Traffic School in San Francisco, California

Have you recently received a traffic ticket driving in the city by the bay?  If so, you’re not alone. The number of traffic tickets issued to drivers has jumped over 34% as San Francisco implements its Vision Zero initiative that has a goal of zero traffic deaths by 2024.


As a part of this Vision Zero initiative, the San Francisco Police Department’s “Focus on Five” program targets the top moving violations that can cause collisions with pedestrians. These are:


  • Speeding
  • Running red lights
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks
  • Failing to yield while making a left or U-turn
  • Failing to fully stop at stop signs


Maybe you’ve been cited for one of the above violations.  If so, we feel your pain. As a San Francisco Bay Area based online traffic school, we understand first hand what driving in this area is like.  That’s why we believe in giving you everything you need to get that ticket off your driving record at one fixed low price with no hidden costs.

Traffic School 4 Busy People is licensed by the DMV and accepted by all Sutter County Courts. Once you pass our online traffic school course, you’re finished.  We electronically send your Completion Certificate to the Sutter County Court you listed when you registered and to the DMV to notify them that you’ve successfully passed traffic school.


Choosing A Licensed DMV Traffic School in San Francisco

As you start your search for a traffic school, you may wonder how traffic schools are different.

All traffic schools are regulated and licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV mandates what topics traffic schools must teach, how long courses are, and makes certain all schools comply with licensing and regulation requirements. This maintains course quality and consistency and ensures all traffic school students receive a standardized education.


All online traffic schools must:

Provide a course with a minimum of 42,500 words

Must cover DMV mandated course topics

Must include visuals and videos as a part of their course

So how are traffic schools different if the DMV mandates course length and content?  The answer is primarily price! Some schools differentiate themselves by marketing themselves as comedy traffic schools and throw in some jokes for an extra price. Others serve people less comfortable with computers and provide traditional in-class instruction, but when it comes down to it, all traffic schools give you the same court accepted completion certificate that keeps that ticket off your driving record. The primary difference - price.

Choosing A Licensed DMV Traffic School in San Francisco

In order to be a licensed online traffic school in California, all schools must comply with standard Department of Motor Vehicle requirements.  These requirements help standardize the quantity, and quality of content taught to every student regardless of the traffic school.

Here are a few of the DMV requirements online traffic schools must follow:

  • Course Length: minimum length of 42,500 words
  • Course Contents: must cover the DMV mandated topics (see list on DMV website)
  • Course Visuals: must have a visual or video every 500 words

Why Should You Take Traffic School?

The cost of taking traffic school is small compared to the hundreds of dollars in increased auto insurance premiums a ticket could cost you over the three years it says on your driving record. According to a 2012 analysis of over 490,000 policy quotes conducted by, getting a single ticket can boost an average policyholder’s auto insurance premium by as much as 22 percent.       


Other reasons for taking traffic school include keeping your driving record clean for employment reasons, and when you already have some existing tickets on your record.


What’s the Difference Between Traffic Schools?

In general, because the DMV licenses and controls all course curriculum, the biggest difference between traffic schools is price. Some schools advertise themselves as comedy traffic schools and charge a premium price to tell you a few jokes.  Other traditional traffic schools offer in-classroom courses for an extra fee where you sit in a classroom all day and listen to an instructor. Our school, Traffic School 4 Busy People, gives you our convenient, easy to pass online course at the lowest price possible and includes our exclusive Open Book Test Search function that helps you find answers to test questions so that you can pass fast.

Who Can Take Online Traffic Violator School?

Pursuant to Vehicle Code section 42005 and California Rules of Court rule 4.104, court clerks are only authorized to grant traffic school requests.  The courtesy notice you receive from the court by mail should indicate if you are eligible for traffic school. If you are unsure if you are eligible, call the telephone number on your ticket. You are normally eligible for traffic school if the following criteria is met:

  • You must currently possess a valid California driver's license.
  • The violation(s) on your ticket must be an eligible Vehicle Code infraction. Any violation that carries a negligent operator point count of more than one point under VC 12810 or one and one-half points or more under VC 12810.5(b)(2) is not eligible. Seat belt, mechanical or equipment violations, failure to have insurance and other certain specified violations are not eligible for traffic school.
  • You may not have attended Traffic School for a previous violation committed within the last 18-months. The 18-month eligibility period is determined from violation date to violation date and not from when you attended traffic school.
  • If cited for speeding, the alleged speed cannot be more than 25 mph over the speed limit.
  • Your citation/ticket must not have defaulted to a failure to appear unless the failure to appear charge has been adjudicated and any fine or civil assessment imposed has been paid.
  • Your citation/ticket must not be for a violation of Vehicle Code section 22406.5 (tank vehicles)
  • Your citation/ticket must not be related to alcohol use or possession.
  • Your citation/ticket must not be related to drug use or possession.

If you were cited while driving with a Class A, B or Commercial Class C driver's license, on or after January 1, 2013, but you were not driving a commercial vehicle at the time of the violation, you may attend traffic school, if eligible. Although the DMV will not assess the point count on your driving record, they will not hold the conviction as confidential and therefore your insurance may be adversely affected.
