Finally, Michigan joins states like Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Texas, just to name a few, that offer defensive driving education in exchange for ticket dismissal and point avoidance.

Beginning December 31, 2010, if a Michigan driver receives a traffic ticket, the driver may be eligible (based on their driving record) to take a Basic Driver Improvement Course. The driver still pays the fine for their ticket. However, if they opt to take the Basic Driver Improvement Course the points or information about the violation will not be transferred to their driving record or disclosed to insurance companies.

Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a win-win for Michigan drivers who could save money by avoiding increased insurance rates and driver responsibility fees. Plus, an independent study shows positive results for drivers that participate in and successfully pass a Basic Driver Improvement Course.

One study showed that over 70% of the drivers who had participated in the driver safety training program had zero collisions and violations during a nine-year period.
