How do I elect to attend a driver improvement course for my citation?

This election is for moving traffic citations not requiring mandatory court appearance (i.e. speeding in excess of 30 MPH, crash resulting in injury).  You may not elect to attend driver improvement school for any violation if you hold a commercial drivers license (CDL).  You have 30 days to elect a driver improvement course and 60 days from date of election to complete it.  It is the defendant's responsibility to file the certificate of completion with the Clerk's Office.  

You can find Florida approved basic driver improvement courses on Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website -
