Defensive Driving School
Youth Defensive Driving School
Defensive Driving School (DDS) is offered to anyone 21 years old or younger who receive a moving violation but has never had a ticket. The youth who received the moving violation must attend court on the assigned court date to ask the Judge and to sign up for driving school.
Adult Defensive Driving School
DDS is offered to any adult who has not received a ticket in the past three years and have a valid Mississippi License. The adult must pay the cost of the ticket plus $10, and the cost of the class, $45.00.
IF YOU HAVE A CDL LICENSE YOU CAN NOT ATTEND DEFENSIVE DRIVING SCHOOL.
Upon Completion of the Class
Once the class has been completed, the instructor will issue a certificate that you must bring back to the court clerk’s office the following Monday after the class.
Once the certificate has been received by the Court Office, the ticket will be dismissed (in the youth’s case) or not reported to the State (in the adult’s case).
