What Is a Defensive Driving Class?
Defensive Driving class is not the same as Driver Training class, which confuses some people.
Likewise, Defensive Driving class is not the same as a DUI class.
Defensive Driving class is a supplemental course that gives you survival knowledge while drive and the mentality of what it means to be a good driver.
This course is good for lowering your automotive insurance rates and reducing points off your driver's license with the state.
Before you take this course to lower your insurance rates, please check with your insurance provider first.
The reason is that you must be qualified according to their policy.
Sometimes the court system will mandate that you take a Defensive Driving course depending on the severity of a traffic violation.
In fact, some companies require their employees or staff to take a Defensive Driving course for a variety of reasons.
If you have a serious traffic violation that does not involve drugs or alcohol, it is usually recommended to attend this course before being court ordered for potential leniency by a judge.
Regardless, the knowledge gained can help save your life as well as the life of others.
In this world, there are no reset buttons.
In Georgia, this is a 6 hour training course to begin your compliance as you work to regain your driving privileges and demonstrate responsible behaviors to the court.

Please be careful when looking elsewhere.
You see there are A LOT of scammers offering Defensive Driving courses and their prices are usually around $50.
Should you see any price that low, let that be a red flag to stay away.
You want a state wide certified school like WRR Defensive Driving and DUI Program.
The 'schools' you find that are offering courses for cheap are not state wide certified.
They may be certified in a select court hundreds of miles away from you.
If you see a phrase on their website that says something similar to "in select courts", stay away.
If you call them and ask if they are state wide certified and they say no, stay away.
You will end up wasting your money and having to pay $95 on top of what you spent because their certificates are not authorized by DDS (Department of Driver Services).
If you take such a certificate to DDS, you will be denied.

Are Online Defensive Driving Classes Approved by The State?
Yes, online Defensive Driving classes are approved by the state of Georgia for the schools they have state-certified.
Our certification number is #959.
Here we will discuss the confusion surrounding the approval of online classes by the state.
Respectfully, there are a handful of government officials including non-government officials that have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.
The information that they are telling you about online classes does not pertain to state certified schools, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even worse, this is the state department's fault for not clarifying.
The state department NEVER clarified to the public what they actually meant by 'online schools' or 'online certificates' not being approved.
To be completely honest, they do not care to clarify this because it takes a lot of effort for them to keep every page of their website up-to-date.
It's the government and we all know how tremendously slow they can be about the simplest of tasks.
Any school certified by the state department is an authorized vendor that is recognized by every court within the state.
Traditionally, schools such as ours only performed in-person classes.
Not long after, discount-scam-like schools were popping up 'online'.
These are schools that are not certified by the state department and their certificates can only be accepted in 'select courts'...
Do you see where we're going with this?
Yes, the state department lumped all of these unapproved schools as 'online schools' because all of their approved schools were brick-and-mortars with in-person classes.
This is why nearly every single discount site you find regarding Defensive Driving class is essentially a scam.
Their education may be fine, but they are not approved by the state nor are they recognized by every court.
Discount Defensive Driving sites that say, "Approved in select courts." is your cue to stay away.
All that you will gain from continuing with them is a certificate that cannot be applied to your driving profile with the state.
It works well perhaps with your insurance provider, but it has absolutely no value in most courts.
More importantly, it certainly has no value with your DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) or DDS (Department of Driver Services).
Our school is a state certified school recognized by every court in the state of Georgia.
In fact, some states listed below also accept certificates from Georgia.
