Common Questions About DriveSafe Online

Why should I take a Defensive Driver course?

Staying current on defensive driving techniques can make you safer when you’re behind the wheel. That means you’re less likely to cause an accident and you’ll be more prepared to avoid accidents caused by others.

And while safety is the best reason to take a DriveSafe Online traffic school course, you may also want to consider taking a course to reduce your insurance premiums. Some drivers also may need to take a defensive driver course if they’ve been ordered to do so after a moving violation.

How often can I take a Defensive Driving course?

You can take the DriveSafe Online Defensive Driving Course as many times as you’d like. However, if your insurance company offers a discount after you complete the course, the discount could be good for up to three years.

How long does it take to complete a Defensive Driving course?

At DriveSafe Online, we recognize that your time is valuable. We’ve condensed the most important information into a clear, concise format that clocks in at 4 hours – the shortest time allowed by Tennessee law.

However, you don’t need to lock yourself away for a single 4-hour session; you can break up the time according to what fits best with your schedule. Whether it’s 10 minutes here and 20 minutes there, or two 2-hour blocks, our easy bookmarking feature will always pick right back up where you left off.
