B.D.I. Basic Driver Improvement
B.D.I. Basic Driver Improvement
This class is for those who have received tickets for moving violations, and do not want the points to appear on their driving record. We offer the State-approved course B.D.I. (Basic Driver Improvement) & T.C.A.C. (Traffic Collision Avoidance Course - court ordered).
If you are able, we suggest you take this course in a classroom setting. This is an interactive setting were you will learn more from the instructor and your peers.
All classes are approved by the State of Florida and taught by certified instructors. A certificate will be issued to you, so you can present it to the clerk of the court in the county where you received your ticket. This will insure that the points for your ticket do not appear on your driving record. Please Note: "You may elect this course up to 5 times in a lifetime, but only once in any 12 month period."
Insurance Discount Certificate
Other reasons for taking the 4 hour course:
Many employers require that an employee who operates a company vehicle must complete a research proven effective driver improvement program as an ongoing condition of employment. The option to complete this type of training in an interactive environment is being selected by employers in increasing numbers in order to minimize lost profit from direct and indirect company losses associated with vehicular crashes.
If you have received an order from the traffic, criminal or some other court, then you should take this course.
Students typically select this option when they have contacted their insurance provider and received authorization to voluntarily attend a 4-hour insurance discount course for the purpose of obtaining a discount of up to 10% off their automobile insurance premium. This discount remains in effect for three years, as set forth in §627.06501, Florida Statutes. This discount is NOT mandatory and is given solely at the discretion of the insurance provider. It is the student's responsibility to contact his or her insurance provider to ascertain whether he or she is eligible for the insurance discount.
