The Traffic Education Program was established in South Carolina to educate drivers while giving them the opportunity to have eligible traffic tickets dismissed and keep their driving records clean.
- ELIGIBILITY: The offender must have less than 4 points on their current driving record, and the ticket must be a 4 point or less violation.
- REQUIREMENTS: The offender must complete four hours of community service, attend a TEP approved four hour defensive driving class and cannot have any new traffic citations for six months from the date of the original violation.
- COMPLETION: Upon successful completion of the assigned requirements in TEP, the court will be notified to dismiss the ticket. Should the participant fail to complete the program, the ticket will be referred back to the original court for prosecution.
