WHAT ARE HOME STUDY TRAFFIC SCHOOL PROGRAMS?
Home study programs are an option offered
to you by certain courts as a means of satisfying the requirements
prescribed in the California Vehicle Code to have your traffic citation
resolved without a conviction on your DMV record.
2. WHO SAYS I CAN DO TRAFFIC SCHOOL AT HOME?
Traffic School is permitted under the California Vehicle code, Section
42007(c) and need only be authorized by the court in whose jurisdiction
the citation was issued.
3. WHO MAY TAKE A HOME STUDY PROGRAM?
Every court determines its own criteria for
home-study programs. Some will allow anyone eligible for traffic
school to take a home study course. Others make it available only
to out-of-state violators or to severely disabled violators. Check
the printed materials you received from your Court, or call the
Court, to insure that you are eligible.
4. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ClearMyTicket.com
AND REGULAR TRAFFIC SCHOOL? They are
very similar with respect to the material covered. The main difference
is that with the ClearMyTicket.com
home-study program, you can study on your own, at your own pace,
as time is available. And your successful completion is guaranteed.
5. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ClearMyTicket.com
AND OTHER HOME STUDY TRAFFIC SCHOOLS? ClearMyTicket.com
is a completely online, interactive course. With a few County exceptions, our course in 100% online. This means
you can complete the couse at your time!
There are a few
online courses that are fancier than we are, but that's because
we chose to make our course as fast as possible by doing without
online video and Java, which increase download time (which is the
time you have to wait around staring at your screen while your computer
pulls each screen of content from the Web).
6. HOW MUCH DO HOME STUDY COURSES COST?
is priced competitively with classroom Traffic Schools. Only $19.95
covers all of your costs (you must supply your own
7. HOW DO I PAY? All
the instructions you will need will be clearly stated and easily
followed once you start the course. The easiest and fastest way
to go is to pay with a credit card online. You
can also FAX us your credit card information (Fax: 1-866-805-0745)
or send us a check to PO Box 41243, Bakersfield, CA 93384.
You'll find all the information you need immediately following your
registration or, should you choose to wait to pay, via links within
the course and, again, at the very end.
8. DO I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY PAYMENT TO CLEAR
BEFORE I TAKE THE PROGRAM? No. In fact,
if you're the nervous type, you can take the entire course before
you pay. Of course, you won't receive your certificate without paying.
9. IS ANY CLASSROOM ATTENDANCE REQUIRED?
No. Your classroom is in the comfort of your
10. WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS?
No Email address is required. However, without
Email you will not receive our automatic notices verifying that
we have confirmed your completion of each round and your completion
of the course. This will make no difference to the court, or to
your experience of the course. But if you take the course without
Email, and you do not receive a Certificate of Completion in the
mail within four days of finishing the test and your payment having
cleared (if you pay by check, remember this takes up to 5 extra
days) call us at 1-866-2-CLEAR-IT.
11. WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE MY OWN ACCESS TO
THE INTERNET? No problem. We have had
many students take the course at work, at a friend's computer, or
even at the library. Any Internet access will do.
12. HOW SOON SHOULD I SIGN UP FOR ClearMyTicket.com
TRAFFIC SCHOOL? If you are eligible
for ClearMyTicket.com Traffic School
and decide that you would rather meet your court requirements on
your own time, in your own home, at your own convenience instead
of spending 8 hours drinking stale coffee in a La Quinta meeting
room, you should sign up as soon as possible. You'll want to complete
the course in plenty of time to allow for your Certificate of Completion
to be sent to the Court and recorded by your due date.
13. ONCE I SIGN UP, WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO
COMPLETE THE PROGRAM? Just click on
the button on the bottom of this page and follow the onscreen directions.
It's simple, it's fun and it will make you a safer driver if you
14. DOES MY CERTIFICATE HAVE TO BE AT THE
COURT BY MY DUE DATE? OR IS OKAY IF IT'S POSTMARKED BY THEN BUT
ARRIVES LATE? Every court has its own
policy concerning what constitutes "meeting your deadline." Some
require your Certificate to be in their hands by the date, some
require only that your Certificate be dated by the due date, some
go by the postmark, some will give you an extension if you call,
and some have automatic grace periods (of varying lengths). Because
these policies often change, we do not keep track of them. You must
contact your court to determine its policy.
15. AFTER I COMPLETE THE COURSE, WILL MY CITATION
BE DISMISSED JUST AS IF I HAD GONE TO A REGULAR CLASSROOM TRAFFIC
SCHOOL? Yes. ClearMyTicket.com
fulfills all the requirements that will result in the dismissal
of your traffic citation, as long as you successfully complete the
program. And we guarantee your successful completion and the dismissal
of your citation or we'll refund your money, no questions asked.
16. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ONLINE PROGRAM.
WHY CAN'T YOU EMAIL MY CERTIFICATE? We
are state-of-the-art, but the courts are slower to modernize. They
are also justifiably concerned about the potential for electronic
fraud. So they currently allow no electronic delivery (including
Facsimiles-FAX). They will accept original certificates only.
17. I RECEIVED A FORM FROM THE COURT THAT
SAYS I NEED TO GET A SIGNATURE FROM MY TRAFFIC SCHOOL AND SEND IT
IN WITH MY CERTIFICATE. WHAT SHOULD I DO? Don't
worry about that form. It is not required when you do your traffic
school online with us.
18. I PAID A TRAFFIC SCHOOL FEE TO THE COURT.
WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY YOU, TOO? Many
courts charge an administrative fee to allow you to take traffic
school. This is separate from your traffic school tuition (which
you would have to pay to any school you go to). We get no money
from the courts and they get no money from us.

21. I HAVE A COMMERICAL LICENSE, CAN I TAKE YOUR COURSE?
