NSC Illinois Graduate to Safety Driver Remedial Education Program engages you in our simple and fun defensive driving techniques through our Alive at 25 curriculum. Alive at 25 is a highly interactive four-hour intervention program that zeroes in on drivers ages 16 to 25 – the group most likely to be involved in a fatal collision. Alive at 25 Driver Safety Course uses workbook exercises, group discussions, role-playing and short lectures to help keep young drivers safe on the road.
Once you complete the IL Graduate to Safety Driver Remedial Education Program, National Safety Council electronically transmits your class completion information to the Illinois Secretary of State the very next business day following your successful class completion.
Please Note: If you are taking a course to satisfy a court order, you must deliver your certificate to your court.
A driver under age 21, who is convicted of two or more moving violations within a 24-month period, will have his/her driver’s license suspended for a minimum of 30 days. The length of the suspension varies according to the seriousness of the traffic offenses. A driver may be required to complete a Driver Remedial Education Course as part of reinstatement of driving privileges. This information will be indicated on the suspension notice.
This mandatory requirement for reinstatement of your driving privileges is your participation in an approved Graduate to Safety Driver Remedial Education course. Failure to attend and complete this course will prohibit the reinstatement of your driving privileges.
If you are required by the State of Illinois to complete the course, the Illinois Secretary of State Driver Services Department will mail you a notification letter.
