  • Point Reduction in Nevada

    If you have received a traffic ticket in Nevada, then a Nevada State Approved Point Reduction Course is a great way to prevent points from appearing on your driving records. I Drive Safely is a good choice for Nevada Point Reduction online.

    Remove NV Driving Record Points

    Nevada motorists usually attend a Nevada DMV-approved traffic safety school for one of the following reasons:

    • As part of a plea bargain agreement with a Nevada court.
    • To remove 3 points from their driving record.

    If your enrollment is based on a plea bargain agreement, points will not be removed from your driving record.

    For more information about your enrollment options and course completion requirements, please visit our Traffic Schools in Nevada page.

    Point removal is only available if you have between 3 points and 11 points on your driving record and you decide to enroll on your own. The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) Driver License Review Section will send you a notification when your driving record point total reaches 3 points.

    Depending on your preference, you may enroll in an online traffic safety school or one with a traditional classroom setting. The benefit of taking an online driver safety course is convenience. If you have a tight schedule, this might be the best way to go.

    If you aren't eligible to remove driving record points by taking a defensive driving course, completing one may still be beneficial to reduce your risk of violating traffic laws and receiving citations in the future.

    Complete Driving Safety Courses in Nevada

    To receive credit on your driving record, your traffic school course must be Nevada DMV-approved. If you have doubts about the program you're considering, contact the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a list of approved NV traffic safety schools.

    Keep in mind you have the option to take a state-approved online traffic school course. This will give you the flexibility to complete the course from your home computer when your schedule allows.

    Submit Requirements to the DMV

    Driving record points will not be removed from your driving record until the NV Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) receives your course completion certificate. In most cases, the school will submit your completion certificate to the Nevada DMV for you. Be sure to confirm this with your traffic safety school. If they don't, you'll need to make arrangements to deliver the completion certificate yourself.

    Also check with your traffic school on obtaining a completion certificate you can submit to your car insurance provider. In many cases, auto insurance companies offer a discount for driver improvement course completion.

    Check Your Nevada Driving Record

    After completing your traffic safety school course, check to make sure your driving record reflects the driving record point course credit. Notify the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) of any point total errors and periodically keep an eye on your driving record.

    Since an accumulation of points could lead to suspension of your NV driver's license and/or cause an unwarranted increase in your car insurance rates, you want to be sure the state's record is an accurate reflection of the total points associated with your NV driver's license.
