Our California Traffic School course is licensed by the California DMV, which means it will satisfy your traffic school requirement. You can rest easy knowing you're in good hands. Also, our course comes packed with great benefits including a low cost, no hidden fees, excellent customer support, free certificate processing, and the ability to preview the course before making your purchase.


How the California Traffic School Course Works

Step 1: Register

Registration is quick and easy! Simply select the court where your received your ticket, create a username and password, and fill out your contact information.

Step 2: Complete the Course

The California Traffic School course consists of 10 lessons full of reading material, videos, animations, interactive exercises, and games. You'll review California traffic laws and learn defensive driving techniques that will help keep you safe on the road. After each lesson is a short multiple-choice quiz. You must pass the quiz to proceed to the next lesson. Most people pass the lesson quizzes on their first attempt. But don't worry--you can take the lesson quizzes as many times as you need to pass at no additional cost.

Step 3: Pay

You may take the lessons in the course without making payment. This allows you to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your course experience. However, you must make payment before taking the final exam and completing the course.

Step 4: Pass the Final Exam

At the end of the course, you will take an online multiple-choice final exam. The California Department of Motor Vehicles allows students two attempts to pass the final exam. Most students pass the exam on their first attempt. The final exam is “open book,” allowing you to review material in the course before answering a question. Safe2Drive does not charge any additional fees to take the final exam a second time. If you happen to fail the final exam twice, the California DMV requires you to register and take this course again. Safe2Drive will not issue refunds for students who fail the final exam twice.

Step 5: Complete the Course Evaluation

At the end of the course is a course evaluation that you can fill out to rate us on your course experience. We take your feedback seriously and strive to incorporate your suggestions for improvements.

Step 6: Get Your Receipt of Completion

We electornically process your completion to your court for you after you pass the final exam. Once your court has received and reviewed your completion, they will notify the DMV. The DMV will then mask (hide) the points on your driving record. No one, including insurance companies, will see your ticket.

You will also be able to print a Receipt of Completion to keep for your records.
