Course Description

This course can provide students up to a 4-point reduction on their driver’s license. The class can be taken every 3 years. Please call for more information: 803-778-6656 or email

After successful completion of the course, and within 2-3 business days, the National Safety Council will send your information to the South Carolina DMV to remove up to 4 points from your driving record. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing.

You will be able to check your driving record online through the SCDMV’s website ( and confirm your points have been removed. The SCDMV website can take 3-4 weeks to update.

You will receive your certificate at the end of class which can be used for potential insurance rate discounts. Be sure to keep your certificate and send a copy to your insurance agent.

If you need point reduction for another state, you will need to follow that state’s specific requirements. Make sure to keep a copy of your certificate to send to your out-of-state DMV. Each state has a specific process they will need you to follow, and it is important for you to follow their requirements precisely.
