Traffic School

Help Me Find...

In general, you may attend traffic school if you have not attended traffic school in California in the past 18 months and have a valid California license. Your courtesy notice will say if you are eligible for traffic school

If you qualify for traffic school:

It is your responsibility to make sure that the court receives your completed traffic school certificate.

  • If you attended an online traffic school, the court will receive an electronic certificate from the online school.

NOTICE: If you are eligible and decide not to attend traffic school your automobile insurance may be adversely affected. One conviction in any 18-month period will be held confidential and not show on your driving record if you complete a traffic violator school program.

If you have attended traffic school in past 18 months, you may appear in court to ask to attend the second offender traffic school. This is a 12-hour traffic school course, which will still appear on your record even if you attend the course.
