Traffic Schools in ArkansasPage Overview
Arkansas Traffic Schools
Traffic school, or defensive driving courses, may be available to Arkansas drivers who wish to dismiss a traffic ticket and earn auto insurance discounts.
Depending on the Arkansas traffic court or car insurance company, drivers may be able to complete traffic school to:
- Remove a traffic ticket.
- Earn a car insurance discount.
- Avoid points on their Arkansas driving record.
Traffic school programs are designed to refresh drivers on defensive driving habits, Arkansas traffic laws, and the rules of the road. Even if a driver is not eligible to complete a course to dismiss a ticket or get an insurance discount, traffic school can help him or her become a better motorist.
Generally, Arkansas drivers have the choice of completing traffic school online or in a classroom.
A driver’s eligibility to use traffic school to dismiss a traffic ticket or earn a car insurance discount will be determined by his or her traffic court or car insurance provider.
If a driver is eligible to dismiss a traffic ticket, the Arkansas traffic court will usually give a time limit to complete traffic school and provide information about any additional fees/documents required.
For drivers taking traffic school voluntarily to earn a car insurance discount, the deadline to complete the program will usually depend on the course provider.
Drivers should contact the appropriate court or their insurance provider for specific information about their options and requirements.
Not all traffic violations can be removed by completing traffic school. If this is the case, points will be added to a driver’s Arkansas driving record.
Too many points can lead to fines and a suspended driver’s license.

Both online traffic schools and courses completed in the classroom will take about the same amount of time and will cover topics including:
- Defensive driving techniques.
- Arkansas traffic laws.
- Alcohol/drug abuse, awareness and violations.
- Sharing the road with motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and other cars.
To satisfy your traffic school requirements, you’ll likely need to pass a final exam and submit your completion certificate to your court or car insurance provider.
Drivers should contact their insurance company or Arkansas court for more information.Local Traffic Schools
