This highly-interactive course is geared towards young adults ages 25 or younger. Drivers in this age group have the option for their first ticket to attend either this classroom course or the 4-hour Online Driver Safety Course. Should someone in this age group choose Online DSC for their first ticket and receive a second ticket within 12 months (based on ticket issuance date) where Traffic Safety School is elected, the driver
must then take the classroom Alive at 25 course.
Alive at 25 teaches young drivers that there are consequences to driving behavior and provides tools for making positive choices. Through media segments, group discussions, role playing and workbook exercises, young drivers develop strategies that keep them safe on the road.
Drivers older than 25 who completed a 4-hour Driver Safety Course and elect Traffic Safety School for a second ticket within 12 months based on ticket issuance date are automatically upgraded to the 8-hour course. This highly interactive course engages students in relearning road rules. Exercises explain the connection between choices and consequences, and help the student develop a plan to change their driving choices and behaviors.
The 8-hour course can be completed in one weekday or Saturday. The 8-hour course cannot be completed online.
