driver safety

I've been asked to do the driver safety course to reduce my traffic points. Which one is better, the online one or should I attend the actual classes?

Hi wileyschulte, and
Which one is better for you? Well if you really need a driver safety course then going to a class would be better. If you just need a quick refresher course use the internet. I did my last safety class online in less then 2 hours. I opened 2 windows in my browser, one to read and the other to answer the questions. Speed cheating.

Driver Safety course

I guess you need it for insurance purposes, I would do the online, the live one is the longest day you will ever live.

You need one that is approved by whoever is asking you to do this, either state or your insurer. They should have a list.

You will probably learn more in the actual classes, but the online ones are convenient if you have the self-discipline to complete them. Either one will meet your objective (removing points) if it is approved.

I personally like the live comedy driving class. You have fun, and you learn. Texas allows the comedy driving course class. Check for your state, or check the class. The instructor or organization giving the classes should be able to tell you if it is accredited.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I don't know about other States, but in Calif. you accumulate points with each ticket you get, the more severe the ticket the more points, if you get to many there are penalties.
