From students who took our Defensive Driving Courses in Hawaii.
Very helpful defensive driving course. I feel better equipped to handle dangerous situations after taking this course.
Kristine R., HI
I think this is a great way to present the necessary material for the defensive driving course. The classroom environment is not always the best way to take this course as the course can lag due to the poor presentation of the instructor. I would recommend this to anyone.
Paul G., HI
Excellent course set up, but more importantly, excellent customer service!

Barry C., HI
The material was well written and to the point, it was relatively easy to read and understand. The Pit Stop humor added fun to the course. Overall, I enjoyed taking the course and would recommend it.
Robert Z., HI
I preferred the online course vs the classroom. During the online course if you need a break, you can get up and walk around and then go back to where you left off. I was able to break it up and work it around my busy schedule.
Donna P., HI
This course is quite informative and very helpful for drivers.
Shelley M., HI
Great job putting together a well designed online traffic course. I was really entertained by learning and refreshing my defensive driving knowledge.
It was very easy to read and understand, the humor was a good touch that kept it interesting.
Tyler O., HI
Great course, I really liked the comic side of the course. Made things more interesting. Loved the convenience of being able to do a chapter at a time and come back when I felt like it. Much better than a classroom setting. After receiving my law degree I swore I would never step into another class so this method was perfect. I will use this program again when my time is up and will recommend this class to others.
Steven S., HI
This was convenient, entertaining and taught well.

Very informative course and an excellent review of driving laws. I would highly recommend this course!

I learned some things I didn’t know and it gives me understanding about driving and knowing the laws.

I really like the internet course.

In the following information you will learn about defensive driving school and who to contact in Hawaii for more information.
Hawaii Traffic School

The defensive driving class is offered in a classroom setting as well as online. You will have the option in most circumstances to choose what is more convenient for you.

The Hawaii traffic court will let you know if you are a good candidate for traffic school or a driver improvement course based on your specific situation.

If you are ultimately approved to complete the course you will be given a deadline by the court to complete it online or in a classroom.
