Traffic School Details

Golfers call it a mulligan, kids call it a do over, and for Florida drivers Traffic School is similar. Whether it be speeding or running a red light we all make mistakes and traffic school is an easy way to minimize the ramifications. Florida's system allows you to take our DMV approved courses online, receive no points, and protect your insurance. You can use this driving school option once in a 12 month period and five (5) times in your life.

Drivers take a traffic school course for many reasons. In Florida, the most common reason is avoid being assigned points on your driver record for a speeding ticket or a moving violation. Examples of a moving violation are running a stop sign or an illegal U turn. For most tickets in Florida that do not involve an accident you can take traffic school known as the four hour basic driver improvement course.

How Long is Traffic School?

A common question we are asked is "How long is the course?" or "Do I really have to spend four hours?" As the name suggests, the state of Florida requires you spend four hours. The good news is that with the course online you can do a little at a time. As you move through your traffic school class our system saves your time. So you can logout at any time, come back and pick up where you left off.

Getting Your Traffic School Certificate Fast

Many people procrastinate when it comes to traffic school. This creates a situation where you cannot wait to receive your certificate via regular mail. In those cases you can order your certificate via email and get it the same day. Of course if you give yourself plenty of time you can request your certificate via regular mail which is free. Email delivery costs $9.95.

Once you receive your certificate it is your responsibility to deliver it to the clerk of court in the county where you received your ticket. This is what proves you completed traffic school. When the clerk receieves your certificate they will close your case and withhold adjudication, which means you will not be found guilty of the infraction and no points will be assigned to your driver's license.

Completing Traffic School Makes Sense

If you have a Florida drivers license and get a ticket that is eligible for Traffic School we highly recommend you complete our basic driver improvement course. A single 3-point ticket may not seem like a big deal but it can put you just two tickets away from a license suspension and could drive your insurance up dramatically. Complete our simple online traffic school course - we guarantee it will be easier that you think and you'll like the results.
