PCSCC/PCC Defensive Driving Course
Pitt County Safe Communities Coalition in conjunction with Pitt Community College offers the National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course. This course covers a variety of topics for all drivers. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required 3 days prior to the beginning of class.
The Defensive Driving Course will give participants key understanding, skills, and techniques to avoid collisions and reduce future violations. The result is a more responsible driver who grasps best practices to prevent injury and death while operating a motor vehicle. The course is a blended learning program utilizing a multimedia presentation, hazard clips, and animated driving scenarios to give participants the knowledge they can use in real-life situations. Late arrivals are not admitted to class. Certificate of Completion is provided at the end of class. *NOTE: Completion of this course in no way guarantees any privileges or rights under applicable NC laws.

WANTS YOU TO BECOME A SAFER DRIVER
The District Attorney is giving you an opportunity to take a Defensive Driving Course.
If it is determined you are eligible to attend the NSC Defensive Driving Course, you may sign up for one of the courses above. Upon successful completion of the Course the District Attorney will reduce your speeding citation to 9 mph over the posted speed limit.
In order to qualify for the 8 or 4 hour Defensive Driving Course, you must:
(1) Appear in District Court on the date and time shown on your citation and indicate your desire to take the Defensive Driving Course whereupon you will qualify for your case to be continued for 30 days.
(2) Register for the Defensive Driving Course online at Pitt Community College’s Continuing Education & Community Development Division. To register in person visit Greenville Center, 3107 South Memorial Drive Greenville, NC on the corner of Memorial Drive and Dexter Street. Please be sure to bring your ticket (citation number and court date) and drivers license. Pre-registration is required at least 3 days before the class start date.
(3) Return to the District Attorney’s Office before the next appointed court date or appear in District Court on the appointed court date with the Driver Improvement Course completion certificate for the reduction of the citation by the District Attorney.
(4) Students ages 16-18 must present a signed High School Release Form. This is required whether actively in school or not. Contact Lisa Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THIS COURSE CAN BE TAKEN ONLY ONCE EVERY THREE YEARS TO QUALIFY FOR A CITATION REDUCTION.
The fee for the Course will be $100.00 for the 8-hour course and $70.00 for the 4-hour course. The fee is to be paid to Pitt Community College by check, money order or credit card at the time of course registration. No cash will be accepted and the fee is non-refundable. If a student fails to appear for the registered course session, they must re-register and pay another fee for the re-scheduled class. We will not process refunds or transfers for students who fail to attend.
Classes will be held on a Pitt Community College campus. You have the option to sign up for the available class most convenient to your schedule.
IMPACT OF THE COURSE:
Receiving a citation and having it reduced has different implications depending on your prior driving record. The District Attorney’s Office cannot advise you on the exact impact of taking the course on your driving privilege or your insurance status. You may wish to consult an attorney to determine its exact impact.
The Coalition, the District Attorney’s Office, and Pitt Community College will evaluate the impact of the Defensive Driving Course on highway safety in our community. At the time of course registration, you will be asked to authorize use of your name for evaluation purposes. The data collected will be used to determine the effectiveness of the course on driver improvement.
