What is the Traffic Violator School (TVS)?

Online TVS is intended for California drivers who have received a traffic ticket and want to avoid points added to their driving record.

Though there are certain guidelines established by the state, you may be eligible to register for the driving class if:

  • You have a valid California driver’s license
  • Your citation is for a minor moving violation
  • You were driving a noncommercial vehicle when the offense occurred

Additionally, you may not be eligible to take a driver improvement course if you have already completed traffic school for another ticket within the last 18 months. For more information, you can review the California Rules of Court.

Ask your court contact if you qualify for traffic school for ticket dismissal, deferral, or diversion.

Our courses are currently used for insurance discount purposes. Contact your insurance agent to find out if your insurance carrier offers defensive driving discounts and whether are eligible to receive a rate reduction. We will soon release our Traffic Violator School to help you keep your driving record clean.

How long will it take to complete the TVS?

The State of California requires traffic school to take 8 hours to review all course material.

Will Traffic Violator School eliminate points from my driving record?

Yes. According to California guidelines, when you complete traffic school for a qualifying violation before the due date, the point should not appear on your driving record. 

Keep in mind that completing traffic school only keeps a point off your record. It does not eliminate fines or administrative fees, so you are still required to pay.

Also, if you decide to take traffic school without appearing in court, you must request permission from the court before the due date on your traffic ticket.
