Defensive Driving Classes

OVERVIEW

Defensive Driving School

Defensive driving skills can literally save your life. Before you’re ever in such a dangerous situation, though, they can mask your tickets and reduce insurance costs. At 911 Driving School, we hire only the very best police officers and first responders to ensure you get the most effective education in defensive driving possible.

When we say defensive driving, we’re talking about more than mastering some basic skills and memorizing a few rules and guidelines. These courses are designed specifically to help minimize the risks of collisions on the road. When participating in these classes, you’ll start to develop your ability to anticipate and avoid dangerous situations.

It’s true that most drivers who attend a defensive driving course are required to be there because of a traffic infraction or to reduce insurance costs. Even though you may have to be there, it doesn’t mean it has to be boring.

At 911 Driving School, we offer a program that will help you achieve your defensive driving certification without feeling like you’ve been sent to jail for the day. These classes are different from our regular adult and teen driving classes because they’re tailored specifically to help you develop the skills and knowledge to stay safe on the road.

Defensive driving graduates will:

  • Improve their driving knowledge
  • Increase their understanding of local traffic laws
  • Be taught by 911 driving school instructors(who are also police officers)
  • Learn through multi-media, interactive presentations
  • Participate in a fun learning environment in a state-of-the-art classroom
  • Learn the latest safe driving techniques and strategies
  • Learn how conditions and circumstances affect people, vehicles and roads

In other words, you will learn how to defend yourself from collisions caused by poor weather, bad road conditions, unsafe drivers, and many more potential hazards on the road.

It’s easy to say that defensive driving is about respecting other drivers, staying alert, and being aware. We want to make these behaviors second nature while you’re behind the wheel, which is why we hire teachers who have first-hand knowledge of what happens when drivers don’t drive defensively.

Reasons to Attend Defensive Driving Courses

Traffic safety school may be ordered by District/Municipal Courts as a diversion program. Once you have successfully completed 911 Driving School’s Defensive Driving Class, you may be allowed to keep a traffic infraction from being added to your driving record.

Be sure to first check with your referring court prior to taking the course for your eligibility.

There are also cases where drivers may qualify for a “deferred finding” if it is requested during a mitigation or during a contested hearing. In order for a deferred finding to not appear on your driving record, the judge may set one or more conditions, including:

  • No additional traffic violations over 6 to 12 months.
  • Attend a traffic school.
  • Compliance with other traffic related conditions.
  • Some states may allow a deferred finding only once every 7 years.

Even though 911 Driving School is the most respected traffic school in the country, it is always the responsibility of the student to ensure court/insurance acceptance before taking any traffic safety course for ticket dismissal, fine/point reduction or insurance cost reduction.
