Who Should Take This Course?
This course is designed for drivers seeking to dismiss an Arizona traffic ticket or satisfy a court order to complete a defensive driving program. Drivers may also qualify for an auto insurance discount if they take the course voluntarily.
In addition to Arizona residents, out-of-state drivers who receive a ticket in Arizona can take our online defensive driving course to keep points off their record and avoid an increase to their insurance rate.
To dismiss a traffic ticket and avoid the point penalty, your ticket must be on the Arizona Supreme Court's list of eligible violations. The list includes most common citations not involving a serious injury or death. You can take a defensive driving course to dismiss only one eligible violation.
Eligibility requirements for the Arizona defensive driving program include:
- You must not have attended a defensive driving course for a traffic citation in the last 12 months
- Your violation must be on the list of eligible violations
- You must complete the course no later than seven days prior to your court date
Commercial driver license (CDL) holders cannot take this course for ticket dismissal purposes. And some Arizona courts have specific requirements for juveniles seeking to dismiss a ticket. If you are under 18, you may need to appear in court and get the judge's permission before you enroll in the course.
The Arizona Online Defensive Driving course does not satisfy state requirements for Traffic Survival School. The Traffic Survival School program is designed for drivers with more serious violations or an excessive number of points on their record.
Arizona Point Prevention
This course is a state-approved Defensive Driving Diversion Program that allows you to dismiss a traffic ticket and prevent points for one eligible citation from being added to your driving record. You can complete the course once every 12 months for point prevention. The 12-month period is based on violation dates and not the dates of course completion.

Your provider may also offer a discounted rate on your insurance premium if you take the course voluntarily to improve your driving skills. Please contact your insurance provider to find out if it offers a defensive driving discount and the steps you need to take to qualify.
