Why Take a Defensive Driving Course:
1. Clean Driving Record:
In Texas, when you choose to pay for a traffic ticket or moving violation, that infraction will officially be placed on your driving record. Each infraction will add points to your record, which stay on your record for three years. If at any given time you accrue six or more points, you will be required to pay an annual surcharge and you could possibly have your license suspended, until the points on your record drop below six. Completing a defensive driving course can prevent some infractions and violations from adding points to your record. However, in most cases, you are only allowed to take a defensive driving course once every 12 months for a traffic ticket. You should always ask your court for permission before taking a defensive driving course.
2. Potentially Saves Money:
Speeding tickets in Texas can cost a person around $150. If you take defensive driving for a speeding ticket, the court fees will cost you around $100 and defensive driving will cost around $25, saving you around $25. Since taking a defensive driving course can also prevent points from being added to your record, it can also save you money in the long run by keeping you from having to pay the annual surcharges mentioned above.
3. Insurance Discount:
By taking a defensive driving course, your automobile insurance provider may grant you up to a 10% discount. However, not all insurance providers grant this discount so you should ask your provider before taking the class strictly for insurance purposes.
4. Flexible Schedule:
If you opt to take a defensive driving course online then you can take the class based on your own schedule. While all state approved Texas defensive driving courses must be six hours in length, by taking the course online, you can take part of the course as your schedule allows and finish it later when you have more time available. When you take the course online you do not have to complete the course all in one time. While Comedy Driving has defensive driving courses available every day of the week, the scheduled class times may not be convenient for you. Fortunately, their online course is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
5. Quick Certificate Delivery:
At Comedy Driving, whether you take the course online or in one of the classrooms, you have a few different options to receive your certificate. If you prefere to have a physical copy sent to you, we can send in by regular mail and that will take about 2-4 days to arrive. If you choose express delivery, we can overnight it for an additional fee. However, our most popular option is to have your defensive driving certificate emailed to you. This option is $5 and as soon as you complete the course, you can download and print your certificate of completion.
6. Easily Accessible:
If you take the course in a classroom, Comedy Driving has several convenient Texas Defensive Driving locations throughout Houston. The locations are: Katy Freeway, Sugar Land, League City, and Willowbrook.
So now you know defensive driving isn’t hard, but driving without ever getting a ticket is!
