Defensive Driving in South Carolina
South Carolina's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), in conjunction with the state's 16 technical colleges and the National Safety Council, offers a statewide defensive driving class called the Defensive Driving Course (DDC).
This eight-hour course is offered statewide at any one of South Carolina's 16 technical colleges. Course times and fees vary with each college. Generally, expect to pay around $75.
This class does not have the power to dismiss a ticket. You should check with your district court about ticket dismissal.
If you have less than four points on your record the class will only reduce those number of points. Or, in other words, if you have two points on your record the class will eliminate those two points with no two point carry-over to be used, if needed, towards a future violation.
