California Traffic School
You can take our traffic school program to meet your requirement for a ticket you got in Kern County. Safe2Drive is approved by all courthouses of the Kern County Supreme Court. The court locations are located on the right-hand side of this web page. Click on your court
and register to get started. The course is straightforward and easy to get done. At the end there will be a short exam. We will automatically send your completion notice to your court within minutes after you pass the exam. The exam is easy, and you can take it as many times
as necessary at no extra charge. Most people, however, pass the first time.
Eligibility for Traffic School
You are eligible for traffic school if your ticket is for a normal traffic violation (e.g., speeding), and you have not attended traffic school in the last 18 months. You must also hold a valid driver's license. The court determines your eligibility and will notify you in the courtesy notice or on their web site.
Drivers with commercial licenses are not eligible for traffic school.
How It Works
Within a few weeks of getting the traffic citation, you should receive a Courtesy Notice indicating your fine amount or, if a mandatory appearance is required, your court appearance date and time. You should receive the Courtesy Notice at least 10 days prior to the appearance date. Remember, should you fail to receive a Courtesy Notice, appear on or before the appearance date given on your citation.
The Courtesy Notice will indicate whether or not you are eligible for traffic school and the instructions for taking care of the ticket. A list of approved schools is also included. You will be required to pay an administrative fee to the court
for the privilege of going to traffic school. This fee is separate from any fee you pay a traffic school.
Juvenile traffic misdemeanors are still handled by the Juvenile Court, 2100 College Avenue, Bakersfield, California (near the County Health Dept. on College and Mt. Vernon.)
Safe2Drive's traffic school and defensive driving programs are approved in nearly all counties in California.
