Am I eligible for Defensive Driving School?
Yes, so long as you haven’t completed Arizona’s Defensive Driving School within the prior year of the incident date. In addition, you’re not eligible if you hold a commercial driver’s license.
What’s the benefit of attending Defensive Driving School in a Criminal Speeding Case?
Once dismissed, it’s as if it never happened: no points, no increased insurance, and no criminal conviction on your record. In other word, there’s no penalty or consequence other than taking the time and money to attend defensive driving school.
Keep in mind though, defensive driving is 100% discretionary. You, or your attorney, must convince the judge to grant defensive driving. Having an attorney file a custom written memorandum and argue your case gives you the best odds at driving school.
