All traffic schools are regulated and licensed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV mandates what topics all traffic schools must teach, how long courses must be, and makes certain all schools comply with licensing and regulation requirements. This helps maintain course quality and consistency while ensuring all traffic school students receive a standardized education. The only item that the DMV doesn't regulate is the price a traffic school charges for its course.
Here are a few of the DMV requirements online traffic schools must follow:
Some schools differentiate themselves by marketing themselves as comedy traffic schools, throw in a few bad jokes and then charge you extra. Others cater to people less comfortable with computers and provide traditional in-class instruction and charge extra.
