4-Hour Basic Driver Improvement, 4-Hour BDI,also referred to as 4-Hour DDC

Getting A Traffic Ticket Happens To The Best Of Us

It’s a beautiful sunny day, and you’re on your way to that well deserved vacation. You’re going on a cruse tosparkling Bermuda or Aruba, and the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean await your arrival. Visions of tropical drinks, and 7 days of total rest and relaxation is exactly what the doctor ordered. But suddenly you hear the piercing sound of the siren, and over the loud speaker, law enforcement is politely asking that you pull safely to the side of the road…

Getting a Traffic Ticket Could Be Worse

Getting a citation is not what you would consider as fun. Running a red light, speeding, improper lane change do have a consequence … injury or death. And the State of Florida does not want you to end up as a statistic. Electing the 4-hour traffic school course option, or being court ordered to attend a 4-hour traffic school course is actually a “good thing” that few states offer, but are catching on fairly quickly. And, the nice thing about it is: you do have choices.

Did You Know …

You must complete a basic driver improvement course if you want to retain your driver license in the following circumstance:

            • Passed a stopped school bus or
            • You had two crashes in a two-year period, which resulted in property damage greater than $500 or
            • You were a driver in a crash and are found at fault and someone was transported to the hospital or
            • Was Highway Racing or Was a Highway Racing Spectator
            • Reckless Driving
            • Running a red light or traffic control device (such as a stop sign)

What Is The Cost Of The 4-Hour Traffic School Course?

Many online traffic school course providers claim to be the lowest but, once you hand over your charge card info and continue with your registration you’ll soon discover you’ll have to pay extra fees. Some of these fees – to name a few – are disguised as processing fees, or, handling fees, or service fees which in turn, jacks-up the price of the 4-hour basic driver improvement course (also referred to as the 4-hour DDC) considerably. The cost of our online 4-hour traffic school course is only $23.95 complete, and there are no hidden fees!



Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teens according to the Centers for Disease Control’s Teen Driver Fact Sheet.

Older teens are more likely to be involved in fatal crashes than younger teens. In addition, older teens were twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash between midnight and 6 am than younger drivers.

1,886 drivers age 15 to 20 died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015, compared with 1,723 drivers in this age group in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Research shows that when teenage drivers transport teen passengers there is a greatly increased crash risk. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a report in May 2012 that showed that the risk of 16- or 17-year old drivers being killed in a crash increases with each additional teenage passenger in the vehicle. The risk increases 44 percent with one passenger; it doubles with two passengers and quadruples with three or more passengers. The study analyzed crash data and the number of miles driven by 16- and 17-year olds.

Drivers age 16 to 20 accounted for 5.5 percent of all licensed drivers, 8.5 percent of all drivers involved in fatal crashes and 12.0 percent of drivers in all crashes in 2014. Seventeen percent of drivers age 16 to 20 who were involved in fatal crashes in 2014 were alcohol-impaired, which is defined by a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 grams per deciliter or higher.

The DOT found that more teenagers are involved in motor vehicle crashes late in the day and at night than at other times of the day. Teens also have a greater chance of getting involved in an accident if other teens are present in the vehicle, according to research from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm.


36 Percent of 10 – 20 year old male drivers who were involved in fatal crashes where speeding at the time of the crash. NHTSA says that speed-related crashes cost Americans $40.4 billion each year.

Speeding was a contributing factor in 28 percent of all traffic fatalities.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16- to 20-year olds, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Every state has a graduated driver’s license law that includes a three-phase program to help teens to develop more mature driving attitudes and gain experience behind the wheel.


In 2015, 10,625 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes.  1,886 drivers age 15 to 20 died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015, compared with 1,723 drivers in this age group in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 29 percent of all motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates 1,089,171 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics in 2015. The arrest rate works out to one arrest for 200 licensed drivers in the United States.

Teen drivers ages 15 to 20 are 1.6 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash, compared to adult drivers between the ages of 35 and 40.


New preliminary 2016 data shared recently from the NHTSA (National Center for Statistics and Analysis) estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicles crashes last year, a 6% rise from 2015. If those numbers bear out, it would be a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades. It also means that 2016 may have been the deadliest year on U.S. roads since 2007.
