Got a moving violation ticket then you can take up defensive driving course for any of one violation shown on the ticket, but if you are ticketed driving your motorcycle then to erase that ticket you need to go for Motorcycle Operators Training Course. Eligibility for going for Motorcycle Operators Training Course is same as Defensive Driving or TEA approved driving safety course.
