My name is Steve Young and I am a retired California Highway Patrol Officer. I will also be your instructor in one of the online traffic courses with B Line Traffic Schools. No matter what course you sign up for, my goals are the same: Present you with the information that you need in a way that will not put you to sleep and then get you back to your life.  Throughout some of the courses I have included interesting situations, people and other random things I have come across in my 25+ years with the CHP to break things up a bit. Ok ok, enough about me. Close this window and start your course with B Line Traffic Schools today.

Traffic School Course – What does it cover?

05 Sep Blog | Comments

What does a traffic school course cover go over?

It is never fun getting a ticket for speeding! It costs you money, time and a point on your record. What many people do not know is that in some areas you are able to take a traffic school class and have that point removed from your record. What people also don’t know is what is actually covered, how much the traffic school class costs, etc… So, if you have recently gotten a ticket in California and are curious about how it all works, keep reading.

How do I find out if I can take a class to remove the points on my driver’s license?

Every county has its own rules about which courses it will accept, if at all and about how often a traffic school course can be taken. So it is very important that you do your research. Especially if you live in a different county than the one you got the ticket in. You will need to make sure you look up the rules for the county that you received the ticket in, NOT the one you live in.

What does the course cost?

The course cost will depend on who you end up taking the traffic school course with. If you go with B Line Traffic School the California course is only $18.95.

How many times can I enroll in a traffic school class?

In California, you can take one course, every 18 months, for a one-point traffic citation.

What materials will be required to take the class?

Should you choose to go with B Line Traffic School, all you will need is a computer and access to the internet. The class is based in flash so be aware that without a special app the course may not work on an iPad or iPhone. Also, for some of the courses you will need to be able to download a PDF in order to be able to take the test with a notary present. Adobe has a free reader available.

How long will it take to finish the traffic school class?

That is totally up to you. The great thing about an online traffic school course is that you can go at your own pace. If you have a solid chunk of time you could complete the class in one shot. But if you are not in a rush or are like a lot of people just don’t have tons of time at once you can work your way through the course whenever it is convenient for you.

What score do I need to pass?

In California you must get a 70% or higher in order to pass.

What if I fail the test?

Per the DMV, in California, if you fail the final test, you may go back through the coursework, one time and then retake the exam. If you fail it again you will have to retake the entire course.

What is ID Verification?

Every county in the state of California now requires ID verification. Most companies, including B Line Traffic Schools, uses a third party company to verify your identification.

How do I prove I completed the course?

Once you finish the course and pass the final exam your passing information will be uploaded to the DMV. This is done every day. Although electronic transmissions are fast, you need to give yourself at the very minimum 3 days before your due date for processing.

How do I know if my case was dismissed?

Wait for 2 business days once you pass your final exam and then call the court to make sure they have processed everything.

Everybody has a rough day! By taking a traffic school course you can save yourself from increased insurance rates and having a point on your driving record.
