If you have a gotten a speeding ticket recently, you may have been all but ready to pay it because you could not afford the time off or the travel costs to go to a defensive driving class. Online defensive driving courses may be an option for you, because they are inexpensive and work with your schedule. However, the course you take must be authorized by the state as an official defensive driving course.  When trying to determine if the online defensive driving course you have chosen is approved by the state, the best thing to do is to go to the website and check.

Most courses state on the front page if they meet the state requirements to have a ticket dismissed. If you don’t see it right away, you can call the courthouse or contact the online defensive driving course to see if they will work to get your ticket dismissed.
