Take the Course to…

Remove Points from Your Record

You may attend a driver improvement clinic once every two (2) years to reduce an accumulated demerit point total on your driving record. Successful completion of this clinic will remove up to five (5) points from your record.

Satisfy a DMV Requirement

If you were ordered by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (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 five (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.

Satisfy a Court Requirement

If you were ordered by a judge to attend a driver improvement clinic, verify with your court 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 court-required attendance. It is also your responsibility to turn in your Certificate of Completion 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 point reduction will be awarded.

Obtain an Insurance Discount

Insurance carriers may offer discounts to policyholders under the age of 55 who successfully complete a DMV-licensed driver improvement clinic. Be sure to confirm with your agent whether your insurance provider offers this benefit.
