I did AARP. I think it was $15-$20. Lots of clicking but not much thinking involved.

+1. Improv is much easier; it requires very minimal clicking.

Did it through safetyserve $25 lots of clicking and voice verification calls about 6-7 times throughout. Lots of clicking, no thinking. Would not recommend. Doing it locally would prob be the most convienient.

I signed up for a class online, had to click next every few minutes. Went to a defensive driving course, was much quicker and easier. Didnt have to do anything.

From my experience local classes are the easiest way out. They may cost a bit more (mine was $30, but they threw in 2 slices of pizza and a coke) Either way you go, it's gonna be boring. I guess it boils down to how much 4 hours of your time is worth.
Personally, I'd rather go through a 2 hour pizza class for $30 than a 5.5 hr online clicking maze of death for $25.

I don't remember for sure, but IIRC you can do it in an hour.

Why do people do this? Is it to get out of paying a ticket? Does anyone know if these things work for out of state tickets?

It's not on EMJC website. It's on AARP. EMJC is just housing it.

It lowers the 'points' on your license. And your insurance rates - now that you're a better driver.
