California Online Traffic School Frequently Asked Questions

How fast can I complete online traffic school?

Completion times vary depending on reading comprehension and your ability to answer multiple choice questions. We cannot provide you with a definitive answer to the actual course time. All DMV Licensed Online Traffic Schools are regulated by the DMV and have a similar amount of reading material. You may be able to complete in an hour or less because there are no timers forcing you to stay in the course. You are not required to complete the course in one sitting - you may log on and off as many times as you would like. Complete the course in one short session or take as much time as you need.

How much will this online traffic school course cost?

Save Time Online Traffic School guarantees our price to be lower than any competitor. If you find a lower price please notify us and we will beat that price - guaranteed.

What is ID Verification and where/why is it required?

Third party Identity Verification was required by some courts prior to January 2013. Changes in acceptable methods allow us to ask students a series of questions during the registration process. Those questions are then asked randomly during the course. This method currently satisfies the identity verification requirement and allows us to provide a service that does not require additional fees.

Does the court consider this online traffic school course equivalent to a walk-in traffic school?

Yes, Internet/Home-Study courses are recognized as an equivalent alternative to the traditional walk-in traffic schools.

Is any classroom attendance required?

No. Your classroom is in the comfort of your own home, office, bedroom, park bench or anywhere you have access to the internet.

Is there an additional charge for the certificate?

No, the certificate is included in your course fee.

Is your site secure?



As shown by the graphic above, Save Time Online Traffic School utilizes an EV (Extended Validation) SSL Certificate. Obtaining an EV SSL certificate is a much more demanding process than any other type of SSL certificate and is indicated by the green tone when you are in a secure area of our site.

This means that communication between your browser and our web site is encrypted and that the certification authority has confirmed the web site is owned or operated by a business that is legally organized under the jurisdiction shown in the certificate and on the Security Status bar.

Other types of certificates do not require confirmation of ownership and are easily obtainable without any type of confirmation.

Am I required to complete this online traffic school course in one sitting?

No, you may log on and off at any time. You may decide to complete the course all at once or you could complete one section, log off and then complete additional sections at a later time. You may also re-examine the sections you have already completed at any time - and you may print the study material if it's easier for you to read information off screen.

Should I select the county where I live?

No - you need to select the county in which you received your citation. Your citation will indicate the county/court information for the jurisdiction where you were cited. Check the information you received from your court, or contact the court if you have any questions.

How soon should I sign up for online traffic school?

Save Time Online Traffic School is obviously more convenient than a walk-in traffic school course that requires a strict classroom schedule. However, you should sign up as soon as possible so that you may complete the course in plenty of time to allow for your Certificate of Completion to be sent to you or your Court and recorded by your due date.

Do I have to wait for my payment to clear before I start?

No, you may start the course and then send your payment. However, you will not gain access to the final exam until we have received your payment.

Does Save Time Online Traffic School have a physical office?

Yes. All DMV Licensed schools are required to maintain a physical place of business that may be visited by the student during normal court hours. We encourage you to visit us at:
2015 Westwind Drive, Suite 5-B
Bakersfield, CA 93301

What payment options are available?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover as well as cashier’s checks, money orders and, of course, cash.

What if I need to change my mailing address or other information?

Most information may be changed by the student using the "My Account" facility. Students may change due dates, billing address, driver's license number etc. If the County or Jurisdiction needs to be changed, please contact our office.

I paid a traffic school fee to the court. Why do I have to pay Save Time Online Traffic School too?

Courts charge an administrative fee to allow you to attend traffic school. This is separate from your traffic school tuition. We do not receive any compensation from the courts and they receive no compensation from us.

What if I do not have an Email address?

An Email address is not required. However, without an Email address you will not receive automatic notices verifying that we have confirmed your registration or completion of the course, notification from the court or any payment receipts.

What if I do not have access to the Internet?

That would pose somewhat of a problem. Internet access is required. We have had many students take the course at work (with permission), on a friend's computer, or even at a local library. Any Internet access will do.

Where will my certificate be delivered?

Your certificate will be sent electronically directly to your court.

Can I take the course on a smartphone or iPad?

Yes. However, the course experience will not be identical across all platforms.
