Sign Up for Traffic School

Information About Traffic Violator School

You may choose to attend Traffic Violator's School for certain moving

violations. You are eligible if :

Ø You are not currently attending traffic school, and

Ø You have not attended traffic school for a citation issued within

the last 18 months (from violation date to violation date.)

Ø You do not hold a Commercial Class A, B or C license (while driving a

Commercial Vehicle).

Ø Commercial Drivers who were cited on or after 1/1/2013:

Drivers who hold a commercial driver’s license who were cited in a

non-commercial vehicle are able to attend traffic school, as long as

all other eligibility requirements are met.

(Per AB1888 effective January 1, 2013.)

Ø California Driver's license is required to be able to attend traffic school.

Drivers with an out of state license are not eligible to attend traffic school.

 

You may request traffic school:

Ø by paying online and marking the traffic school request

Ø in person in the traffic court clerk’s office, or

Ø by sending a letter request by mail or email to:

-- 2260 Floyd Ave., Modesto, CA 95355

-- traffic.school@stanct.org

 

In order to request traffic school, you will be required to pay:

Ø Your full bail (cost of your ticket), plus

Ø $59.00 non-refundable fee to the court

Ø A self-addressed stamped envelope (if made by mail)

Ø A separate fee will need to be paid to the traffic school. School fees

may vary depending on which school you choose.

Your request for traffic school must be made prior to your court date.

Once the court receives your payment (full bail and $59.00), your court date will be extended 90 days to allow you time to complete Traffic School. Traffic school options include in-classroom and home study (online) programs.

 

Once you have signed up for traffic school, you can find out more information

on traffic schools that are offered at the following website addresses:

 

Ø Department of Motor Vehicles List of Traffic School Providers (/randomized):

http://www.dmv.ca.gov/olinq2/welcome.do

 

Ø California Traffic Safety Institute (CTSI):

http://www.ctsi-courtnetwork.org/

If you have additional questions about traffic school options, you can also

email the traffic school court clerks at: traffic.school@stanct.org

 

Once all fees are paid and the certificate showing successful completion of

traffic school is filed with the court prior to your court date, your case will be

reported to DMV as a successful completion of traffic school (confidential conviction.)

 

As of 7/1/2011, a traffic school completion will be reported as a confidential

conviction to DMV. DMV will verify that you were eligible for traffic school, and

your conviction will either count as a confidential conviction or a regular conviction,

depending upon your eligibility.

 

Important Notes:

Ø  If you do not successfully complete Traffic Violator School before your

next court date, you will need to contact the court prior to the due date so

additional arrangements can be made.

Ø  If you have not completed Traffic Violator School and have not appeared

to make arrangements prior to your due date, you may be subject to a failure

to appear and/or forfeiture of any bail amounts you have paid.

Ø  IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR TRAFFIC SCHOOL AND DECIDE NOT TO

ATTEND OR COMPLETE TRAFFIC SCHOOL, YOUR AUTO INSURANCE MAY BE

ADVERSELY AFFECTED.

  

** ATTENTION COMMERCIAL DRIVERS SIGNING UP FOR TRAFFIC VIOLATOR SCHOOL**

**CONTACT WITH DMV IS REQUIRED (AFTER COMPLETION) TO MASK POINT **

DMV has notified the Court that Commercial Drivers who complete traffic school for citations received while driving non-commercial vehicles (under AB1888, eff. 1/1/2013) will have to contact one of the DMV’s Driver Safety Offices from one of the choices below in order to have the point masked from their driving record.   Per DMV, this is a temporary “workaround” until DMV’s programming is in place.
