How quickly can I finish this course?
The great thing about this course is that you work at your own pace. No one is sitting over your shoulder making you slow down or speed up. Everyone reads at different speeds and this program will allow you to proceed at your own pace with no time maximum for the program. The average completion time varies on your reading ability, but should never take more than an actual sit down class.
How long does it take to get the certificate?
There are different ways of receiving the completion certificate. Because of security reasons, it is impossible for you to print your own certificate, so the original certificate must be sent directly from our office to you. When you enroll, you may choose for regular mail or expedited service.
Does the course cost anything?
Unfortunately, there is a cost to attend Michigan Online Defensive Driving. The price will cover all elements of the course including immediate access to the site and the completion certificate. Regular in-class driver improvement school courses charge similar fees. Driver improvement courses are a privately operated industry and whether you sit in a class or choose this online program, you will need to pay for it.
Are court fees the same as driver improvement fees?
Unfortunately, all fees paid to the court are separate from fees paid for actual driver improvement school. Although many courts call the fees paid in addition to the bail amount a "driver improvement" fee, it is actually only an administrative fee. Michigan Online Defensive Driving is privately owned and operated and does charge a fee....as do all driver improvement schools.

What do I do now?

This may result from a lost Internet connection, another call interrupting your connection if you are on a single line with call waiting, or simply because your own computer crashes.
