If the violation(s) you were cited for is traffic school eligible, you should have received a list of traffic schools enclosed with your violation information notice. Please note that you will be charged a separate fee by the traffic school you attend. If you do not receive a violation information notice or are unsure if your violation qualifies for traffic school, you may contact the Automated Information and Payment Center or visit your nearest Court and obtain that information.

State Traffic School classes last 4 hours and are conducted at various times and locations throughout the Commonwealth. It can take up to six weeks (possibly longer for rural areas) for the driver to be scheduled for a class. If the driver does not complete the class on their scheduled date their license will be suspended. The cost is $15 and the driver must enroll within 30 days of their referral/conviction date in order to avoid suspension of their driving privileges. To enroll or reschedule a missed class online, please choose the appropriate option below.
Once again, the state of California has made this easy for you. The courts require online traffic schools to notify the court electronically and there is nothing else you need to do. Of course, it is a good idea to verify that the court has received your electronic completion certificate. Mistakes can be made and the last thing you want after taking the course is to receive no credit. Make sure you do your due diligence.

The California Vehicle Code (see section VC42005 on this state code page ) states that drivers with a commercial driver's license can only attend traffic school if they were not driving a commercial vehicle. Upon completion, the record of conviction will not be held confidential, but the conviction will not add a point count to the DMV record. Drivers with a commercial driver's license are responsible for contacting the DMV Driver Safety Unit at (916) 657-6452 after completion of traffic school, to insure that the DMV does not assess the point against their record.
Our online 4-hour BDI course is broken up into 7 easy modules. Each module has a required minimum time which allows you to take as much time as you need for each section beyond the minimum time requirement. Once you finish the modules, you can take the final exam up to 3 times until you pass with a grade of 80% or higher. Once you pass your final exam, we will begin processing your certificate of completion. Streaming and DVD courses both have 7 modules with end of module quizzes. Students need an 80% to pass each quiz and have 3 attempts to pass. If you fail 4 times you will have to re-register, but at no additional charge. Also, unlike the regular online course, streaming has no final exam.
