The following requirements must be met in order to attend the defensive driving class: you must attend court, you cannot have any moving violations on your driving record from anywhere for the last three years, and you cannot have taken a class to have a moving violation dismissed anywhere within the last three years.
There are costs associated with the class which are in lieu of the fines on the back of the citation. If you do qualify for the defensive driving class and wish to take it DO NOT pay the ticket in advance and DO NOT attend a class in advance. You will be asked to pay $75 court costs to the Town the day you appear in Court (local check or cash payments only). Registration for the class is an additional amount (approximately $50) paid directly to the defensive driving school you choose to attend.
