Every 18 months, the state of California offers you a chance to have
a traffic ticket dismissed from your record by attending a California
defensive driving class, called traffic violator school (TVS). A TVS
class lasts approximately 400 minutes, but of you take the class
instead of paying the fine and pleading guilty to the ticket, the
ticket stays off your California driving record. That means it doesn't
count as a negligent operator point against your license, and your
insurance company can't slap a hefty surcharge on top of your auto
insurance premium, either.
Driving University offers a state-approved TVS class that's available
online, so you can maintain a spotless driving record without even
having to leave your house. You can break the course up as much as you
like, so it's easy to fit into your busy schedule. When it's this easy
to go to traffic school, there's no reason to make yourself suffer
through years of high insurance premiums or have points on your
license. Click here to sign up
Also, the certificate of completion for your California defensive
driving course may even qualify you for an auto insurance discount.
Availability of auto insurance discounts and discount amounts can vary
by company, so make sure to contact your carrier for details.
