Safety Training Option Program

What is the STOP Program?

The Safety Training Option Program (STOP) was implemented in 1992. Currently the Nebraska Safety Center contracts with jurisdictions throughout the state of Nebraska. STOP is provided to individuals who have been ticketed for committing a minor traffic violation. If a person is cited for a minor violation, the individual has the option of taking a 4-hour STOP course. By participating in the course the violator pays no fine, has no court appearance, and has no points assessed against his/her record and has the opportunity to improve their driving ability.

What are the benefits of this class?
By participating in the course the violator pays no fine, has no court appearance, has no points assessed against their record and can improve their driving habits!

Where can I find more information on this class?
For further information on the STOP Program or a registration form, please contact the Nebraska Safety Center at (800) 854-7867 ext 1, or click on the county that you received your citation in:

For more information contact Marshall Barth
