Distracted driving avoidance course

Waiving Distracted Driving Fine

This program will allow the presumptive fine to be waived if you attend the Beaverton Police Department Distracted Driving Course and pay the class fee. Note Oregon law prohibits courts from dismissing distracted driving citations. The citation will NOT be dismissed and a conviction will be on your DMV record even if you participate in this program.

Eligibility

The only eligibility requirement is you have no previous distracted driving convictions and you sign up for the program by the arraignment date and time on your citation.

Procedure

Call or write to the court before your arraignment date and ask to enroll in this program. You will be given the class information and you must sign up and complete the class on your own. There are on-line class options. You have 120 days from the day you sign up for the program to complete the class and pay the class fee at which point the court will waive the presumptive fine on the citation.
