Take the Course to Remove Points from Your Record
You may attend a driver improvement clinic once every two years to reduce the accumulated demerit point total on your driving record. Successful completion of this clinic will remove up to 5 points from your record.
…to Satisfy a DMV Requirement
If you were ordered by the Virginia DMV to attend a driver improvement clinic, you will have 90 days to finish the program. Successful completion of the program will remove up to 5 demerit points from your driving record. The number of points removed will be determined by the DMV, and the credits earned here will be applied to the demerit points from your chronologically earliest offense.
…to Satisfy a Court Requirement
If you were ordered by a judge to attend a driver improvement clinic, check with your court to verify that it will accept an online course. It is your responsibility to determine if your court accepts this computer-based driver improvement course to satisfy a court-required driver improvement course. It is also your responsibility to turn in your completion certificate to the court prior to your assigned due date. The number of points removed from your record, if any, are determined by the DMV. Students must submit the court's written authorization for point reduction before any points will be awarded.
…to Obtain an Insurance Discount
Insurance carriers may offer discounts to policyholders under the age of 55 who successfully complete a DMV-approved driver improvement clinic. Be sure to confirm with your agent whether your insurance company offers this benefit.
…to Learn Great Safe-Driving Tips
Of course, if your goal is simply to become a safer, more responsible driver, we're always here to help you with that, too!
Note: Students who qualify (not Court- or DMV-ordered) may elect to use the course for safe driving points OR for an insurance discount, but not both.
