Completion of the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving 8-Hour Course can be used for up to a 4 point reduction on a driver's Motor Vehicle Record. (This information only applies to individuals with a valid South Carolina Driver’s License.) The point reduction applies to however many points are on your record at the time of the class. Once point reduction is requested & submitted, you cannot receive point reduction again for 3 years from the date of the class.
If a South Carolina driver receives 12 or more points, the driver can avoid suspension by attending a defensive driving course to reduce 4 points. They will have 30 days from the date of the suspension notice until the date the suspension begins. Once the suspension begins, the point reduction will not cancel the suspension. Points may only be reduced once in a three-year period. If the violation date is before the Defensive Driving Course completion date, credit of up to four points will be given. All violations occurring after the completion date of the course will not be accepted.
NOTICE FOR OUT-OF-STATE PARTICIPANTS: Individuals taking the DDC-8hr class with a driver's license other than SC should take the class in the state where they reside or be responsible for submitting all paperwork to their state. Neither the college nor the SC Chapter NSC office will handle any information pertaining to a defensive driving course being completed for another state other than South Carolina.
