Payment And Refund Policy
You may pay for your order by Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) or Bank Check Card. The accepted methods of payment may change at DriveSafeToday.com, Inc.’s sole discretion. Your card will be authorized for the full amount of your purchase at the time of your order. This may cause an immediate reduction in your funds or increase in your credit line, even if your order is later canceled, as the credit and debit card issuing banks release authorizations at their discretion. Your credit or debit card is generally charged upon receipt of your order.
To obtain a full refund of fees paid to DriveSafeToday.com, Inc., log into your account and click on ‘Cancel Course’ next to the course that you wish to cancel. You may only request a refund after you have made payment and before you begin the final exam. Once a final exam is started, you cannot request or obtain a refund of any fees paid to DriveSafeToday.com, Inc. A final exam shall be considered started at the time that you land on the final exam screen, whether or not you have answered any questions. Regarding the Texas Defensive Driving Course, the course is considered complete, and thus non-refundable, upon passing the final quiz, "Alcohol and Traffic Safety Quiz".
A refund requested within 4 months of the initial purchase date will be granted in the same form of payment used to pay for the course. If you paid with a credit or debit card, the funds will be credited back to the same credit or debit card used for payment – please allow at least 72 hours for the credit to be processed.

Florida Driving Record Policy
Florida driving records are valid for Florida-licensed drivers only and will not include any information pertaining to any previously held license or licenses from other states. When requesting records, you must select a reason for the request. Personal information will only be released to individuals that request their own records. For all other requests, the personal information will be blocked. Since Drive Safe Today has to pay for each request to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) for driving records, refunds/reimbursements will not be considered or given for any incorrect/invalid driver’s license number that has been input during registration. Also, no refunds/reimbursements will be considered or given for multiple orders for driving records due to user error. Refunds/reimbursements will also not be provided for those records where the personal information is blocked.
The Driver's Privacy Protection Act ("DPPA") makes personal information contained in motor vehicle or driver license records confidential and exempt from disclosure. Personal information from these records may only be released to individuals or organizations that quality under one of the exemptions provided in DPPA. DriveSafeToday will only provide personal information if you are requesting your own driving record. If requesting someone else's record, personal information will NOT be included in the driving record DriveSafeToday provides to you. However, it will have a valid Florida driver’s license number listed which is easily verifiable by the Florida DHSMV. Any requests for refunds/reimbursements will not be considered or given with regards to any objections to this matter. You assume all risks regarding its intended use and no refund/reimbursements will be considered or granted if you cannot use the driving record.
