Traffic School safety Program

Must Appear in Person at the Court to Sign Up for the Program

You must appear on or before the Court Appearance Date listed at the bottom of your citation. When you appear at the court office, the clerk will give you the options available to you. If you are eligible for the traffic school program and you choose that option, the clerk will provide you with the proper paperwork to enroll you in the program and give you the information you need to contact the vendor to make arrangements to take the class.

The Traffic School Safety program is designed to allow drivers the opportunity to recognize and review their driving habits, attitudes, and behaviors. Generally, you can go to Traffic School if:

  • You were cited for a moving violation that does not involve an accident.
  • You have no previous moving violation or traffic crime convictions within the last two years.
  • You have not participated in a traffic safety program in the last two years.
  • You have a valid non-commercial driver license or permit.
  • You meet eligibility requirements set forth by the Court as determined at your Court appearance.

When you sign up for the safety program, you have 60 days to pay the Program Fee in full and turn in the Certificate of Completion. When those conditions are met, the Court will dismiss the charge.
