Common Questions About DriveSafe Online

Who should take a DriveSafe Online Defensive Driver course?

Anyone with a Tennessee driver’s license can benefit from our defensive driving traffic school course. Refresh your existing driving skills and knowledge and review new information and techniques to help you handle challenging driving situations.

Other good reasons to take a defensive driving course include:

  • If you are ordered by the court after a moving violation
  • If you want to reduce insurance premiums
  • If you want to reduce or avoid a license suspension
  • If you want to become a safer driver

How long does an online defensive driving course take?

All courses are not created equal. Some in-person traffic schools can take a full day—or sometimes multiple days—to complete. And that doesn’t include the time it takes to get to the classroom location and back home.

But there’s a better way.

DriveSafe Online offers a 4-hour online Tennessee traffic school, the shortest course allowed by Tennessee law. That means if you get a speeding ticket in Hamilton County, you can take the course when and where you choose, stopping and starting without losing your place, in the shortest possible time according to your schedule.

How much is a defensive driving class in Hamilton County?

Defensive driving classes in Hamilton County can vary depending on the reason for taking the course, the company offering the program, and the format of the class. For example, you can expect to pay up to $95 if a court orders you to attend traffic school with a live instructor for license reinstatement.

However, the 4-hour state-approved Tennessee Defensive Driving course from DriveSafe Online is available for just $24.95. Whether you need to meet certain court requirements or simply want to earn an insurance discount, DriveSafe Online is your best option for traffic school.
