The Rewards of Driver Improvement
After completing the course, you will receive a certificate of completion for 8 clock hours which, depending on your state, may make you eligible for point reduction or ticket dismissal. Many insurance companies offer a reduction on premiums to graduates (check with your insurance carrier for availability). After you sign up for the class, you’ll also receive our illustrated Participant Guide, with practical exercises and tips you may refer to even after the course is over.
Successful completion of this course may allow you to keep your infraction(s) from being added to your driving record.
Please check with your referring court for eligibility.
Some drivers may qualify for “deferred finding” under RCW 46.63.070 (5) if requested during a mitigation or contested hearing. A deferred finding will not go on your driving record so long as conditions set by the judge are satisfied. These may include payment of costs, committing no other traffic violations over 6-12 months and possibly traffic school attendance or compliance with other traffic related conditions. A person is eligible for a deferred finding only once in a seven year period.
All classes are held on Saturdays from 9am-4:30pm. We encourage you to sign up one week in advance so we can mail you the participant guide, however we can accommodate you if you sign up within a week by providing a pdf of the guide. You will be automatically registered for the next class. If the date and time scheduled does not work for you, please contact us at as soon as possible to reschedule to the desired date.
