Arizona DOT (AZ Department of Transportation)

The Arizona Department of Transportation (AZ DOT) supports all forms of transportation. The AZDOT is responsible for planning, building and maintaining Arizona's many state highways and any Interstate highway system running through Arizona state lines. In addition, the Arizona DOT builds and maintains bridges and services the Grand Canyon Airport. The Arizona Motor Vehicle Division also comprises a large part of the DOT. The ADOT is financed by those who buy fuel, operate private and commercial vehicles, and/or use public transportation services.

If you want to learn all of the driving rules and regulations in Arizona, it is highly recommended that you obtain copy of the official Driver License Manual.

Arizona Certified Defensive Driving Courses

In the state of Arizona, drivers who receive a traffic ticket can attend a driving school, either in-person or online, to have their traffic ticket dismissed. By dismissing their traffic ticket, drivers are able to keep the points associated with their moving violation off of their motor vehicle record. Keeping points off of your driving record is an attractive option because most insurance companies will raise your insurance rates when new points appear on your driving record. Also, in Arizona, if your driving record gains too many points over a short period, your driving privilege can be suspended or cancelled.

Internet Defensive Driving

Here at TrafficSchool.com, we offer an Arizona Supreme Court Approved Online Defensive Driving School course you can take to dismiss almost all moving violations from your driving record. As long as you have not taken defensive driving in the past 2 years, you do not hold a CDL driving license, your traffic ticket did not involve serious injury or death, and your court due date is over one week away, you can most likely take our course. Because our course is online, you have the convenience of taking your classes from home, around your own schedule. The chapters are easy to read, the quizzes are open book, and the price is nice and affordable. To Sign up for our AZ Court Approved course, click here.

  • Arizona Driving Safety Tips

    Arizona is a beautiful state with much to explore and experience, but that experience can be ruined if drivers can't get from point A to point B safely. Exercising some common sense defensive driving techniques while navigating Arizona's highways and freeways can help keep everyone on the road without incident.

    • Keep Safe Space Cushions - Always keep a safe distance between yourself and other drivers. Don't tailgate other drivers and don't ride alongside other drivers for long distances. Be especially careful not do drive in other vehicles' blind spots.
    • Observe the Speed Limit - The speed limits are posted for your safety. Always pay attention to changes in the posted speed limit and be cautious when entering winding roads or sharp turns. Failing to adjust your speed properly can lead to disastrous consequences.
    • Stay Alert and Avoid Distractions - Keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Sounds simple, but there are many distractions that often cause people to forget this safety mantra. Put down your phone, food, and leave the mp3 player alone while you're behind the wheel.
    • Be Prepared - Even though most driving expeditions don't result in catastrophe, you never know what might happen on any given outing. Take care of your vehicle to help prevent breakdowns and always have an emergency kit ready in case the unforeseen happens. Being prepared can seem trivial, but when the time comes, it will pay off immensely.
