Child Passenger Safety Diversion Class
Dec 17 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

This is an educational program offered to drivers who have received a ticket for not having a child properly restrained in their motor vehicle.

Classes are held on the third Thursday of each month from 11am-1pm at Wilmington Fire Station 3 (114 Cinema Dr, Wilmington, NC 28403).

To be eligible for citation dismissal, the driver will need to attend this class where they will receive one-on-one hands on education from a nationally certified technician and will learn more about North Carolina child passenger safety law.

The driver that received the citation must be who schedules and attends the class prior to their court date.

One the day of class please bring:

  • The child and the appropriate car seat for the child
  • Citation
  • Drivers License

At the class, the technician issues a certificate for the driver to present to the District Attorney’s Office on the court date for dismissal of the citation and a waving of fines. This is a one-time opportunity for the driver.

For questions regarding the Diversion Program, please contact Julia Phelps at jphelps@nhcgov.com or 910-798-6636.
