Michigan Defensive Driving Course

Michigan defensive driving may be offered as an option for a driver who has been ordered by a Michigan 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 online course offered on this website is approved by the Michigan Secretary of State. The course is taught in the classroom by Michigan defensive driving schools.
