You Elect Traffic School when you pay your fine to the clerk of court (in the county where you received the ticket). At the time you pay your fine you fill out a traffic school election form called an affidavit. Then your case remains open until you submit your certificate indicating you completed your course. Then your case is closed and receive no points on your drivers license.
Once the student completes the course, they are required to take a 25 question, multiple-choice quiz. They must get 18 out of 25 correct to pass the course and have their completion reported to the CA DMV. As long as the student provides the correct citation number, traffic court information and driver license; the student’s traffic court will apply the DMV report to their case, mask the ticket, and the point(s) will not go onto the student/driver's record.
