Defensive Driving Class

Alive at 25—What It Is

Alive at 25 is a FREE defensive driving class designed by the National Safety Council and taught by law enforcement officers with the goal of lowering teen/young adult automobile crashes.  It is a 4½-hour class for drivers between the ages of 15 and 24.  It takes place in a classroom setting and includes instructional videos, a workbook, and class discussion.  

You do not need to have a learner permit or driver’s license to take the class.

If you have received a traffic ticket/citation by a police officer and meet the age requirements, you have the POSSIBILITY of receiving a reduction or dismissal of your charge upon successful completion of the class 

What You Need to Know

Taking the class does NOT guarantee your ticket will be reduced or dismissed.  The prosecutor in your case will make that decision on the circumstances of your ticket and your driving history.  

An Alive at 25 reduction or dismissal is based on successful completion of the class may only be granted once.

All available courses are listed on the Alive at 25 website along with dates, times, locations, and how many seats are available.
