However, your court has assigned a due date in which to complete your traffic school and you must complete the course and pass the final exam prior to your deadline. If you can’t make the deadline, you will need to contact the court for an extension.

How long will it take to complete the course?
All online traffic schools are mandated to have 8 hours of instructional material. DMV requires that you spend a minimum amount of time in the course material. We understand that students read and study at different paces, but must follow the legal requirements.

How do I get to the final exam?
You must pass a quiz at the end of each section with a score of 70% or better before you can reach the final exam. If you do not pass a quiz you will be required to re-read that section and then re-take the quiz. You may repeat the quizzes as many times as necessary.

Will my course or username expire?

Can you fax or mail my completion certificate directly to the court for me?
DMV requires that we transmit your completion certificate directly to them. Once DMV receives your completion certificate and confirms your eligibility, they will mask your traffic citation on your California driving record. We will also provide you with a completion certificate for your records.

Do you offer a Spanish course?
Sorry, we do not offer a Spanish course at this time.

What are the ‘hidden messages’?

What are ‘personal identity’ questions?
