When you receive a ticket, points are assessed on your driving
record as a result. Sometimes, you are ordered to attend traffic
school by a court of law. Often, this attendance will prevent the
ticket from appearing on your official driving record as points.
Some insurance companies even give discounts after you successfully
complete a traffic school course. Another reason to attend a traffic
school is to become a more responsible driver, lower your chances of
being involved in a collision (traffic school is sometimes assigned
as part of the penalty associated with drinking and driving), and
lower your chances of getting a ticket.
How quickly can I finish this course?
The course is designed to take the equivalent amount of time as a
traditional in-class traffic school. The great thing about this
course, however, is that you work at your own pace. No one is
sitting over your shoulder making you slow down or speed up.
Everyone reads at different speeds and this program will allow you
to proceed at your own pace and there is no time maximum for the
program. The average completion time varies.
How long does it take to get the certificate?
Because of security reasons, it is impossible for you to print
your own certificate, so the original certificate must be sent
directly from our office to you. You can also order a certificate
copy to be mailed to you. When you enroll, you may choose for
regular mail or expedited service.
Does the course cost anything?
Unfortunately, there is a cost to attend traffic school. $34.95
will cover all elements of the course including immediate access to
the site and the completion certificate. Regular in-class traffic
schools charge similar fees. Traffic schools are privately operated
businesses and whether you sit in a class or choose this online
program, you will need to pay for it.
How can I pay for the course?
After you fill out the registration form, you can be linked to a
completely secure credit card page where you pay quickly and
effortlessly. The site is encrypted to make your on-line purchase

all the appropriate fields and you can get started right away.
Can I use someone else's computer or Internet service?
That is what makes this course so easy and great! You can take
this course from home, work, a friend or family's house, your local
library, or you can even rent time on the Internet at a
copy/computer center. Whatever computer you use, you simply need
Internet access. You can also start on your own computer and then
finish on another. *This program also works with WEBTV.
Must I complete this course in one sitting?
This course is designed for the person who does not have a lot of
time. The course is broken up into sections and you can log off and
then log back on at a later time. The computer will record the
section you have completed. You can log on and off as many times as
you wish until you complete the program. You can also do the entire
course in one sitting.....it is up to you.

I just got knocked off line in the middle of a section. What
do I do now?
Many Internet users are knocked off line frequently. This may
result from a lost Internet connection, another call interrupting
your connection if you are on a single line with call waiting, or
simply because your own computer crashes. Remember, as you complete
each section of the course, your progress is logged. Completion of
chapter one, for example, cannot be lost if your answers are
submitted to the system and graded on screen. Being knocked off line
at that point, will only bring you back to the start of the next
chapter, it will not delete chapter one. Our website is unable to
control your Internet connection and inactivity on your part will
not result in our system knocking you off line. Any activity
requirements will be on the part of your Internet service provider.
I use AOL and I keep getting knocked off line. What should I
If you are using AOL as your Internet service provider, you will
have activity requirements while online. During some of the longer
sections requiring more reading, there is a chance AOL will knock
you off-line unless you remain interactive with AOL. Do not leave
the screen alone for any great length of time.....remain interactive
with the screen.
Are there any special computer or download requirements to
participate in the course?
There are no videos to download in our program and no special
requirements at all of your computer. If you are on this screen and
on our website, you can typically enroll and complete the course
without a problem.
What happens if I fail the final? Can I take it again?
You may take the final numerous times without having to pay a
