Traffic Safety Program

Online Defensive Driving Course

How does the online course work?

The online course offers an interactive learning environment where you will analyze real driving situations, spot driving hazards, and identify the correct defenses.

Once your registration form has been received, an access code, website information and instructions on how to get started will be sent to you. If an email address has been provided, this information will be sent to you via email, otherwise this information will be sent to your mailing address.

The online course is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so it can be completed at anytime. The course has a "bookmark" feature which allows you to log out and return to the course at a later time.

Once you have completed the course, you will have the opportunity to print a certificate of completion. You will also receive a certificate of completion in the mail from Lake Land College to keep for your records.

If you DID NOT receive your citation in Coles, Cumberland, Moultrie or Effingham counties, you may register by clicking on the link below.
