Is your driving record in the red, and you need a way to replace your demerit points?

The Tri-City Driving School offers a comprehensive Defensive Driving Course, also referred to as our premier Driver Improvement Clinic to individuals who have been assigned by the Court, Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV), or volunteer to complete our driving education course.  When you complete the Clinic, you may receive a well-earned rate reduction on your auto insurance policy as well as gaining positive points to replace your demerit points on your driving record.

Students who complete the Tri-City Driving School's Driver Improvement Clinic will receive a certificate to provide as your tangible evidence to DMV and your insurance provider.   Also, you will enjoy an auto insurance discount from your volunteer participation in the Driver Improvement Clinic.  This discount is approved under the Virginia State Statute § 38.2-2217, in which any motor vehicle insurance rate filed with the Commissioner may offer a reduction in premium rates for Virginia drivers younger than 55 years of age.  This legal discount covers you for two years. However, if your participation in the Driver Improvement Clinic is court mandated, you will not be eligible for the discounted insurance rate.
