General Overview & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

In order to serve you better, Traffic School Online has created a list of frequently asked questions for you to use as a traffic school 101 guide regarding our defensive driving and traffic school courses.

What is defensive driving online and online traffic school?

It's a better way for drivers to keep their driving records clean and dismiss their traffic tickets, conveniently from the comfort of their own homes.

  • It means that you can now turn to a reputable online traffic school operator with a history of clearing damaged driving records and making traffic tickets disappear.
  • It means that you no longer have to interrupt your busy life to attend traffic school.
  • It means the hoops you had to jump through to clear your driving record are gone.

Traffic School Online isn't just another online defensive driving course. It's the first online defensive driving course. It was developed with the help of county and state agencies across the nation, effectively changing the face of traffic school as we know it. Since day one, we have successfully protected the driving records of thousands of drivers.

Equally Important, our online traffic school program continues to evolve with constant updates to reflect changes in traffic laws and regulations. We work closely with county and state agencies across the country to update our online programs, ensuring that drivers continue to receive the most relevant, most up-to-date education in the most comfortable of environments.
