If you have a Florida Driver’s license or you received a ticket in Florida, then the 4 Hour Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) course is for you! By taking the class, you will not receive any points on your record for the current violation, your insurance will not increase as long as there is no accident associated with the ticket, and your safe driver status will be maintained. The 4 Hour Basic Driver Improvement (B.D.I.) course may be completed Online, by DVD, or in the classroom. The 4 hour B.D.I. is required by the Department of Highway safety and motor vehicles for anyone who receives a moving violation and elects the option to attend traffic school in order to avoids points being assessed on their driving record. The 4 hour course is the most common and most widely taken course. This course may be taken as an election to avoid points, as a judgment (Judge Ordered), as a TCAC (Traffic Collision Avoidance Course), and as defensive driving course for an insurance discount. The 4 hour course may only be taken once every twelve months. If you have already taken a 4 hour class within the past twelve months then you may be eligible to take an 8 hour course.
THIS COURSE IS USUALLY ORDERED BY THE COURT. THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO:
- Have received multiple citations
- Have committed serious traffic violations
- Have been involved in multiple collisions
