Why Attend Traffic Violator School?
If you get a traffic ticket and it is not dismissed by a court, a report of the violation will be sent to California’s Department of Motor Vehicles. Insurance companies have access to the DMV’s records and your insurance rates may go up because of the ticket.
One way to prevent a first violation from showing up on your public DMV record (and therefore keep your insurance rates lower) is to attend a traffic violator school.
NOTE: The Department of Motor Vehicles will only allow one citation to not show on your driving record in an 18-month time period. If you attend traffic school more than once in 18 months, you will not receive the benefit of having the additional violation(s) hidden from your driving record. (The 18 months is from the date of one traffic offense to the date of another traffic offense.)
When the court receives your proof of completion of traffic school, you will not get a point against your driver’s license which may affect your insurance.
