You must complete a basic driver improvement course (Traffic Collision Avoidance Course) if you want to retain your driver license in the following circumstance:
- You were a driver in a crash and are found at fault and someone was transported to the hospital or
- You had two crashes in a two-year period, which resulted in property damage greater than $500 or
- You are convicted of running a red light or
- You were convicted of passing a school bus when it displays a stopped signal or
- You were convicted of racing on highway
If you receive a ticket for a non-criminal moving violation, and you do not hold a commercial driver license, you may elect to attend a basic driver improvement course in lieu of points on your driving record.
In some cases, you may choose to attend a basic driver improvement course to receive insurance discounts. This discount is solely at the discretion of your insurance company.
