How do I request traffic school?
You can request traffic school online, by mail, by phone, in person at the Clerk's Office windows, or at your court arraignment hearing if you are eligible. It is your responsibility to determine if you are eligible to attend traffic school. You are required to pay the bail amount listed on your notice, and pay an additional non-refundable traffic school processing fee of $64. You will have 64 days to complete traffic school. To attend traffic school, you must meet all of the following requirements:
  • You have not attended traffic school for a ticket issued within 18 months of the date of the ticket;
  • You must have a valid driver’s license;
  • If speeding, your speed was not more than 25 mph over the speed limit;
  • The offense is a moving (driving) violation that carries only one point; and
  • You were not driving a commercial vehicle or carrying hazardous material.
NOTE: Upon completion of traffic school, the school will electronically send your completion certificate to the DMV. The court will then download the certificate from the DMV. It is highly recommended that you verify that the court received your certificate of completion. You may do so by looking up your ticket on this website at least a week after you completed the course. If you sign up for traffic school and the court does not receive the completion certificate by the due date, the case will be closed and a conviction will appear on your driving record. If you are not eligible to attend traffic school but do anyway, the conviction will be reported on your driving record and there will be no refund of any fees paid. You are not eligible if the violation carries more than one point. Common violations that count for more than one point include:
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Failing to stop at an accident scene
  • Speeding in excess of 100 miles per hour
  • Reckless driving
  • Engaging in speed contests
