What is traffic school?

Traffic school is a program where you will receive instruction in driving and traffic safety that can enhance your driving knowledge and skill level. Your successful completion of a course from one of the DMV licensed traffic schools may allow your violation to be masked from public view on your driving record and will remove the point from your record. This can prevent your insurance company from seeing your violation and raising your insurance rates.


The court may grant a request to attend traffic school for an eligible violation if you have not attended for a previous violation that was committed within 18 months (violation date to violation date) of your present violation. You are not eligible for Traffic School if you were driving a commercial vehicle or carrying hazardous material when you were cited.

NOTICE: If you are eligible and decide not to attend traffic school your automobile insurance may be adversely affected. For drivers with a noncommercial driver’s license, 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. For drivers with a commercial driver’s license, one conviction in any 18-month period will show on your driving record without a violation point if you complete a traffic violator school program.


An onsite traffic school provides a classroom setting for instruction. Attendance is required. Home Study traffic schools allow you to learn from teaching materials at home. Online traffic schools allow you to learn through internet based instruction.
