Why take the Defensive Driving Course?

The Defensive Driving Course is certified by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles to assist individuals with the following:

  • Employment Driving Permit (completion required within 60 days of permit authorization)
  • License Reinstatement
  • Two Point Credit to your driving record
  • Under Age 21 Six Point Accumulation

Please note, the 8-Hour Defensive Driving Course will not dismiss a specific traffic ticket received in Sarpy County.

Two-Point Credit

To receive the two-point credit, the class must be completed on a voluntary basis. If the DMV is requiring the course for reinstatement or to prevent suspension for the Under Age 21 Point Accumulation, it will not be used for the point credit. This program can only be utilized once every five years and the course must be completed prior to the date of violation that would assess the 12th point on the driving record.
