There are relatively few requirements for attending traffic school. In general you may attend if the following applies:
If your driver’s license is a noncommercial license and the court allows you to attend a California Traffic School for an eligible offense, it will change how the offense appears on your record.
In this instance, once you complete the approved traffic school, you’ll receive a confidential conviction, which means that the incident will appear on your driving record with the DMV, but you will not receive the point that hurts your driving record and causes insurance rates to soar.
In certain circumstances, the court may offer traffic school as an option to drivers who have commercial licenses, but only if the offense occurred in non-commercial vehicles. In these instances, the conviction will appear on record with the DMV but the point, again, will not.
It’s important to note that if you do qualify to attend driver school and decide not to do so, your auto insurance rates may be negatively affected by that decision.
Not all California driving offenses, however, qualify for driving school in the state of California. You may not opt for driving school in the following instances:
You’re also ineligible for traffic school if you’ve attended within the past 18 months for another approved offense.
Other reasons exist that would exclude you from using traffic violator school. You can find those in the California Rules of Court. The specific rule is rule 4.104.
You should consult with a qualified attorney if you were deemed ineligible for traffic school and believe you should be eligible. You should never, however, sign up for traffic school without court approval of traffic school attendance ahead of time.
If the court allows you the opportunity to attend traffic school, you must complete the course by the court required date and you should not receive points on your record for the violation.
People with non-commercial driver’s licenses will receive “confidential convictions” on their DMV records while those with commercial driver’s licenses will receive a general conviction both without the corresponding point.
You will be required to pay an administrative fee to the court as well as the traffic school fee for attendance.
You must request permission from the court by the ticket’s due date if you decide to attend traffic school without first going to court.
Once you complete the course, the traffic school will let the DMV know you’ve completed the course so appropriate action on their end can be taken.
