Traffic School for Your San Francisco Ticket

San Francisco – the city of rolling hills, streetcars, and traffic tickets. A San Francisco ticket can can mean points on your California driving record and higher insurance rates, unless you go to traffic school.

California traffic school is a great option for drivers who want to keep their insurance company from seeing points from a recent moving violation for speeding, running a red light, or failure to yield the right of way. And traffic school isn't the mind-numbing experience you probably remember from way back. Improvements in online learning have resulted in the development of new interactive traffic school programs that are much more bearable for the ticketed driver.

The "Green" Traffic School Course

Driver Training Associates offers San Francisco drivers a court approved defensive driving course that can be completely 100% on the Internet. The course was developed by I Drive Safely®, a California based company with years of experience in creating and refining online driver education courses.

This Internet driver improvement course is a cheap traffic school option for drivers who would rather not pay a large amount of money to a classroom traffic school. Apart from saving money on the course fee, you also save time by not having to drive to a far away classroom location. And you won't have to burn up any gasoline getting there, so you might say that online traffic school is the green option for ticket dismissal.

San Fransisco Traffic School Online

If you are worried that taking an online course will be difficult, worry no more! The course keeps track of your work and provides unlimited logins and logouts. The course navigation is simple to use and the text is written in plain language that is easy even for non-English speakers.

Video and animations are used to illustrate key points. Defensive driving has never been easier than this. Don't get stuck with a boring all-text course, a book course that forces you to read 200+ pages, or a crowded classroom course with outdated driver's ed videos.

Once you complete your defensive driving program, our course provider (I Drive Safely®) will e-mail your completion certificate to the court.
