Speeding Ticket? Go to Defensive Driving School

Have you recently received a speeding ticket? While it may seem like a mere inconvenience or a dent in your wallet, there's more to it than meets the eye. Not only will you have to pay a fine after a ticket, it will also greatly affect your insurance rates and driving record.

Consider this: Attending a defensive driving class could be your solution to not only avoiding the ticket fine but also saving you from insurance price hikes.

Attending defensive driving classes can often be a means to mitigate the consequences of a speeding ticket. Many states offer the opportunity to have the ticket dismissed or points reduced upon successful completion of such a course. Not only does this save you money in fines and potential insurance hikes, but it also keeps your driving record cleaner, which can be important for future opportunities, such as employment that requires driving.

These courses tend to only be 4 hours and can be done online at your leisure. It is important to know that in Arizona you can only take 1 defensive driving course every 12 months. Overall attending a defensive driving course could save you a substantial amount of time and money. Here at AZ Insurance Team we always recommend taking a defensive driving course after receiving a minor ticket. A major moving violation is NOT handled the same way.
