Taking traffic school in California can be a hassle, and if you’ve never done it before, you may not know where to start. Follow this guide to find out your California traffic school eligibility requirements, and the steps you need to take in order to minimize the effects of that traffic ticket.

The Point System in California

If you aren’t careful, an accumulation of points and violations on your driver’s license could lead to suspension of your driving privileges! Each traffic incident rates a different point amount. Some of these include:

  • Minor moving violations (1 point)
  • Reckless driving (2 points)
  • Driving on a suspended license (2 points)
  • DUI or DWI (2 points)

Once you have accumulated 4 points in a year or 6 points in 2 years, the DMV will suspend your driver’s license. That’s why it’s a good idea to mask traffic violations with a California traffic school course. The course we offer meets all California court traffic school requirements. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

Step 1: Determine Your Eligibility

When you have received a traffic ticket, the California DMV will send you a notice of eligibility stating whether you are qualified to hide the infraction with a California DMV-licensed traffic school course.

To meet California traffic school eligibility requirements, you must:

California DMV-Licensed
  • Have a valid California driver’s license
  • Have a minor moving violation

As the state of California only allows a traffic school course once every 18 months, you will NOT be eligible if you have previously taken a course within the last year and a half. Similarly:

  • You are NOT eligible if you have a commercial driver’s license
  • You are NOT eligible if your citation is alcohol-related
Step 2: Plead Guilty

After the state has sent you a notice of eligibility, your next step is to plead guilty to the violation to your court, and request permission to take a California DMV-licensed traffic school. You must contact your court before the appearance date listed on your traffic ticket (unless you opt to make a court appearance, or your violation is such that a court appearance is required).

Step 3: Enroll in Your Course!

Once the court has granted you permission for traffic school, you may enroll in and complete your California online traffic school course. Many CA courts will give you a deadline by which you must have your course completion reported. The course we provide is entirely self-paced, but don’t forget to finish it before the date that your court gives you!

Step 4: Submit Your Certificate

We process your course completion the very day you finish your final exam, and report your completion to the DMV for you – you don’t have anything else to worry about! If you’d like a copy of your Proof of Completion, we have a number of affordable delivery options available, including instant download.

Step 5: Check Your Driving Record

It’s important to ensure that you receive credit for your course, and that your violation is not on your public driving history. Wait a few weeks before pulling a copy of your driving record, and check to see that your ticket doesn’t show up.

Insurance Benefits!

You may also take a traffic school course voluntarily to receive a discount on your auto insurance premium! Many insurance providers give discount to safe drivers who take a defensive driving or traffic school course. Contact your insurance company and ask how much of a discount they would offer, and how long it would be in effect. Then simply sign up for your online California Traffic School course and start on your way to long-term cost savings!
