Traffic Schools in Indiana
If you have received a ticket in Indiana, then the Four-Hour Basic Driver Improvement course is one way to get points off your driving record.
The Indiana BMV Driver Safety Program is designed to educate participants on how to become better defensive drivers.
While you may take the class voluntarily, it's also for those drivers who have been ordered to attend the class by a court ruling, and those who have been found guilty of two traffic convictions within a 12-month time frame.
If you're required to take the class, you must do so within 90 days of your notice. Be aware it can take between seven and 10 days to have your course completion results processed by the BMV.
Drivers volunteering to take the class should contact the provider directly to enroll. Drivers required by the court to attend should receive information from the court on how to enroll. (However, you may only be eligible to take the classroom instruction.)
Drivers forced to take the class due to multiple infractions will be given enrollment information by the BMV.
Program Cost and Methods
The course costs a maximum $55, payable to the provider, and is available through three BMV-approved options: classroom instruction, home study through a DVD/video recording, and home study online. Some offer the class in Spanish.
By successfully completing the course through a state-approved provider, you'll receive a four-point credit on your driving record. However, it won't remove any points off your license. You may receive the credit once every three years.
Auto Insurance Discounts
Check with your insurance company to see if they offer a discount for those who take the driver safety program.
