Understanding the Defensive Driving Course

Before learning more about the benefits of taking a defensive driving course, it’s good to first learn what a defensive driving course is. One of the first things you should know is that a defensive driving course benefits drivers of all ages and driving abilities. Even if you’ve been driving for 30 years, you can still learn a few new things by enrolling in the Ticket School course.

While enrolled in the class, you’ll learn about:

  • Traffic crash statistics
  • The dangers of drinking while driving or using drugs while driving
  • Crash dynamics, which relate to how speed, impact and vehicle size affect collisions
  • Auto safety equipment
  • Techniques for crash prevention
  • State traffic laws
  • Additional driving dangers, such as driving while fatigued, angry or stressed

Dismiss a Traffic Ticket

If you ever receive a ticket, a certified defensive driving course (a.k.a. driver safety course) may be just what you need to have it dismissed. Ticket School has a state-approved program, and you can keep that ticket from showing up on your driving record by enrolling in the defensive driving course. While you can always simply pay your ticket, you’ll still accumulate points on your driving record. Should you happen to get another ticket in the future, there’s a chance you will have to pay DPS surcharges in addition to paying more on your future insurance rates. Do yourself and your finances a favor and go with with the less expensive and more educational alternative.

Get a Discount on Your Auto Insurance

Looking for ways to lower your auto insurance premiums? Consider learning more about defensive driving. A majority of auto insurance providers offer discounts to policyholders who complete a state-accredited driving safety course. Specifically, you can save as much as ten percent on your auto insurance premiums for the next three years. It’s best that you check with your insurance agent for the most up-to-date details on how much you can save before enrolling.

To make the course even more convenient, there’s no final exam for you to worry about. The way the course works is that you’ll take brief quizzes at the completion at each unit.
