This 6 hour online Defensive Driving program is approved by the Alberta Government for reduction of 3 demerits points from an Alberta operator’s licence. A minimum mark of 80% must be obtained on the final exam to qualify for the demerit point reduction.
This program contains audio, video, and interactive exercises. If you are looking for a comprehensive defensive driving program that also is approved for demerit reduction, then this is it. This program teaches the trademarked SAFER System of Defensive Driving.
In order to receive a reduction in demerits, you are required to successfully complete this course and then register your information online at DriversRegistration.ca. A government notice-of-completion form will be mailed to you within 7 business days. Bring your notice-of-completion form together with your online Defensive Driving program certificate of completion to a local registry office in the province of Alberta. Alberta residents are eligible for a 3 demerit reduction once every 2 years.
Non-Alberta residents can take this program, but they will not qualify to receive the 3 demerit point reduction; they only receive an online course completion certificate.
