Additional info

  • Identity questions (Important Tip!)
    It’s a DMV requirement to confirm your identity in order to attend a traffic school class at home.  We will ask you identity questions that only you would know i.e. your favorite color.   We recommend you write these down.  If you return your test and any your identity questions are wrong, the DMV will not allow us to accept your test and you will be required to start over and take a new test.  You may request a copy of your identity questions if you forgot your answers.
  • Participation questions
    While reading the booklet, you will answer 22 questions. You must correctly answer at least 70% of the Participation Questions (16 out of 22). If you do not score 70% or better, your materials will be returned to you so you may revise and correct any incorrect answers.
  • Test
    DMV requires that participants take a test.  It’s open book.   You must correctly answer a minimum of 70% of the questions (18 out of 25) in order to pass.  You have 2 opportunities to pass a final exam. You may re-register for the course if you do not pass.
  • Return your test to the driving school
    Please return your completed materials and required course evaluation in enough time for grading and processing so we can submit your completion by the due date.  You may send via regular mail, email, fax, text or in person.
  • Certificate is sent electronically to the court
    Upon successful completion, your certificate will be sent electronically to the court.  Receive a copy of your test results.  A “completion receipt” will be provided to you for your records via email.  If you do not have an email address, we will send it regular mail.

    Register with the accurate information regarding full true name on your California Driver License or Identification Card, correct case or docket number, correct court, etc. Errors made on your part are subject to a re-processing fee.
