The following are the eligibility requirements for attending an Arizona Defensive Driving course:

  • You have not attended a defensive driving course for a traffic citation within the past 12 months.
  • Your violation must be on the list of eligible violations (see below), unless ordered by a court.
  • If eligible, you can attend for one violation only.
  • If you were involved in a serious injury or fatal collision, you are not eligible.
  • If you hold a commercial driver's license you are not eligible for the Defensive Driving course, regardless of whether you were driving a commercial vehicle or your personal vehicle at the time of the violation. In addition, those driving a commercial vehicle requiring a commercial driver's license are also not eligible. The only exceptions to this rule are:
    1. If the violation occurred before the driver held a commercial driver’s license.
    2. If the violation occurred after the driver surrendered his or her commercial driver’s license.
  • You must complete this course at least 7 days prior to your court date.
