Frequently Asked Questions

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

Most courts allow you to use our home study traffic school programs.

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.

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 Now!

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 Now!
