CA Traffic School

Overview

Mask the Ticket

Take this course if you want to mask a traffic violation and keep it confidential.

Am I Eligible?

You typically take CA traffic school after you get a ticket. You are eligible for traffic violator school if:

  1. You have a valid driver license (normal Class C; not a commercial license *).
  2. You were ticketed for a moving violation (e.g., speeding, red light).
  3. You have not taken traffic school for a ticket you got in the last 18 months (from citation date).
  4. You have paid all fees.

* If you hold a commercial driver license you may be eligible for Traffic Violator School (TVS) if you received the ticket on or after January 1, 2013, you were not driving a commercial vehicle when you received the ticket, and you have a referral from the court to attend TVS.

Note: The court may not order that the record of conviction be kept confidential. However, the conviction shall not be added to a violation point count for purposes of determining whether a driver is presumed to be a negligent operator under Section 12810.5.

Register

Registration is fast and easy -- only two minutes! Create a username and password. Use your username and password to access the course as often as you want. We provide an unlimited number of logins.

Complete the Course

Our course consists of 10 lessons and includes lecture material, animations, and videos. You can complete the course at your own pace: a little at a time or all in one sitting. Each time you login, we automatically take you to where you last left off.

Validation Questions: During registration, you will be asked to answer several multiple choice questions (for example, "Which of these colors do you like best?"). After each lesson in the course, you will be required to answer one of these questions with the same answer you gave during registration. You must answer 70% of the questions correctly to proceed with the course. Safe2Drive is required to do this to ensure you are indeed taking the course.

Pay

We offer several convenient payment options: credit card, debit card, or check by mail.

Pass the Exam

The California Department of Motor Vehicles allows students two attempts to pass the final exam, however most students pass the exam the first time. The final exam is "open book" allowing you to review any material in the course before answering a question.

Safe2Drive does not charge any additional fees to take the final exam a second time. If you happen to fail the final exam twice, the California DMV requires you to register and take this course again. Safe2Drive will not issue refunds for students who fail the final exam twice.

Complete the Course Evaluation

After you have passed the final exam and before your Receipt of Completion can be issued, you will be required to complete a short evaluation of our course, provided by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Although you are only required to fill out your first and last name on this evaluation form, we strongly encourage you to take the time to fill the form out in its entirety. Safe2Drive sincerely values the feedback and opinions (both positive and negative) that we receive from students who have taken our course.

Get Your Receipt of Completion

We will process your completion to the court electronically after passing the final exam. You will be able to print a Receipt of Completion for your records. Once the court has received and reviewed your completion, they will notify the DMV. The DMV will then mask (hide) the points on your driving record. No one, including the insurance companies, will see your ticket. Remember to check with your court 7-10 business days after you complete the course to make sure they have processed your completion!
