Driving Safety Course


Return to Options

General information

Driving Safety Courses allow defendants to complete a class in exchange for a dismissal of many traffic-related charges.

In addition to completing (and paying for) the course, a defendant will be assessed court costs and an administrative fee. Only certain charges are eligible for this option and you cannot take more than one course in a 12 month period. You must request this option by the initial appearance date stated on your citation.

You can request information regarding your case by emailing the court. The court accepts completion documents by email: [email protected]
