How Schools Verify Your Eligibility

Schools are required to verify your eligibility with the Supreme Court prior to giving you access to the course. Here is how we do it:

  1. Once you have completed the registration process, we use the information you provide to ensure your eligibility with the State of Arizona. Eligibility is typically verified within 30 minutes of registration.
  2. Watch for your eligibility alert on our "Welcome Back" page after you log in.

    Note:The "Welcome Back" page does not refresh itself. Please refresh your browser if you do not see the eligibility alert.

If we still do not have a copy of your citation, it can be uploaded to your account, emailed to us at support@safe2drive.com or faxed to (858) 225-8699. (We suggest tracing over all citations that are hand written in order to ensure legibility.)

Where is my court?

Tips to Find Your Court

  1. Your court is identified on your citation by id, name, address, and zip.
  2. It helps to know the county in which your court resides.
  3. Each court in Arizona has a unique ID. This is the most reliable way to find your court.

Strange Court Names and Locations

We have noticed strange things about some court names. Sometimes the court name on the citation is not the name the Arizona State Supreme Court uses.

  1. Cochise County Justice Court Precinct 5 is also called Sierra Vista JP (ID:0205).
  2. The words 'Magistrate Court' and 'City Court' mean 'Municipal Court'.
  3. Maricopa Municipal Court is in Pinal County ... not Maricopa County.

view price details

All schools are required to collect the state fee and court fee. These fees are then sent onto the state and court respectively.

State fees? Court fees?

State Fee = An administrative fee for giving you the privilege of taking defensive driving.

Court Fee = Another administrative fee. We pay your court fee directly to the Court Clerk.

view price details

The State fee and Court fee are not fines. Your fines were waived when you chose the option of defensive driving.

Refund policy?

Once a student begins the course, there will be no refund of the course fee. If a student requests a refund before they start the course, we will issue a refund of the course fee minus a $15 processing fee.

The State of Arizona has specific rules about when state and court fees may be refunded. Your state and court fees will only be refunded if you did not start the course, the officer failed to file your citation with the court, or your citation is dismissed by a jurisdictional court on its own motion for technical problems not correctable under civil traffic rules of court.

Although the state fees will not be refunded under any circumstances other than those stated above, at its discretion, a court may allow a refund of a court diversion fee to a student (this is a court by court decision).

When does the court get my money?

We mail checks once a week. They usually arrive at the court house in 7 days or less after completion.

Lessons and Quizzes

Our Arizona Defensive Driving course is four hours long, as is mandated by the state of Arizona. The course consists of 16 short lessons that are timed to ensure you spend the minimum required time in the course. At the end of each lesson is a 3-question multiple-choice quiz. You must answer all three questions correctly to proceed to the next lesson. You may retake the lesson quizzes as many times as necessary to pass.

Identity Verification Questions

Throughout the course, you will encounter identity verification questions, as is required by the state of Arizona. These are questions that are unique to you that you will answer during registration and then answer again as you encounter them in the course. According to Arizona’s rules, you must answer the identity verification questions correctly to proceed with the course. If you answer an identity verification question incorrectly, you will be presented with a second question. If you answer that second question correctly, you may proceed with the course. If you answer the second question incorrectly, you will be prompted to call our Customer Support line, where we will attempt to verify your identity. If we are able to successfully verify your identity, you will have to start the course over from the beginning. This identity verification procedure is required by the state of Arizona for all Defensive Driving courses.

Final Exam

There is no final exam in our course. Once you complete the last lesson quiz and answer the final identity verification question, you’re done!

Course Evaluation

We will ask you to complete a quick course evaluation form at the end of the course. Let us know what you thought about your course experience!

Receipt of Completion

When you complete the course, you can print a Receipt of Completion to keep for your records. We will electronically notify the court of your completion within 1 business day. The courts do not process the completion in their system until they have received the payment. Please be assured that the court will process your completion using the date you completed the course, not the date that they process the completion. Be sure to check with the court 7-10 business days after completing the course to ensure they have processed your completion.

How does identity verification work?

Throughout the course, you will encounter identity verification questions. These are required by the state of Arizona to ensure you are the one completing your course. Identity verification questions are questions that are unique to you that you will answer during registration and then answer again as you encounter them in the course. One example of an identity verification question is, "What is your favorite color?" You must select your answer from a dropdown menu we provide.

According to Arizona’s rules, you must answer the identity verification questions correctly to proceed with the course. If you answer an identity verification question incorrectly, you will be presented with a second question. If you answer that second question correctly, you may proceed with the course. If you answer the second question incorrectly, you will be prompted to call our Customer Support line, where we will attempt to verify your identity. If we are able to successfully verify your identity, you will have to start the course over from the beginning. According to the state of Arizona's rules, these identity verification procedures must be followed by all Defensive Driving courses in the state of Arizona.

Do I have to take a final exam?

No. There is no final exam in our course. Once you complete the last lesson quiz, pass the last identity verification question, and fill out the course evaluation form, you're done!
