Wireless Communications Device Course




What is the Wireless Communications Device (WCD) course and how do I find a listing of WCD course providers?

Pursuant to Section 316.306(4)(a), Florida Statutes, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) has established a new Wireless Communication Device Course. This course offering will be available for first time offenders cited for using a wireless communication device in a handheld manner while driving in a designated school crossing, school zone or work zone.

First time offenders may voluntarily elect this course with the clerk of court. Drivers must also inform the clerk of court of the county the citation was issued they are electing this course.

Drivers are required to complete a WCD course approved by FLHSMV. Applicants should contact the approved WCD course provider to register, see below.

Upon completion of the WCD course, the penalties and costs associated with the infraction may be waived by the clerk of the court and the assessment of points must be waived. A driver may elect this course only once.

The Wireless Communications Device Safety course is not considered as one of the five school elections available in the Traffic Offender Elective Program listed in Section 318.14(9), Florida Statutes.

A subsequent texting while driving conviction would be treated as a moving violation thus allowing the election of a Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) course.
