Kentucky Traffic School: Changes Ahead!

Big news from some of my contacts at Kentucky Department of Driver Licensing today. The state’s Transportation Cabinet has apparently updated its traffic school contracts. Unlike most states that allow many online traffic schools to operate as long as they meet certain curriculum requirements, Kentucky has only one single approved provider for online traffic school [the state actually seems to have on stronghold classroom courses as well].

What does any of this mean to you? Well, the school that was the lone provider of online Kentucky Traffic School, IDriveSafely.com no longer is. It also means their DVD Traffic School courses will no longer be available to people of the state either. Yes, for those of you with little to no internet, there was a DVD course option.

The new authorized provider og online Kentucky Traffic School will be Improv. So if you’re a speed demon, a distracted driver, or the type to try really hard to make the light before it turns red, make sure you bookmark these changes. I’ll be updating the main piece on my site for Kentucky Traffic School with all this information but such a big change did seem to warrant its own piece.

Stay Informed, Kentucky and should you need traffic school, be sure to check out Improv’s Online Kentucky Traffic School course!

Kentucky Traffic School Gets You Out of New or Old Points On Your Driving Record. Here’s How.

Kentucky drivers don’t have to settle for a bad driving record. A driving record that is filled with traffic violations can see you kept out of certain occupations, paying higher insurance premiums, or even worse, having your drivers license suspended. Nobody wants or needs that. Kentucky traffic school can be your key to a clean record, cheap premiums, and keeping you straight on the road of life.

To Remove Points Already On Your Record
In order to qualify for Kentucky Traffic School, you must be referred by the Division of Driver Licensing [DDL] in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet [Call (502) 564-1257 to get a referral for traffic school from the state].

The following are requirements to be eligible for Kentucky Traffic school:
-Have not taken traffic school in the last 12 months
-You must hold a valid Kentucky driver’s license [this includes CDL drivers]

Once you receive a letter from the state citing your allowance to take traffic school [they’ll also tell you how many points can likely be removed. In your particular case, you can sign up for a classroom, DVD, or online traffic school course. My instinct is to always recommend an online course as I assume most readers would like to avoid spending their day off in a classroom with strangers. The DVD course options ring too much of a correspondence course when people need instant results. So that’s why I recommend the online option.

Upon completion, the traffic school reports your finishing of the course to the Kentucky Cabinet of Transportation. I’d advise waiting about a month or so before you checking your driving record via the DMV to make sure the points have been removed. Governmental bodies move slow even if your traffic school reports you the next day. If your record isn’t updated after a month, then contact the DMV and follow up with your traffic school in case re-reporting is required. [Note, the violation will still likely appear on your record, but the points should not]

To Dismiss A Current Traffic Ticket
Now if you currently are involved in an active traffic ticket case, you would want to ask the court to allow you to take traffic school to avoid points. The court will likely grant the request provided you:

-Have not taken traffic school in the last 12 months
-You must hold a valid Kentucky driver’s license [this includes CDL drivers, however in this instance CDL drivers must also have approval from the Cabinet of Transportation]

Upon completion of traffic school, you’ll turn in your certificate of completion to the court. As with previous offense, you would want to check your record about a month later to make sure your driving record has been updated.

Now, when it comes to what online traffic school you should take, there’s actually only one. This isn’t merely me recommending it but it is literally the only Kentucky approved online traffic school course; Improv’s Kentucky Traffic School is your single option to dismiss your ticket or remove points from your record. The course may also be good for a premium reduction from your insurance provider as well in addition to the point removal benefits.
