Louisiana Defensive Driving Course

Flag of Louisiana showing that course is accepted by most traffic courts

Louisiana defensive driving may be offered as an option for a driver who has been ordered by a Louisiana judge or court to attend a driver improvement course as part of the deferred adjudication process (ticket dismissal). This is also sometimes referred to as traffic school or defensive driving school attendance.

This course is offered both online (statewide) and in the classroom (in some areas). The course can be taken from a classroom-based Louisiana defensive driving school.

While our course completion certificates are accepted by most traffic courts, we cannot guarantee that they will be accepted by every court. Please contact your court first to determine that course attendance is permissible.

Louisiana Auto Insurance Discount

Many insurance companies provide a discount to drivers who voluntarily attend a driver improvement or defensive driving course. The amount of the discount and the effective period of the discount vary by company and / or by state.

Contact your auto insurance agent to find out if you can receive a discount for attending this driver improvement program.

DTA offers the Louisiana defensive driving / driver improvement course through I Drive Safely®, Louisiana's number one traffic school course provider.
