. This is much better than going somewhere to take traffic school.

  • Although I hate to admit that this is my second interaction with this program, both times I have found it interesting and fun!

People also decide to take a defensive driving course for the following reasons:

With the option of taking in a class setting or online you have the ability to either complete the class in one setting taught by a qualified instructor. Or if taken online you can have the luxury of taking it at your own convenience and taking breaks as needed. Most people choose to take it online; the only time it has to be taken in a classroom is if the driver is under 20 years old.

Details for the Virginia Driving Course

Traffic schools in Virginia are taught in three separate chapters. They will teach you safe driving as well as how to be a responsible and defensive driver.

Each chapter has only one subject and covers issues such as:

  • How to prevent a car crash.
  • Extensive costs of traffic accidents.
  • What causes most traffic accidents?
  • Highway environmental issues, regulations and laws.

There are multiple reasons to take a defensive driving course in Virginia:

  • Lower car insurance.
  • Have a traffic ticket dismissed.
  • Fulfill a court requirement for traffic ticket.
  • Improve your driving.
  • Earn points for safe driving.

Defensive Driving Classes Can Dismiss Tickets

If you’ve got pulled over in Virginia and received a ticket you may be able to get it dismissed as well as avoid points added to your record if:

  • Your Virginia Driver’s License is actually valid.
  • You were not driving a commercial vehicle when you received the ticket.

What is required before I can start the course?

The DMV requires that Driver Improvement Clinics (that's us) determine if the student (that's you) has selected the correct course and whether the court is allowing them to receive safe driving points or not. In order to do this, we need to see:

  • Proper identification (driver license or government-issued identification
  • The court document allowing or requiring attendance in a driver improvement clinic.

You can submit this information to us during the registration process. Your eligibility to complete the course should be verified the same day you submit your documents.

If you enter your date of birth incorrectly, your completion information will not be posted to your driving record, therefore; if you are DMV directed, your clinic requirement will not be satisfied.
