Most of us take the privilege of driving for granted while relying on in for a wide array of daily activities. Being unable to drive is impractical for many of us; it is usually our way to work, school, shopping, and so many other necessities of life.

It may be possible to discredit the original traffic violations for which the license suspension was issued, or reduce your penalties through a favorable negotiation.

Completing this program may reduce points to the threshold at which a suspension will no longer be issued.
