Defensive Driving - 3 Demerit Reduction Online Training (Alberta Only)


Course Description

Do you need to reduce the number of demerit points on your license? This 6 hour online Defensive Driving program is approved by the Alberta Government for reduction of 3 demerit points from an Alberta driver's license. A minimum mark of 80% must be obtained on the final exam to qualify for the demerit point reduction.

This program contains audio, video and interactive exercises. If you are looking for a comprehensive driving program that also is approved for demerit reduction, then this is it. This program teaches the trademarked SAFER System developed by our Calgary-based defensive driving school.

A government Notice of Completion form will be mailed to you within 7 business days. Bring your Notice of Completion form together with your program certificate of completion to a local registry office in the province of Alberta. Alberta residents are eligible for a 3 demerit reduction once every 2 years.

Non-Alberta residents can take this program, but they will not qualify to receive the 3 demerit point reduction; they only receive an online course completion certificate.

Testing conducted in this online program is designed to reinforce the information presented. A mark of 80% must be achieved in order to qualify for an Alberta 3 demerit reduction from a valid operator's license.

Course Length: Minimum 6 hours as per Alberta Government regulations
