Traffic Schools in Alaska
If you have received a traffic ticket in Alaska, then a Alaska State Approved Traffic School is a great way to dismiss your traffic ticket and lose the points from your driving records. I Drive Safely is a good choice for Alaska traffic school online.
The successful completion of a course from one of the approved traffic schools may prevent violations from damaging your driving record. While in many cases a course just might get a traffic ticket dismissed, attending traffic school can also enhance your driving knowledge and skill level, and it may increase your overall safety awareness so that you, your family, and other drivers can be safer on the roads.
Alaska's Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offers a defensive driving class aptly called Defensive Driving. Attending one these courses could possibly, depending on your driving record, make the difference between keeping or losing your driving privileges.
- Successful completion of a state-approved defensive driving course within 12 months of your most recent violation will trim two points from your driving record.
- Depending on where you live and whether you were issued a ticket by the state police, attending a course could negate the ticket. Each traffic school and district varies on this so call ahead to confirm.
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.
Mature Driving Programs
The DMV in conjunction with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) sponsors 55 Alive, a driver safety program. The course helps improve driving skills and defensive driving techniques by touching on such topics as vision and hearing changes, hazardous driving situations, and the effects of medication.
Besides the obvious educational benefits of this course, it may also trim your car insurance premiums.
The eight-hour course is divided into two four-hour sessions over two days. Cost: $10. For more information dial (888) 227-7669.
