5 Myths and Facts About Traffic School



Myth: It’s boring.

Fact: Traffic school doesn’t have to be boring.

Our courses have an interactive option which includes full audio narration and interesting visuals to keep you engaged. If you do find you need a break, you can stop whenever you want, and start again at any time.

Experienced drivers will probably already be familiar with the basics, but we also keep our courses up to date with the latest safety tips and traffic laws for your state.

Many of our students found our course to be more interesting than they were expecting, and even felt like it would be a good refresher for every driver to take every 5 years. Take a look at our reviews page to see what other students thought.


Myth: It’s inconvenient. You have to wake up early, sit in a classroom, and spend the whole day doing it.

Fact: You can take traffic school wherever and whenever you want.

You can take your traffic school course from home, school, work… anywhere that’s convenient for you! All you’ll need is a desktop or laptop computer with an internet connection.

Our course is designed to fit around your schedule. You can start and stop whenever you need to. Complete it all in one day, or do a little at a time.


Myth: Traffic school isn’t worth the money.

Fact: Getting a ticket can mean shelling out a lot of cash, but traffic school can prevent your ticket from costing you even more in the future.

In most states, you still have to pay your fine to the court, even if you’re taking traffic school to have your violation dismissed. On top of that, you may even have to pay an extra fee to the court for this option. And then there’s the fee for your traffic school course - is it all really worth it?

While this seems like a lot, having points on your driving record could cost you even more.

Depending on your auto insurance company’s policies, points on your license could result in higher insurance premiums, costing you a bundle over time. Even worse, many states will suspend your driving privilege if you accumulate too many points! Taking traffic school can help you avoid points on your license, keeping your insurance costs low and allowing you to keep your license.

And since we know you don’t want to spend any more than you have to, we give you the total price up front, and don’t surprise you with any hidden fees.

Myth: There’s no way to tell if an online traffic school is legitimate.

Fact: You can easily verify that we’re approved for your state or court.

If you’re taking traffic school to get a ticket dismissed or to get points removed from your license, your state DMV or your court will provide a list of approved schools. You can confirm that we’re approved for your state or court by checking that list for our school name, TrafficSchoolOnline.com.

If you’re interested in one of our insurance discount courses, contact your insurance company to confirm that they will accept our course, and find out how much of a discount they will provide.
