DriveSafe Online Can Help with Your Traffic Ticket

If you receive a traffic ticket in Orange or Osceola County, you may be eligible to have it dismissed simply by passing our Florida BDI course and paying any required fines.

Available in Orange and Osceola Counties

For a limited time, our state-approved Florida BDI course is available only in Orange and Osceola Counties. We need several thousand drivers to complete this defensive driving program before we make it available to drivers in all Florida cities and counties.

When paying your fine, be sure to choose the option indicating that you elect to take the BDI traffic school to avoid points assessed to your driving record. You have 30 days from the time you receive your moving violation to let the Court Clerk know that you want to take the online course.  Your case will then be extended 90 days to give you time to complete the 4-hour basic driver improvement course.

If you qualify to take the driver safety course, and you pass the assessment to earn your completion certificate, points will NOT be added to your record! A clean driving record can help prevent increases to your auto insurance rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get my ticket dismissed in Florida?

Yes! If you receive a traffic ticket in Orange County or Osceola County, you may be eligible to take the 4-hour DriveSafe Online BDI course to keep points off your driver performance record.

You may only complete the BDI traffic school once within a 12-month period, and no more than five times in your lifetime. You must successfully complete the course within a 90-day acceptance window to dismiss the ticket before it appears on your driving record.

The DriveSafe Online Florida Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) course content is fully approved by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV) department. Check with the clerk of court in the county where you received your citation to see if your case qualifies. When you contact the court in Orange County or Osceola County, have your traffic ticket information available, including the ticket number, date, and violation.

Who can take a Florida BDI course?

Drivers who receive a traffic ticket in either Orange County or Osceola County may elect to pay a fine and complete a BDI course to keep points off their record. Keep in mind that specific violations qualify for the voluntary decision to complete the course. Options for satisfying a traffic violation are listed on the back of the ticket.

The FHSMV indicates that a Florida BDI course is mandatory when:

  • A driver elects to complete a BDI class instead of having points assessed from a traffic citation
  • A driver cited for a crash in which they were found at fault and required anyone being transported to the hospital
  • A driver involved in two crashes within a two-year period with property damage greater than $500
  • A driver convicted of one of the following violations:
    • Passing a school bus when stop signal is displayed
    • Highway racing
    • Reckless driving
    • Running a red light

Is it worth it to take a Florida BDI course?

Absolutely. You will receive the following benefits when you elect to take a Basic Driver Improvement course: 

  • Points may not be added to your driving record and adjudication of guilt is withheld
  • Fine will be reduced
  • Insurance rates are protected. Your insurance company cannot impose an additional premium, cancel your policy, or issue a non-renewal notice due to a traffic infraction when adjudication has been withheld and no points added to your record. However, this could change if the event involved a traffic crash, you are at fault, and the insurance company incurred a loss.
