What are the benefits of attending Florida traffic school online?

A Florida traffic ticket can be an unexpected and unwelcome expense. But you don't have to worry about your insurance costs rising* if you take your Florida traffic school online course through Floridas First Traffic School.com. Our Florida online traffic school course is the DMV approved 4 hour Basic Driver Improvement course that satisfies the obligations of all 67 Florida clerks of the court and the Florida DHSMV.

Unlike a classroom Basic Driver Improvement course, our easy Florida online traffic school doesn't require that you drive to a school location and sit through a lecture for 4 hours. Our course combines reading with video, Flash animations, and exercises to make your course experience both educational and enjoyable.

Our cheap Florida traffic school online provides several other benefits as well:

  • Maintain your safe driver status if you already had this before you received your Florida ticket.
  • Learn valuable safe driving strategies and techniques that can assist you in becoming a better driver. These could save your life some day or help you avoid life-threatening injuries from a crash.

How Can This Class Help Me?

Florida traffic school online can be taken for a wide variety of reasons. Here are some of the most common:

  • Elective attendance — Drivers who elect to attend a 4 hour BDI course online have chosen to take the course for the benefits described earlier on this page. You are not eligible for Florida traffic school online if you hold a Commercial Motor Vehicle license, have already elected to attend a BDI class for another ticket within the past year, or have elected BDI five times in your life. If these do not apply to you, you should be eligible to sign up for Florida traffic school online. Be sure to notify the court that issued your citation within 30 days of receiving your Florida traffic ticket!
  • Court ordered attendance — In many cases, drivers who contest their ticket in court will still be ordered by a judge to attend the Basic Driver Improvement course regardless of whether or not their ticket is dismissed. In these cases, points might or might not be assigned for the offense (that is up to the judge). Drivers who have been so ordered can attend the court ordered Florida traffic school online by signing up with Florida's First Traffic School.
  • TCAC attendance — TCAC stands for Traffic Collision Avoidance Course. This type of attendance is ordered by the Florida DHSMV for drivers who have been involved in certain traffic crash situations (see our TCAC page for specific reasons drivers are ordered to attend this course). Although the TCAC course is the same as a BDI course, the school that the student attends must report the TCAC Florida traffic school online completion as a TCAC completion, not a BDI completion, or the student's Florida driver license will be cancelled by DHSMV! If this is your reason for attending Florida traffic school online, be sure to select TCAC when you register for the course.
  • Business and industry attendance — Many employers with vehicle fleets are turning to driver improvement as a means of reducing corporate losses. If your employer has ordered you to attend a driver improvement course to sharpen your defensive driving skills, you can select the fleet training Florida traffic school online option when you register for the course.
  • Insurance discount / voluntary attendance — Another form of voluntary attendance of Florida traffic school online is to obtain a Florida automobile insurance discount of up to 10%. While Florida law does authorize such a discount, it is not mandatory, so you should check with your insurer first to verify that you are eligible to receive the discount for completing a DHSMV approved 4-hour Basic Driver Improvement course.

What is the course like?

The quick and simple Florida traffic school online registration requires that you enter some basic information about yourself and your ticket to get started. You will also answer some short security questions that will be asked again while you are taking the course. The course is divided up into units that you complete at your own pace. Each Florida traffic school online unit has a timer mechanism in place to make sure you spend the amount of time in the course that is required by the Florida DHSMV.

As you work through the course, you will read information about defensive driving concepts such as the IPDE (Identify, Predict, Decide, Execute) strategy for driving. Several case studies will ask you to analyze a traffic crash to determine who was primarily responsible and what the drivers could have done to avoid the crash. And since this is Florida traffic school online, there are Flash animations to illustrate key concepts such as isolating your vehicle in traffic and yielding the right of way. You won't find that in a traditional Florida traffic school classroom course!

Another unique feature of our easy Florida traffic school online course is that it teaches drivers how to recognize their attitude states. Based on the theory of Transactional Analysis developed by Dr. Eric Berne, the DTA Florida traffic school online program teaches that each driver has three attitude states — Parent, Adult, and Child. While the Adult Attitude State is the most effective for defensive driving, the Parent and Child Attitude States can control our behavior behind the wheel and cause us to take unnecessary risks. Part of the instructional program for the Florida traffic school online course is teaching drivers to recognize and avoid the Parent and Child Attitude States.

Take Florida traffic school online today! Instead of spending time in a Florida traffic school classroom course, you can complete your BDI course from the comfort of your own home or office, at school, or even at the beach! There just isn't a better way to take care of your Florida traffic ticket.
