PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
Most courts allow you to use our home study traffic school
Some courts do restrict this privilege to certain violators (for
example, disabled or out-of-town violators). Even though Certified
Defensive Driving™ is approved as a home
study alternative in many courts, it is your responsibility to
insure that your court approves home study in your particular
case. If you learned about us from the court everything is OK.
If you learned about us from a friend or newspaper article or
a web browser you should do further checking. Also, you must complete
this course in time to allow us to verify your work and process
papers for delivery to the court. We use standard first class
mail and strongly recommend that you give us seven working days
for this task. If you are pressed for time we can work with you
but we will charge for special handling. Remember that it is up
to you to complete all requirements in time.
WHAT IS HOME STUDY TRAFFIC SCHOOL?
Home study traffic school is an option offered by various courts
to satisfy requirements in the California Vehicle Code to have
your traffic citation resolved without a conviction on your DMV
record. Certified Defensive Driving™
is permitted under the California Vehicle code, Section 42007(c)
as long as the program is authorized by the court in whose jurisdiction
the citation was issued. Register Now! Register
AM I ELIGIBLE FOR A HOME STUDY PROGRAM?
Each court sets its own criteria for home study programs. Some
will allow anyone eligible for traffic school to take a home study
course. Others make it available only to out-of-state violators
or to severely disabled violators. Check the printed materials
you received from your court, or call the court, to be certain
of your eligibility. Register
HOW OFTEN CAN I GO TO TRAFFIC SCHOOL?
A court may refer you to a traffic violator school or a home study
program at any time. However, the California Vehicle Code (see
sections 42005 and/or 1808.7) mandates that only one citation
in an eighteen (18) month period be masked from public view on
your driving record. The eighteen (18) month period is calculated
from citation/violation date not class attendance date. However,
California Vehicle Code section 41501 does allow for a second
trip to traffic school if you receive another violation within
eighteen months of the first violation. Check with your court
to protect yourself. Register
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CERTIFIED
DEFENSIVE DRIVING™ AND REGULAR TRAFFIC SCHOOL?
The big difference is that you can study on your own, at your
own pace, whenever and wherever you choose. You are in charge
of your learning environment and we are told it is a lot of fun.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
CERTIFIED DEFENSIVE DRIVING™ AND OTHER HOME STUDY PROGRAMS?
People like options. CEES Inc. offers you options. Our students
select from a Certified Defensive
Driving™ workbook, a CD-ROM or an on-line
course. All three courses meet or exceed the requirements established
by the California DMV for licensed traffic schools. Register
WHICH PROGRAM IS THE MOST POPULAR?
Frankly, the Internet program is the most popular with the CR-Rom
and the Work Book coming in second and third. Students tell us
they like having the total package immediately. Register
WHO WROTE YOUR PROGRAM?
Michael Barry Ph.D., a licensed traffic school instructor, author,
popular lecturer and a pioneer in edu-tainment training products,
wrote our workbook. The CD-ROM is an interactive version of the
workbook and the Internet course is an extension of the CD-ROM.
Dr. Barry also wrote the lesson plan for the world famous Fun-D-Mental™
Traffic School and for California Traffic Schools™. Fun-D-Mental™
Traffic School is one of four schools allowed to sell its lesson
plan to other California licensed traffic schools. We offer a
very solid program. Register
HOW MUCH DO HOME STUDY COURSES
Certified Defensive Driving™

reasonable $19.95 for our Internet course or $25.00 plus tax for
the Workbook or the CD-Rom program. Register
HOW DO I PAY?
The easiest and fastest way is to pay with a credit card online.
HOW SOON SHOULD I SIGN UP FOR CERTIFIED
As soon as possible. Heck, if you are eligible for Certified
Defensive Driving™ why wait. You cannot
complete the program before you start the program. Remember to
allow plenty of time to complete the course so your CERTIFICATE
of COMPLETION can be delivered to the court before your due date.
WILL MY CITATION BE DISMISSED JUST
LIKE IN REGULAR CLASSROOM TRAFFIC SCHOOL?
Yes. Certified Defensive Driving™
fulfills all the requirements that will result in the dismissal
of your traffic citation, as long as you successfully complete
