The online 4 Hour Basic Driver Improvement course (BDI class) is the most common traffic school taken by drivers in Florida who have received a traffic ticket.  Often taken as an "Elective" to keep points off your record and to receive an 18% discount on your fine, the 4 Hour Defensive Driving School (DDS) online course is also for individuals who:

  • Were Court Order to complete a 4 Hour DDS / DDC traffic school course.
  • Satisfy a DMV order under F.S. 322.0261(4) (Running a Red Light, Passing a Stopped School Bus, Racing on a Highway (Participant or Spectator), or Reckless Driving).
  • Required to attend a Florida 4 Hour TCAC class (Traffic Collision Avoidance Course).

Our 4 Hour driving course is a Florida DMV Certified Driver Improvement course.  Your Completion Certificate is accepted in all 67 Florida Counties.  If you have a CDL, you can only take this driving course if it is Court Ordered or you received a DHSMV Notice.  (See the CDL Notice).
