Default Florida Safe Driving Class Lifetime Limit

How many times can I choose to attend a driver improvement course?
You may choose to take a driver improvement course once in any 12-month period (calculated from the date of your traffic violation and not by calendar year) and no more than 5 times in your lifetime (Florida Statutes, 318.14(9)).
Is there a website that tells how many times a person has taken the safe driver class already? Asking for a friend....

i would imagine any moron should be able to remember if they took a class 1-5 times! if your traffic tickets are so many that your loosing count, you might want to reconsider your actions!

thats what i would tell my friend!

Over 40 years I hear it's not easy to remember whether you've been to the class 3 or 4 times.... One or less tickets per decade isn't bad as far as I am concerned...

Your "friend" might be able to Google the Clerk of Court website for his/her county, enter their name, and see how many times they were cited and used the driving school option.

Granted, it doesn't give an instant answer and it might take you (I mean him/her) 1/2 hour or so to go thru all the tickets received, but the good news is said person will not be on the roads driving like an ass-hole during this time.

The Seminole County Clerk traffic citation records online are wrong/incomplete. Which raises the question, who is keeping track of this information and enforcing the lifetime limit if it's incomplete/invalid at the county level?

When was the 5 limit rule implemented?
The county may simply not want to go back and computerize records prior to a certain date or ignore prior infractions, before the 5 rule was implemented.
