According to azdrive.com, in order to be eligible for an Arizona Defensive Driving Course there must be at least 12 months since your last violation which was dismissed by taking a defensive driving course. Drivers involved in a collision resulting in death or serious injury are not eligible. Commercial Drivers License holders and drivers cited while driving a vehicle that requires a CDL are not eligible for defensive driving.
7 Day Rule
All Arizona courts require you to complete the course at least 7 days prior to your due date. If this date is close you might want to contact the court to see if you are eligible for an extension.
In order to complete the registration process you will be asked to upload, email, text, or fax:
Copy of your traffic citation
Copy of your government issued identification
Full payment for the program prior to the start of class
You will be able to log in and out of the course as often as you like. Any time you log out of the course your progress will be saved automatically and you will be able to start where you left off when you log back in. The course is a minimum of 4 hours in length.
Once you have agreed to the terms of the course and begun the course, the State of Arizona requires that there be no refunds for any court or state fees unless:
a) an officer fails to file a citation with a court and the cited person attends a diversion course for that citation;
b) when a citation is dismissed by a jurisdictional court on its own motion, for technical problems that are not correctable under civil traffic rules (rules of the court);
