Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
Alaska's Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offers a defensive driving class aptly called Defensive Driving. Attending one of these courses can provide long-term benefits to your driving record.
Successfully completing one of Alaska's state-approved defensive driving courses within 12 months of your most recent violation will trim two points from your driving record.
Also, attending a class, in some districts, can dismiss a ticket, but only if you have not taken a defensive driving class within two years and the ticket was issued by a state police officer rather than a municipal police officer.
Each traffic school and district varies on ticket dismissals so call ahead to confirm.
Completion of the course will not reduce insurance costs.
Courses are offered at various locations throughout the state. Because private companies handle the teaching, hours and prices vary.
There are also five schools approved by Alaska's DMV for online instruction as well.
