California Traffic Violator School

Student Info

Why Should I Take This Course?

A DMV-licensed California Traffic Violator School course allows you to mask your traffic ticket and prevent points from being added to your public driving record. Successfully completing this course will ensure that your insurance company cannot see your traffic ticket, and therefore can't raise your rate because of it.

A traffic school course is also a great refresher for any driver. It will help you brush up on the basics and learn about new California driving laws that might have been put into place since you got your driver license.

Am I Eligible?

You typically take traffic school, or Traffic Violator School (TVS), 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.

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.
