DEFENSIVE DRIVING SCHOOL

Defensive driving school will be allowed at the discretion of the court for some citations.  Successful completion of all requirements will result in a dismissal of the citation.  NO DRIVING SCHOOL APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED ON YOUR COURT DATE.  If you wait to appear in court you will forfeit your eligibility for defensive driving school.  Pleading guilty and paying your fines and/or court costs will also make you ineligible to take the defensive driving school for that citation. 

You must call the magistrates office immediately to apply for driving school.  Your case WILL NOT be continued for you to complete the class or pay in full.   [205-467-6133]

Criteria for driving school:

  • No traffic citations in the past 12 months
  • No more than 2 citations in the previous 4 years
  • No pending citations in any other court
  • No prior driving school  

Fees will be assigned according to criteria and citation type.  After application, you will be notified by a magistrate that you are approved to take our driving school.  You will be given this court’s driving school information and will be told your fee amount at that time.
