The California state government does not operate an online traffic school of their own. In fact, all traffic school courses, whether online or off, are operated by private companies. Why does this matter for you? Well, some of these private companies take their traffic school courses serious and some don’t. You need to make sure you do some research in order to find the highest quality traffic school for the cheapest price.
Course Timers Are No Longer Required – Some outdated online traffic schools will have a course timer throughout the course. What does this mean? Basically, you’ll have to stay on each page of the course for a pre-determined amount of time before you can progress forward. This was a state requirement a few years ago but has since been removed. All the state cares about now is that you pass the course and complete all tests and quizzes in a timely manner, so make sure your course does not have these annoying timers.

Regardless of your reason for taking traffic school, you'll gain valuable knowledge about defensive driving techniques, California traffic laws, and how to avoid receiving more traffic tickets in the future. Any time you are involved in a accident, you'll want to complete a Report of Traffic Accident Occurring in California (Form SR 1). This is also known as an SR1 Form.
