Traffic Safety Program

The RVC Traffic Safety Program is committed to educating individuals on defensive driving best practices to help prevent injuries and potentially save lives. Our program is based on an effective, proven curriculum developed by the National Safety Council (NSC).

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Traffic Safety staff are working from home until further notice.

When you leave a voicemail, please understand that when we return your call, it will come from a restricted phone number, so if you are unable to receive restricted calls or your voicemail is full/not yet set up, we will be unable to assist you by phone.

If you are unable to accept voicemail or receive calls from a restricted number, please email us at for timely assistance.

If you are scheduled for an in-person Traffic Safety Class in April or May, your class has been converted to online. Please email for further assistance.

Rock Valley College offers Traffic Safety classes in Rockford, Belvidere, Dixon, Freeport, and Elizabeth. The classes are usually offered on Saturdays and some weeknights. Please call (815) 921-3940 for specific dates and times in your area.

Classes for companies or groups may be scheduled at other times for customized special presentations. The classes are presented by law enforcement officers, professional educators, and others with specialized training.

Severe Weather Note

The Traffic Safety Program wants you to be safe. If you feel unsafe making the drive due to weather conditions and Rock Valley College remains open for classes, you may call to reschedule your class if there’s enough time left in your court supervision.

If Rock Valley College closes or any of our satellite facilities due to inclement weather, we will automatically reschedule you for the next available class at the same time frame and location, if you have time left in your court supervision. If Rock Valley College remains open, our satellite Traffic Safety class locations may still choose to close. Please be sure to check your local news sources for weather-related closures.
