Defensive Driving 3 Demerit Reduction (Alberta)

This 6 hour online Defensive Driving program is approved by the Alberta Government for reduction of 3 demerits points from an Alberta operator’s licence. A minimum mark of 80% must be obtained on the final exam to qualify for the demerit point reduction.


If you are looking for a comprehensive defensive driving program that also is approved for demerit reduction, then this is it. This program teaches the trademarked SAFER System of Defensive Driving. A government certificate will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days. Take your government certificate to a local registry office within the province of Alberta. Alberta residents are eligible for a 3 demerit reduction once every 2 years. Non-Alberta residents can take this program, but they will not qualify to receive the 3 demerit point reduction; they only receive an online course completion certificate.
