DMV Traffic School List
Upon payment, you will be given 60 days to complete a DMV approved traffic school. Extensions will not be granted. If you fail to complete the traffic school by the due date, a conviction will be reported to the DMV and a point will be added to your driving record. The school will charge a fee that is in addition to the amount paid to the court. To find a DMV licensed Internet, Home Study or Classroom traffic violator school, simply search the DMV's Traffic School Provider look-up system at: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/olinq2/welcome.do . When accessing the above DMV website, click on "Start Search", then "Access the system", the select, "Traffic School List". Click on "Get Traffic School List" then select from drop down list, "Classroom Course, Home Study Course, or Internet Course". Follow the directions to locate a Traffic School.
Holders of commercial driver's licenses, while driving a commercial vehicle, are prohibited from attending traffic school, pursuant to Vehicle Code Section 42005. However, a recent change in the law allows a commercial driver's license holder who receives a violation while driving a non-commercial vehicle to attend traffic school.
You are also not eligible for traffic school if you are charged with an alcohol or drug-related offense. You are not eligible for traffic school if you are charged with a two-point violation.
When you have completed the course, the school will issue you a receipt and notify the DMV that you have completed the class. Upon completion the DMV will notify the court that the school has been completed. It is not necessary for you to send the court a copy of the Certification of Completion.
