Reasons for Attendance

Drivers may be ordered to attend an 8-hour IDI course by a Florida court or judge, or they may elect to attend if given the option. Elective attendance is most common in Florida counties such as Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Orange. Judge ordered attendance is common when an offender has committed one or more serious traffic violations or has a record of violations.

An administrative order from a court might refer to the 8-hour traffic school course by any of the following names:

  • Intermediate Driver Improvement (IDI)
  • 8-Hour Basic DDS
  • 8-Hour DDS
  • 8-Hour ADV (Advanced)
  • 8-Hour DDC (Defensive Driving Course)

Drivers who are given the option to elect to attend usually do so to dismiss points from a second moving violation committed within 12 months. This option is sometimes given (most commonly in South Florida) to drivers because state law prohibits them from attending a 4-hour BDI course for more than one ticket within a 12-month period.

Not Aggressive Driving or DWLSR

If a driver has been ordered to attend an 8-hour aggressive driving course, the administrative order will specifically state this. Do not sign up for the IDI course if you need to take an aggressive driving course!

Similarly, this course cannot be taken to fulfill an order for DWLSR course attendance. If you are not sure what type of course you need, please call us at 1-800-222-9199. We will help you navigate through the often confusing requirements of Florida traffic school attendance.
