Lake Traffic School Online

Policeman stopping Lake County driver for driving too fast for conditions

Most California drivers who have not attended a defensive driving course (or "traffic school") within the past 18 months are able to go to traffic school to keep points off their license.

This is important because if your insurance company sees points from a traffic ticket, they might view you as a risky driver and raise your rate. California has some of the highest insurance rates in the nation, so it's a good idea to exercise your traffic school option if it is available to you.

Lake County Courtesy Notice

Once you receive a citation in Lake County, you should get a courtesy notice in the mail within a few weeks. This notice will let you know if you are eligible to take a defensive driving course for ticket dismissal.

If you wish to attend traffic school, you should sign the form and pay the traffic school court fee. You can then click the register button at the top of this page to begin your defensive driving course. You will need to pay the course fee to DTA (shown at the top of this page), which is separate from any fees you pay to the court.

About the Lake County Traffic School Course

The online traffic school course is approved for all of the following courts in Lake County:

  • Clearlake
  • Lakeport

Most California courts require that a person meet certain criteria in order to be eligible to take a defensive driving course. Usually, you must have held a valid, non-commercial license at the time the ticket was issued and your violation must be one that is eligible for traffic school. Violations that are not eligible often include misdemeanor offenses, offenses involving drugs or alcohol, or offenses relating to tank vehicles.

The course offered here is I Drive Safely's® California driver improvement online program. This course was developed by a staff of professional traffic safety instructors with years of experience in their field. The latest technology is used to deliver sound defensive driving strategies to course participants.

Online California Traffic School vs. Classroom Compared

There are literally hundreds of online, classroom, DVD and booklet courses that a California driver can choose from. Each type of course has its own benefits and drawbacks, and the courses vary widely in quality.

Classroom traffic school is a good option for someone who really wants to be able to ask questions of an instructor, but the downside is that it is often difficult to find and schedule a classroom course, especially if you live in the more remote regions of the state. Also, the quality of instruction can range from traffic safety expert to someone with little or no knowledge of the subject matter.

Booklet and DVD courses are a relatively new phenomenon. Booklet courses are self-paced home study programs that involve a great deal of reading, sometimes 200 pages or more. Video, or DVD courses, do not require much effort on the part of the user, but most people find it difficult to take in eight hours of driving safety video in one sitting.

One reason the Internet traffic school courses are so popular is that they combine video and reading with interactive exercises. By varying the approach to instruction, these courses keep students focused on the material, making for a much more user-friendly experience.
