Frequently Asked Questions

General

Any fine amount due to the court must be paid to the court prior to attending traffic school.
You will want to complete the course in plenty of time to get the certificate or to the court or DHSMV prior to the due date provided by your court of the DHSMV.
Because different counties and courts use different names for their local traffic schools, the state of Florida DHSMV has adopted many names, including:
  • Florida 4-hour course.
  • Defensive Driving.
  • Traffic Collision Avoidance Course (TCAC).
  • Traffic School.
  • Basic Driver Improvement (BDI).

Traffic School Online is approved to offer all of these courses in Florida.

Traffic School Online is a licensed provider. We are licensed by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. Our School identification number is 21809.
The ticket dismissal course can be taken once in any 12-month period but no more than five times in your lifetime.
All other course types can be taken any time without restriction.
If you choose to pay the civil penalty or are declared guilty by a judge, your driver record will be assessed as follows:
  • Moving Violations - 3 points
  • Speeding 15 m.p.h or less over posted speed - 3 points
  • Speeding more than 15 m.p.h. over posted speeds - 4 points
  • Passing stopped school bus - 4 points
  • Moving violation (non-speeding) resulting in a crash - 4 points
  • Unlawful speed resulting in a crash - 6 points
  • Reckless driving (criminal traffic violation) - 4 points
  • Leaving scene of crash with damage - 6 points
  • Littering - 3 points
  • Violation of child restraint laws 3 points

If you accumulate:

  • 12 points in 12 months, your license will be suspended for 30 days
  • 18 points within 18 months results in a 3 month suspension
  • 24 points within 36 months results in a 12 month suspension
If you have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) and have been cited for speeding more than 30 MPH over the limit, you may not attend traffic school.
If you have taken a traffic school (BDI) course to dismiss a ticket within the past 12 months, or if you have elected five times within your lifetime, you cannot take a traffic school course.
Otherwise, you're eligible!
The Florida DHSMV offers a free service that can tell you which court you need to contact. The service is called Driver License Check. This service will provide the name of the court and their phone number.
If you need to know what your ticket is for and how much you’ll need to pay, please contact them for details.
