We're in this together

We are living through a crisis the likes of which our world has not seen for a hundred years. As COVID-19 spreads through the United States and state governments place restrictions on citizens and businesses for the safety of all Americans, we see more and more just how much we all need each other’s help to get through these difficult times. We are a small business and, as emergency measures limit our regular classroom instruction, we must work hard to keep our instructors employed. When you register with us, you are directly supporting Arizonans just like you as we all work through the COVID-19 crisis together.

  • A State Fee of $20 and State Surcharge of $45
  • A copy of your citation and your license (or other, government-issued identification) is required to complete the course.
  • The course must be completed at least 7 days before your court deadline date.
  • Commercial Driver License holders are eligible only if they received their ticket at 09/01/2019 while driving a non-commercial vehicle for non-commercial purposes.
  • For more information, please contact the AOC at (888)334-5565, email them at [email protected], or visit their website.

Affirmation of Eligibility

Affirmation of Eligibility: By Registering for this course, I affirm that I am eligible to attend a defensive driving course for citation dismissal. I understand that “eligibility” means:

  1. I have not attended a defensive driving class for any Arizona citation within 12 months of the date of the citation for which I am now attending.
  2. My traffic violation did not result in a collision that killed or seriously injured any person (serious injury defined in ARS 13-105.34).
  3. I am not currently registered for nor do I plan to attend any other defensive driving course for citation dismissal until such a time as I am again eligible.
  4. I do not possess a Commercial Driver License or, if I do, I was not driving a commercial vehicle at the time of my ticket nor was I driving this vehicle for commercial purposes.
  5. I was not cited for a criminal speeding ticket (21 or more miles over the speed limit).
  6. I did not receive a DPS photo ticket
  7. I was not cited for a violation which occurred while operating a commercial motor vehicle that requires a commercial driver license

I understand it is solely my responsibility to affirm my eligibility. Happy Trails Traffic School has performed an eligibility check as a courtesy to me; however, the results of the check are not absolute. If I am later found ineligible to attend for this citation, the court will not dismiss the citation and all fees paid to attend may not be returned. I understand that by attending defensive driving school for this citation and having the citation dismissed, I am giving up my right to challenge the citation and will be ineligible to attend defensive driving school to have future citations dismissed for 12 months. I understand this dismissal applies to ONLY ONE citation. If I have multiple citations, or I am found ineligible to attend for this citation, I will resolve those citations with the court of jurisdiction.
