Course Information

SOUTH CAROLINA POINT REDUCTION Completion of the National Safety Council s Defensive Driving 8 Hour Course can be used for up to a four point reduction on a driver s Motor Vehicle Record. This information only applies to individuals with a valid South Carolina Drivers License. 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.
