Traffic School

Traffic School Options

You can elect to attend a State of Florida approved traffic school course at the time of payment in order to avoid having points entered on your driving record. You are eligible if:

  • You have not elected to attend traffic school within the past 12 months
  • You have not elected to attend traffic school 5 times within your lifetime
  • You do not have a Commercial Driver's License
  • You were not operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle at the time of the offense
  • You may not elect traffic school for tickets/citations related to license tag, vehicle registration, driver's license or failure to carry/show insurance violations.

NOTE: Failure to complete traffic school and submit your completion certificate within 60 calendar days from payment will result in the suspension of your driving privileges and additional assessments.

To confirm your eligibility, visit the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website.

You are responsible for the cost of your traffic school -- this is an expense separate from your traffic ticket penalty. School costs vary, so you may want to visit the website of more than one school to compare costs.
