Q. How do I request traffic school?
A. If you are eligible to take traffic school, you will see an option box on your ticket. By clicking that option box you are requesting/agreeing to take traffic school to dismiss your ticket.
You can do this by mail, phone or the court website.
Q: Am I eligible to take AZ traffic school?
A: If your ticket and/or courtesy notice says that you are eligible to take traffic school AND you haven’t attended traffic school within 12 months, then you are most likely eligible to take the course.
However, no matter what, an approved AZ Traffic School is REQUIRED to officially confirm your eligibility by inspecting a copy of your driver license and actual ticket.
Q: What if I do not have a copy of the actual ticket? Can the school confirm my eligibility a different way?
A: You can call the traffic court and they can fax a copy of the actual ticket to you or to the school. This is THE ONLY way a traffic school can LEGALLY confirm your eligibility.
Q: How often can you take it?
A: You can take AZ traffic school once every 12 months… for infinity.
Q: What do you do in traffic school?
A: Read, listen, and watch material on AZ traffic laws, car facts, defensive driving skills, traffic statistics and more. You will also take a final quiz at the end of the course or, if you are taking our MyImprov.com AZ Course, you will answer 2-3 quiz questions after each chapter. There are 10 chapters in our course.
Q: Can I fail the online course?
A: Yes, but do not fret! You are allowed to copy and paste the course material, so the quizzes/finals are “open book.” As long as you get 20 out of 25 multiple choice questions correct, you pass!
If you happen to fail, then you will have to go to a classroom course to take the course over. Court fees will be forwarded, however, you will not receive a refund for the traffic school fee.
Q: How do you take AZ traffic school online?
A: You can take our MyImprov.com online course on your computer, smart phone or any device that has an internet connection! It is mostly reading… therefore you will be scrolling down the screen for the most part and occasionally watch (optional-only) videos.
Q. Does AZ traffic school erase the ticket and/or points?
A. Completing and passing AZ traffic school will prevent the new points associated with your current traffic ticket from being added to your driving record…it will not remove existing points from your record. Only court-ordered Traffic Survivor School can do that.

A: You need to complete AZ traffic school SEVEN (7) days before your court appearance date.
Q: Oh no! I think it’s too late for me to take AZ traffic school. Is there anything I can do?
