Michigan motorists ticketed for minor traffic offenses such as speeding, improper passing or disobeying a stop sign may qualify to have the points kept off their driving records if they pass an online driver improvement course.

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said Wednesday in a release that the course can be used only once to avoid points.

Eligible drivers have 60 days to arrange to take and pass the course and may retake it as many times as needed within that period. If they can't pass the course, the points and violation go on their record.

The state has 10 course providers that can charge up to $100 for the course.

Drivers in the program still must pay fines and court costs for the traffic violation. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
