Traffic Ticket in Other North Carolina Counties


Where you receive your traffic ticket has everything to do with what your options may be. District attorneys responsible for the prosecution of traffic cases in 78 of North Carolina’s 100 counties participate in the Safety and Health Council’s Safe Driving Programs. Defensive Driving Clases ( 4 Hour, Alive at 25, 8 Hour) are offered through the local NC community colleges. All classes are standardized and you may take the class at your nearest or most convenient location. To explore your options, first determine the county in which you were ticketed, each county and proscutorial district is different in what class they require. (If you do not know which class is required contact the clerk of court's office in the county you receive your ticket.)
