Distracted driving avoidance course
The Distracted Driver Avoidance Program, unlike our Traffic School Program, does NOT dismiss the citation from the driving record and a conviction will be on your DMV record even if you participate in this program. Oregon State Law prohibits the dismissal of this type of citation via a diversion program.
- 1st Offense - DRIVING WHILE USING A MOBILE ELECTRONIC DEVICE 811.507
- Enter a plea of no contest by the arraignment date and time listed on the citation
If you believe you are eligible for this program, contact the court before your arraignment date to enter a plea of no contest (click the button above). Once entered into the program, you should complete the online class with one of our approved Distracted Driving course providers. (Note: These providers may be different from Traffic School providers.)
How long do I have to complete the program?
Defendants have 120 days from the day they enter the program.
How much are the fees?
The class registration fee(s) are due directly to the class provider. Pricing may vary.
To successfully complete the program defendants must complete the class (and pay the class registration fee to the class provider). A copy of the certificate will typically be filed by the class provider with the court within 48-72 hrs. Defendants are encouraged to keep a personal copy for their record.
Once the program is successfully completed, the court will waive the presumptive fine on the citation (the price on the ticket).
What if I'm not eligible?
If you have already had a conviction for this charge previously, please contact the court to speak with a court clerk regarding your options.
