Defensive Driver Courses are available online or in a classroom. Our partners at Nations Traffic Safety School offer all of the Florida Traffic School courses in their classrooms. You can also attend these courses online and may enroll directly from our web site.
Classroom courses are offer on weekdays and on weekends. Provided in a seminar style format, Defensive Driver School (DDS) courses offer interaction between students and the instructor.
Online traffic school courses are available 24/7. You only need to have an internet connection. While you can enroll into an online course with a cell phone, it is not advisable to take the course on a phone. Tablets, iPads, laptops or a desktop PC will provide you a much better platform.
Florida offers seven Defensive Driving Courses. All In-Person Classroom DDS courses are available through our partners at Nations Traffic Safety School.
The most frequent course taken is the 4-Hour Basic Class as an "Election" to withhold points after receiving a traffic citation. The next is the Mature / Senior Defensive Driver class for Florida Seniors (55 or older) to receive a discount on their auto insurance. The other courses are typically needed as a result of a Court Order from a judge.
