Someone we know was ticketed recently because they passed a car in a no-pass zone. The MVA told him that he had to take a “driver improvement” course or they would suspend his license. He is now working on it, but he says that it’s really just a combination of common sense and stupidity. The questions are so easy that he thinks he’ll be done with the 11 part course by the end of the week.
You can see the types of questions they ask by looking at the screenshots I’ve included. Also, he said that they might tell you something like, “This incident gives your license this many points,” in one section, and then in the next, ask you, “How many points does this incident put on your license?” Not very challenging, but I suppose that isn’t the point of the course requirement.
This course is not free. It costs $50.00 – just painful enough to make sure you drive more carefully in the future. It’s also pretty nice revenue for the state.
