Defensive Driving

Drivers who have penalty points against their records can have up to four points removed upon successful completion of this National Safety Council course. Depending on your insurance carrier, a discount may be available. You must register in advance and be on time. Any person who drives a motor vehicle when his or her license is cancelled, suspended or revoked is in violation of S.C. Statute 56-1-460 and is subject to arrest; this includes driving to and from TTC campuses. Verify before enrolling at www.scdmvonline.com if you have a penalty points balance on your driving record for the credited points to be applied.
