How Does California Online Traffic School Work
You got a traffic violation ticket, also known as a moving violation.
If you didn't know already, getting a traffic ticket in California can be stressful, time consuming, irritating, expensive but it's a very common occurrence.
Traffic School Explained
Traffic school, commonly referred to in many states as defensive driving school, is a course that’s meant to be a refresher. The course is meant to teach you everything you know, should know, and may not know about driving laws. It also reminds licensed drivers of the best driving practices that keep everyone safer on the road.
It’s a completely voluntary course, but the devil is in the details. Trust us when we say, there are good reasons why you should take the course.
Drivers Take Traffic School/ Defensive Driving School to Get a Traffic Ticket Dismissed
You don’t go to traffic school to get a ticket dismissed. You go either online, or in person to avoid that violation from going on your driving record in the form of a point. This point is added to your states driving record and can and will have an adverse effect on your insurance rates.
Attending traffic school is based on the type of moving violation you were cited for.
The court will send you a letter, (please be aware, they do not have to send you a letter) which will outline your violation, your options, your assigned court, and how much you’ll need to pay.
If you have the option to attend traffic school that means you’re being given a chance to keep the violation off of your driving record. Take IT!
