Reasons to take a Defensive Driving Class in Atlanta:
Depending on the seriousness of the citation, many courts in Georgia will require you to attend a Defensive Driving Program. A certificate of completion will be issued to the student once he or she has completed the program. The certificate should be taken to and turned into the court on the student’s next appearance.
Possible Ticket Dismissal
Under some circumstances, the court may dismiss a student’s ticket after the student has completed a State approved Defensive Driving Program. It is important to check with the judge or your attorney to verify this arrangement.
Drivers who have accumulated 15 or more points on their driving record within a two year period may have their license suspended by the court. Completing a state approved Defensive Driving Program is part of the process of restoring driving privileges.
Under 18 Suspension
Drivers under the age of 18 will have their license suspended for 6 months if they receive citations resulting in 4 or more points being added to their driving record. Completion of the state approved 6 hour Defensive Driving Program is required for the restoration of the student’s driving privileges.
Under 21 Suspension
Drivers under the age of 21 may have their license suspended for six months if they receive just one ticket that results in 4 or more points being added to their driving record. The student must complete the 6 hour Defensive Driving Program to have his or her driving privileges restored.
Drivers with good driving records may be eligible for a 10% discount on their auto insurance premiums from certain insurance carriers for completing the Defensive Driving Program. You should check with your insurance carrier to make sure you are eligible for this discount.
If you have received a citation, completion of the Defensive Driving Program can result in a reduced fine and/or no points being added to the driver’s record. All fine and point reductions are at the court’s discretion.
