TRAFFIC SCHOOL QUESTIONS:
Upon successful completion of the course (including passing the final exam), we will electronically report your completion directly to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
If you fail the final exam on your first attempt, you will have the opportunity to retake it. After two failed attempts, your account will be disqualified, and you may take another traffic violator school course, if court continuance time allows. This procedure has been established by regulations of the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
But don't worry. Our informative course is straightforward and fun. And from the "Student Center," you'll have access to completed chapters, so you can review. Plus, the final exam is "open-book," so you can look back through the material if your noggin needs a quick refresh.
Yes, at the end of the program you must pass a DMV-required 25-question final exam. You must correctly answer at least 70% of the final exam questions in order to successfully complete the course.
The DMV requires online traffic school courses to contain at least 42,500 words, and the course is designed to be equivalent to classroom courses that take 340 minutes (not including the final exam) to complete. However, an online course offers you the convenience of not having to complete the course in one sitting. The computer tracks your completed chapters as you proceed through the program. If you log out and then sign back in, you'll be taken to our "Student Center" (table of contents) page. There you'll be able to continue with the course right where you left off. You'll even be able to access completed chapters for review.
We promise you'll love the ease and simplicity of our program! Our easy-to-read Internet course is entertaining, informative, and loaded with colorful graphics, video clips, and interactive activities. And we fill the course with hilarious traffic jokes to make the experience more enjoyable. We want you to laugh while you learn!
When you receive information regarding your traffic citation in the mail, the paperwork will indicate your option to attend traffic school. If this option is listed (or if you know you haven't attended in the last 18 months), simply pay the court's administrative fee and you can get started right away. You may not attend traffic school to mask a point if: you attended traffic school within the previous 18 months, if the conviction was for a major (2-point) violation, or if you were operating a vehicle requiring commercial licensure at the time of the violation.
Drivers who hold a commercial driver license are eligible to attend traffic school to mask a point from their driving records only if they were operating a non-commercial vehicle at the time of the violation. Drivers may not attend traffic school to mask a point if they were operating a vehicle requiring commercial licensure. Further, for commercial licensees, the masked point will only be disregarded with respect to determining a "negligent operator" designation; by law, the record of the conviction would still be disclosed to employers and to insurance providers.
Commercially licensed drivers who successfully complete traffic school are responsible for contacting the DMV Driver Safety Unit (916) 657-6452) to ensure that the point has been masked from their records.
If you attend traffic school even though you are not eligible to mask a point, the DMV will not mask the conviction/point on your driving record.
Yes, this traffic violator school (TVS) program has been officially licensed by the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles for use statewide.
Education experts will fuss a lot about using humor to "hold students' attention" and "facilitate information retention." But, let's face it, you're really on our site because you want to have a GREAT time while you attend traffic school. We'll keep you entertained, and the time will fly by as our hilarious course has you laughing while you learn. We know that you could take any old traffic safety course; but you want the one that you can "cruise" through, not one that "drives" you crazy!
By attending a traffic violator school (TVS) you will mask a conviction on your driving record. Points visible on your record can result in higher insurance premiums, future license suspensions, and the loss of certain driving related jobs. In the meantime, you might just learn something that will make you a safer driver—and perhaps even save your life!
