There are many reasons an individual might elect or be required to take the 6-hour Defensive Driving Class:
1. Ticket Dismissal
Many Courts in Georgia will dismiss a ticket for a traffic violation if the offender completes the 6-hour Defensive Driving Program prior to going to Court. If dismissed, there will be no points placed on your driving record and your insurance will not increase.
2. Points Reduction
You may complete the 6-hour Defensive Driving Program once every 5 years to remove up to 7 points from your record to prevent your license from being revoked.
3. License Suspension
If your license has been suspended, you must complete the 6-hour Defensive Driving Program before your license is reinstated.
4. Fine Reduction
The 6-hour Defensive Driving Program may be taken for a 20% reduction of the traffic fine and may result in the court not adding points to your record.
5. Insurance Discounts!
If you have a clean driving record for 3 years, you may take the 6-hour Defensive Driving Program to receive a 10% -15% discount on your auto insurance premium. The insurance discount percentage is determined by your insurance company.
