What is the Traffic Safety Program?

The Traffic Safety Program, enacted by the Illinois Supreme Court and guided by the conference of Chief Judges, has been adopted by the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. This program is intended to improve your driving skills, decrease the possibility of future traffic law violations, and reduce the chance you or someone else may be killed or injured in a traffic accident.

 

 

What is the Benefit of Choosing the Traffic Safety Program?

The program allows eligible drivers to receive court supervision for minor traffic offenses. If you successfully complete the Traffic Safety Program, your traffic offense will not be entered as a conviction on your driving record. Instead, it will be reported to the Secretary of State as "Court Supervision," which does not negatively impact your driving record. 

Defensive Driving Courses

The Traffic Safety Program offers Defensive Driving courses for either:

  1. Drivers of all ages who have received a single ticket violation
  2. Drivers ages 16–21 who have had a license suspended by the Secretary of State
