no, but is it better than taking the original punishment?

i guess its different for each state. you can go to a 1 day class for 8 hours straight or 2 day class for 4 hours each. we had to watch 8 videos and they where 45 mins each.

I've been to a few defensive driving courses in my time. They can be worthwhile if you want them to be. It also depends on the instructor. The coolest I went to was done by a cool woman who likes riding motorcycles. Once I went to one in California, where I used to live, and the instructor apparently didn't want to be there either. So he just had everyone sign in, then sent us home. If one of the students had wanted to turn him in, I'm sure he would have been in trouble grin

If a class can keep you from getting a ticket on your driving record, its definitely worth it.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

I just got a ticket three weeks ago. Waiting for my stuff in the mail. Driving school sucks! They make it so damn boring you'd never speed again. Almost never. happywink

Alive @ 25? What even happened to live fast and die young? They should be showing you more Red Asphault. The opposite effect works much better. thumbsup
