*For the live course. The increase price takes effect for any violation on or after May 1, 2015 due to Senate Bill 117 as the CATS Program will now be required to pay $55.00 per participant in lieu of court costs. For violations occurring prior to May 1, 2015, the fee for the LIVE Program will be $100.00. For individuals completing the ONLINE course, there is an additional fee.

Upon successful completion of the CATS Program, the Henderson County Attorney will recommend that the charge be dismissed. As a result, no points are added to the operator’s license. Additionally, no conviction is reported on your motor vehicle record (MVR), which is what insurance companies use to set your insurance rates.

The vast majority of our participants never have to appear in court and hopefully have become a better driver, making our roads safer in Henderson County, Kentucky.
