Los Angeles Traffic School for a Traffic Ticket
The traffic school option is available for most California drivers and out-of-state drivers. The Los Angeles County Superior court lists the following eligibility requirements for attending traffic school.
- Moving Violation – Your violation must be eligible for traffic school. Generally, any type of common moving violation is eligible. These include speeding, running a stop sign or red light, failure to yield the right of way, improper lane change, etc. Misdemeanor violations, DUI's, and violations involving alcohol or drugs are typically not eligible for traffic school.
- Previous Attendance – You must not have attended traffic school for another citation issued within the last 18 months of your current citation. Eligibility for attendance is calculated from the date of your last citation, not from the date of your last traffic school class. (You can contact the DMV to find out the date of your last citation.)
- Other Infractions – You may not attend traffic school for a violation that is ONLY a mechanical, insurance, driver license, or registration violation. These types of citations are not moving violations and require proof of correction for dismissal.

How Do I Pay My Los Angeles Speeding Ticket?
If you decide not to go to California traffic school for your ticket, you just need to pay the fine (i.e. bail amount) and the points will automatically go on your license. Please keep in mind that the points will be visible to your insurance company, so this action might result in higher insurance rates down the road.
You can also pay your ticket on the Los Angeles Superior Court website (click on the "Traffic Tickets" link), by mail, or in person at the court marked on your citation.
Please be aware that if you elect to go to traffic school, you will be asked to pay a traffic school fee. This fee is paid to the court, and is not the same as the course fee you pay to the school (or online provider) for your traffic school course. Driver Training Associates charges one of the lowest fees in the state. See the top of this page for our current rate.
