Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I can’t take the course before the court deadline?
It is recommended that you do your best to complete the course before the court-appointed deadline. Any requests for extensions must be approved by the judge. This means if you believe you will need extra time, you should plan ahead, so as to allow for the extension approval process. Only one extension can be granted.
Do I have to complete the course in one sitting?
One of the many benefits of taking the defensive driving course with TrafficSchoolToGo.com is that you can start and stop the course as much as you would like. Because the course is entirely online, you can log in and work for as long or as short as you need. The course will save as you go so you can come back multiple times, until the entire course is complete.
I don’t think I’m guilty of the traffic violation. Should I still take the course?
Whether or not you take the defensive driving course is your choice. After receiving a traffic ticket, you have two options: go to court or take the defensive driving course. In Arizona, you are not allowed to do both. Individuals who choose to take the defensive driving course must do so at least one week before their court hearing is scheduled.
I don’t live in Arizona, but I did receive my traffic ticket there. Can I still take the defensive driving course for Arizona?
Yes, you are permitted to attend Arizona defensive driving school if you do not live in Arizona but did receive your ticket in the state.
I’m not sure I’m going to take the course. Can I pay later?
Payment for the Arizona Defensive Driving Course is required at the time of registration. However, individuals who register but do not start the course are eligible for a full refund. Typically, those who request a refund after starting the course will be refunded for the course and diversion fees, but not for state fees.
Are traffic ticket points the only factor that affect my insurance premium?
In fact, a variety of factors are used to determine your insurance premium. These include age, gender, car make, model, year and safety features, geographic location, credit score and driving record. Due to the fact that your driving record can lead to increases in insurance premiums, it is usually advised to make the necessary efforts to remove unwanted points from your license. Taking the defensive driving course with the American Safety Council can help.
Once I’ve completed the course, will my points be automatically removed?
You will be eligible for point removal as soon as you successfully pass the final exam. At that time, and once the relevant court has been notified of your course completion, your points may be removed. Alternatively, you may be required to appear in court with your completion certificate to confirm the point removal. Outcomes vary and are dependent upon each individual’s unique situation.
