 Defensive Driving Program 


 Defensive Driving Registration Form 

 Must include Drivers License Number and the reason for citation somewhere on the registration form


The 23rd NC Prosecutorial District, consisting of Ashe, Alleghany, Wilkes, and Yadkin Counties, will begin offering nationally and state certified defensive driving courses as part of the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina's Safe Driver Program in an attempt to reduce repeat traffic violations.  

The program offers qualified drivers the opportunity to receive a reduction on certain traffic offenses by completing the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course. Completion of the course may result in a reduced plea (e.g. improper equipment) which will allow drivers to avoid insurance and driver's license points for the violation. Costs of court and fines will still be assessed. Course completion is documented and maintained through a statewide database. Drivers are only eligible to participate in the program one time in a three-year period.  

Ultimately, our goal is to reduce the number of repeat traffic offenders which directly relates to public safety, says District Attorney Tom Horner. The benefits to the citizens of our district include safer roadways, a more educated driving public, and the opportunity for individuals to save some of the financial costs associated with traffic violations. 

Younger drivers, between the ages of 16 and 24, may take the Defensive Driving Course- Alive at 25, a highly interactive four-hour program that teaches young drivers how to take control of situations by taking responsibility for their own driving behavior. Drivers over the age of 24 will be offered the option to take a four-hour Defensive Driving Course or an eight-hour Defensive Driving Course- Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving Training. This program is designed to change careless driving behavior and improve bad driving attitudes, helping drivers make direct connections between their behaviors behind the wheel. 

 This new program does not apply to all traffic violations, and the list of applicable violations varies for each prosecutorial district. However, drivers with a citation in a NC district that accepts the Safe Driver Program may complete the course in the district the infraction occurred, or at a location closer to home. With 36 NC community colleges offering the two Defensive Driving Classes, most state residents will have the option to take the course they need without unnecessary travel. 

Pre-Registration and CASH ONLY Prepayment are required 3 business days before for all classes.  


Drivers must register 3 business days prior to the class.  

No late arrivals will be admitted to class.  

Refunds will NOT be granted for failure to attend class.
