    ATLANTA, GA, February 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta traffic ticket lawyers at Sam McRae Law know that taking a defensive driving course can offer Georgia drivers a variety of benefits, some of which are universal and some of which are specific to Georgia law.

The most obvious benefit of a defensive driving course is that it can help you to improve your skills as a driver. You will learn how to drive safely and responsibly either through a basic review of laws or through extensive hands-on training. The duration and complexity of your class will depend largely on the class you choose and your reasons for picking it.

Even a very basic defensive driving class can reduce your auto insurance premium by between 10 and 15 percent, as long as you have had a clean driving record for three years. Since this can amount to major savings, the Atlanta speeding ticket lawyers recommend that all drivers with a clean record attend a defensive driving class to receive this easy deduction.

Georgia law often requires defensive driving courses to be completed in a variety of Atlanta traffic ticket and other driving-related cases.

According to Sam McRae, Attorney at Sam McRae Law, "You can be ordered to take a defensive driving class to have a ticket dismissed, get your driver's license reinstated, receive a point reduction on your license or as a part of a court-ordered sentence."

If you are required to take a defensive driving course, the Department of Driver Services will typically require you to attend a class in person for six hours. Classes can be found across the Atlanta metro area to satisfy this requirement. Learn more at
