Traffic Schools in Nevada
In addition to helping you hone your driving skills and allowing you to meet a court requirement, a driving school in Nevada may help you:
- Get a traffic ticket reduced or dismissed.
- Reduce points on your driving record.
- Qualify for auto insurance discounts.
Refer to our Nevada Defensive Driving section for specific details about each benefit mentioned above, and read on below for more information about the types of traffic and driving schools Nevada offers drivers and why each one is important.
Whether you want to voluntarily enroll in a driving school, or have been ordered by the courts to attend a traffic school, Nevada makes your selection easy by organizing these schools with their intended purposes.
Professional Driving Schools
The Professional Driving Schools are for general education, teen driver's education, and specialty driving education such as driving trucks. These schools are generally for drivers of all ages, but the individual schools may be certified to train specific categories like minors or behind-the-wheel training.
Driver education is required for all teen drivers under the age of 18. Note that the courses provided through the Professional Driving Schools meet that requirement, but classes may also be offered through your high school, so check with them too as you are deciding which course to take.
Traffic Safety Schools
The Traffic Safety Schools are for drivers who have been ordered by the courts to take a class, usually in a plea bargain, or who wish to voluntarily take the course to reduce points on their driving record.
The course can meet one or the other of these two requirements, but not both. Too, you can take one course in a 12-month period to reduce points on your record.
Nevada provides a complete list of Traffic Safety Schools divided by county. You'll also find a list of Internet schools.
DUI Schools are for drivers who have been convicted of DUI. The course may be taken as part of a plea bargain, or may be given as part of your sentence. The state provides a complete list of all DMV-approved DUI Schools.Local Traffic Schools
