NOTE: The 8-hour Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) is also referred to as 8-hour Intermediate, or,
the 8-hour advanced course, or, 8-Hour DDC can be taken for the following reasons:

If you receive a ticket for a non-criminal moving violation, and if you elected to attend a 4 hour basic driving improvement course within the past 12 month, you may elect to attend an 8 hour

basic driver improvement course in lieu of points on your driving record. Note: Not all counties offer this as an elected option. This option is available in select counties. Check with the clerk of court for the county in which you received your citation prior to electing an 8-hour basic driver improvement course.

Why Should I take the 8-Hour Traffic School course online?

Overall – and in most cases – a judge or magistrate ordered you to attend an 8-hour basic driver improvement course. And, if or, as a result of your moving violation you elected or, was court ordered to attend and complete a 8 hour basic driver improvement course, you will receive the following benefits:

        • Your insurance rates cannot go up and your policy cannot be canceled because of this violation, unless this involved a crash where you were at fault.
        • Points will NOT be added to your driver license record, adjudication of guilt is withheld, safe driver status is maintained if applicable, and the fine could be reduced.

You may not make an election under this subsection if you have made this election in the preceding 12 months.
Note: A person may make no more than five elections in 10 year time frame.

Within 30 days from the date your received the traffic citation and prior to attending class, you must:

Inform the Clerk of Court in the county where you received the citation that you want to go to traffic school, and Pay an election fee to the Clerk of Court in the county where you received the citation.

A full list of your options for satisfying your traffic citation is on the back of your citation OR, the officer provided you with a handout describing your options. You are required to choose one of the three options listed in that handout within 30 days of receiving the citation.

How Much Is Your Course?

Many online traffic school courses 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 8-hour BDI also referred to as the 8-Hour DDC course considerably. Our 8-hour BDI course which is also referred to as 8-hour DDC course is only $60.00 complete, and there are no hidden fees!

SOME TEEN DRIVING FACTS & STATISTICS

TEENAGE DRIVER FACTS

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.

DRIVER BEHAVIOR FACTS

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.

DRUNK & IMPAIRED DRIVING FACTS

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.
