Defensive Driving

What is Defensive Driving, aka Driver Improvement or Traffic ​School?

Defensive Driving is a 6-hour program that Allied Learning Center offers to people who need point reductions, insurance savings, or a court-ordered class. It can help you become a better driver and focuses on good driving habits. It is not a behind-the-wheel class.

​​Why take Defensive Driving, otherwise known as Driver Improvement or traffic school?

  • If you take this class before your court date, many courts in the state of Georgia will dismiss a ticket for a traffic violation. If dismissed, there will be no points placed on your driving record and your insurance will not increase.
  • Twenty percent reduction in the traffic fine, possibly resulting in fewer points being added to your record.
  • To remove up to seven points from your record. This can be done every five years.
  • ​​If you are under the age of 21 are sited for 1 or more tickets that accumulate 4 or more points on your license in a 12 month period, you must take this class for reinstatement of your license.​
  • If your license has been suspended, you must complete this class before your license is reinstated.
  • If you have a clean driving record for 3 years, you may take this class to receive up to a 10% discount on your auto insurance premium. The insurance discount percentage is determined by your insurance company and does expire after 3 years.​

What’s the Cost for the Defensive Driving Class?

  • If it is for insurance ONLY and you have had absolutely no citations within the last three years, DDS will allow us charge $35.
  • For ALL OTHER reasons, the cost of the class is $95 for the 6-hour course. The six hours are broken up two 3-hour sessions, scheduled to be completed in one or two days.
  • Please call us to reserve your spot. We can take payment for the class over the phone, online, or in person.​
