Requirements to Take a Florida BDI Course

General Information

All course providers electronically report all Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV)-approved school completions to the FLHSMV. Please allow 24 to 72 hours for school completions to be posted.

FLHSMV does not accept paper certificates for any licensing purpose.

If a driver has been ordered by a court to attend a driver improvement school, they must notify the court once they have completed the school and also provide the necessary documentation to the court.


Mandatory School Requirements

Drivers with a valid Florida driver license who have been convicted of the following offenses in Florida per section 322.0261, Florida Statutes or in another state (sections 322.24 and 322.44, Florida Statutes), are required to attend a basic driver improvement course.

Offenses include:

  • Failure to obey a traffic control signal;
  • Failure to obey a steady red light;
  • Failure to stop for a school bus;
  • Racing on the highway;
  • Racing on the highway Spectator; and
  • Reckless driving.

Drivers have 90 days from the citation date to complete the required school or the driving privilege will be canceled.  The license will remain canceled until  the school requirement is completed.

Completion Certificates

Even though course providers electronically report completions to the FLHSMV, drivers are still required to present the completion certificate to the clerk’s office in the county where the citation was issued. Please consult with the traffic division in the clerk’s office in the county where the citation was issued for their exact requirements.

Drivers can choose to attend a driver improvement course once in any 12-month period and no more than five times in a lifetime.
