Computer-Based Driver Improvement Clinics

DMV is committed to promoting transportation safety through the certification of quality driver training programs, and has reviewed and approved the computer-based programs listed on this site.

Upon successful completion of the online course, you may be eligible to receive up to five safe driving points.

A computer-based clinic will not meet the requirements of a commercial driver improvement clinic.

Final Course Exam

The driver improvement course can be taken online; however, the final exam must be taken at a centralized test site. The test may be taken only once per business day.

Prior to registering for the course, verify that a test site is located in your area. A list of test sites is located on the web site of each course provider. DMV does not maintain schedules for testing.

You will be required to show photo identification prior to taking the test. Open book testing is not allowed.

Acceptance by the Court

Your court may or may not accept the certificate of completion. It is your responsibility to determine if your court accepts online traffic schools.

Online Course Ineligibility

You may not take a computer-based driver improvement course if:

  • You are under age 20
  • You were convicted of a traffic violation when you were under the age of 20

If either of these conditions apply, you are not eligible to take a computer-based driver improvement course to satisfy a DMV requirement. Instead, you must satisfactorily complete a driver improvement clinic that provides classroom instruction.
