Traffic School Can Be Fun, Fast and Easy.

So, our team of professional course designers have created a course that is engaging, informative, and easy to breeze through.

Do it all at once or do a chapter at a time. Listen through the audio narration or speed read the page and move on - it’s your call! Our course technology allows you to stop at any time, anywhere in the course and log out. Then, when you log back in, you start right where you left off. No backtracking, no repeating what you’ve already covered.
Beware of Others Advertising Low, Low Prices.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of Florida online traffic schools advertising rock bottom prices but tacking on extra fees, like processing fees, regulatory fees, or even fees to get the certificate of completion you’ll need to turn in to your court.
Not us. One fee is all you pay. No hidden charges, no “oops, we forgot about this” fees. Honesty. Transparency. Trustworthiness. That’s our guiding principle.
Perhaps that’s why we have the highest possible rating by the Better Business Bureau of A+.

Q: How do I know if I can take an 8-hour course?
A: The most common reason to take an 8-hour traffic school course is because you’ve been ordered to do so by the court after receiving a traffic ticket.
In some counties, you can also elect to take an 8-hour traffic school course if you want to have your ticket dismissed by the court, but you’re not eligible to take a 4-hour course because you’ve already taken it once in the last 12 months or 5 times in your lifetime. Contact your court to find out if this is an option for you!
Q: Will my court accept this course?
A: Most courts will tell you to take an 8-hour course offered by any school that is approved by the Florida DHSMV to offer a Basic Driver Improvement course. If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place! We’re fully approved to provide the Basic Driver Improvement course, and we also offer a state of the art 8-hour course that has already been accepted by many courts and judges throughout Florida.
Q: Who can take the FL 8-hour traffic school course?
A: You may be court ordered to take an 8-hour traffic school course by a judge after receiving a traffic ticket.
In some counties, you can also elect to take an 8-hour traffic school course to have your ticket dismissed by the court. This option may be available if:
- You have already elected to take 4-hour basic driver improvement once in the last 12 months
- You have taken 4-hour basic driver improvement 5 times in your lifetime
Q: How long do I have to complete the course?
A: When your court orders you to take an 8-hour traffic school course or you elect this option to dismiss a traffic ticket, they will tell you how long you have to complete your course. You must complete your course by the deadline, or risk having your license suspended.
If you think you may need more time to complete the course, contact your court to find out if you can obtain an extension.
Q: Why are there so many names for the Florida 8-hour course?
A: Different counties and courts use different names for this 8-Hour course in their paperwork. You may see this course referred to as:
- 8 Hour Traffic School
- 8 Hour Defensive Driving School
- 8 Hour Defensive Driving Course
- 8 Hour Intermediate Course
- 8 Hour Basic Course
- 8 Hour Advanced Course
Please note that this course cannot be substituted for the 12-Hour Advanced Driver Improvement Course.
Q: How do I get my certificate, and where do I turn it in?
A: You can download and print your PDF certificate as soon as you complete the course.
You must turn in your certificate to the court that ordered you or is allowing you to take the course. Be sure to find out and follow the court’s requirements. You may be able to bring it in person, or mail it in.
Q: Do I have to take the 8 hour course?
A: If your court has ordered you to take an 8-hour traffic school course, then yes, you must take the course or your license may be suspended. A 4-hour course will not be accepted as a substitute.
To avoid points from a ticket, you would normally need to take the 4-Hour Basic Driver Improvement Course. Attending an 8-hour course for this purpose is only permitted for certain counties and courts if you are not eligible to take the 4-hour course. When electing this option, make sure to find out from your court if there are any penalties for failing to complete the course. For example, the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts advises that once you elect the 8-hour course it becomes mandatory and you are required to complete the course.
Q: What if I live in a county other than the county where I got the ticket?
A: When signing up for the course, you will need to provide the name of the county and court where you received your ticket. When you complete the course, you will need to turn in your certificate of completion to that same court.
Q: What if I live out-of-state?
A: If you received a traffic ticket in Florida but you live out-of-state, you are still required to either pay the ticket, fight the ticket, or complete an online traffic school.
If a Florida court has ordered you to take an 8-hour traffic school course but you live out-of-state, you are still required to fulfill the court order.
Q: What if I have a commercial drivers license?
A: If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL) and receive a Florida traffic ticket, you must notify your employer within 30 days of conviction. Depending on the type of violation, you could face a fine, CDL suspension, or even permanent revocation.
