What do I need before I can take defensive driving?

Before you schedule your class for ticket dismissal, you must ask for and receive permission from the court to take the class. Almost everyone is approved, but you have to receive confirmation before you take the class, or they may not dismiss your ticket. 

Some courts allow an online approval, and some courts require you to appear in court. That information is usually on the back of your ticket.

May I take the class to dismiss two tickets?

No. If you are under 25 years of age you will have to take defensive driving for each ticket, generally. Other than that, you are allowed to dismiss one ticket a calendar year. 

However, you should still ask because some courts will, in fact, let you take the class to dismiss the ticket even if you have already taken the class that year.

How quickly will I get my certificate?

Certificates are generally processed and put in the mail two (2) business days after class. They are mailed out of San Antonio and most mail generally takes 1-2 days after that. 

If you have put this off until the last minute, ask your court for an extension. If they do not grant you are extension, you can take advantage of our  express service for an additional charge.

I still need to get my driving record. Can I take your class without it?

You do not need to have your driving record prior to coming to class. If you need help getting your driving record, ask the instructors for help. They will point you in the right direction.

I have been to defensive driving three times at teh "comedy classes", and they were not funny. Is yours really the funniest?

Humor, at best, is subjective. So, yes.
