The Best Vehicle Cam Systems For Your Car

The Best Vehicle Cam Systems For Your Car

No vehicle cam is exactly like the next, which can make things a bit intimidating when it comes to choosing the best vehicle cam for you and your car. Before setting out to find your perfect vehicle cam, there are two things you’ll want to consider prior to even doing your first search – the size of your car, and the use for your cam. Do you have a big truck and want a cam to protect you from fraud or accident liability? Do you drive a sports car that you want to take across the country? Are you driving a mid-sized car and want a cam for a little bit of all of the above? Read More

This is where many investing in a car dash camera get pretty overwhelmed, particularly with the multitude of great cameras out on the market today.

Dash Camera System Reviews & Comparisons

Dash Camera System Reviews & Comparisons

As with any modern-day electronic device, comparing and contrasting systems will be a big part of your buying process. With the multitude of really great dash cameras out on the market today, finding the best dash camera system for you will take this sort of comparison shopping also, and knowing what to compare all begins with your particular use.

A dash camera system can have many uses or many combinations of uses, and the specifications offered, those you’re comparing, will have to fit those that best suit you.

For instance, a dash camera that surveils your car when you’re not around will be a bit different than the one that you use to protect yourself from insurance fraud on the road, and both of these will differ from the one that’s capturing your road trip. Here’s a good example of someone who documented their road trip on a dash cam… Read More

How To Find The Easiest California Traffic School Online

The Fastest California Online Traffic Schools

If you need to dismiss a traffic ticket or reduce the number of point on your California driving record, I’ve got some pretty fantastic news for you. This is going to be way faster and way easier than you’re probably imagining. I’ve been reviewing online traffic schools for several years now (yeah, my life is really exciting) and I can tell you with 100% certainty that the easiest state to complete a traffic school in is the state of California. No question about that.

By WHY is California the easiest state to complete a traffic school in? For starters, you can fulfill all of your requirements online using one of the 100+ certified online traffic schools in California. Not only is it relatively cheap, but if you sign up for the right school, you can literally be done in about an hour.


Want The FAST Answer? This Is The Easiest Online Traffic School In California


Most states have “course timers” for their online traffic schools (if you’re even allowed to take the course online in the first place). These timers literally make you stay on each page for a pre-determined amount of time. For example, if the course is supposed to last 6 hours long, most states will time you and make sure you don’t just blow through it in an hour. Not California! You actually CAN blow through it in an hour, even if they say it’s supposed to take 6 hours+. Seriously, who has time for that crap, anyway?

Here are some simple steps to signing up for the easiest California traffic school online.

Step 1: Finding A California Certified Online Traffic School Without Course Timers

First of all, you need to make sure you sign up for an online traffic school that has actually been certified in the state of California. You should have received a list from the court (if you went to court). Make sure you only sign up for a school if it’s on that list. If you sign up for a traffic school that has not specifically been certified in California, you will have to redo the entire thing and you might not get your money back. How much would that suck?

Now, if for whatever reason you don’t have a list of schools that are certified in California, don’t sweat it. I provided a full list of online traffic schools in California here. I’ve also provided some recommendations below…

Step 2: Choosing A Traffic School That Doesn’t Have Course Timers

Of the 100 or so state approved online traffic schools in California, the VAST majority of them are crap. Total and complete garbage. To make matters worse, California just lifted the course timer requirements a few years ago. Some of these POS online traffic schools are so outdated, they never removed that feature. Meaning, you’d have to spend 6 hours on a course when you could just blow through it in an hour. What a waste of time.

Here are the easiest traffic schools in California that you can blow through in an hour or less…


  • Aceable – By far Aceable is the single easiest California online traffic school. If I was going to sign up for an online traffic school, this is who I’d personally sign up with.

  • iDriveSafely – This is one of my top picks because they’ve been around for about 15 years and have had close to 5 million people go through the course. That’s a lot of guinea pigs.

  • Improv Traffic School – If you want a little comedy with your traffic school, this one is owned by the same people that own the Improv Comedy Club chain. And yes, the course is pretty hilarious.

  • Go To Traffic School – This is one of the more popular online traffic schools in California because it’s not only fast and easy, but it’s cheap, too. If you find a cheaper course, they will match the price.

I VERY HIGHLY recommend you only go with one of the above courses as I can personally vouch for them (I went through the courses myself).

Step 3: Passing Your Online Traffic School Quizzes

Once you get signed up, don’t just blast through the course without following this super simple strategy. Take a screen shot of each page of the course. Most of the courses you sign up for will have a small quiz after each section (usually 6 quizzes) with a “final exam” at the end. I know, it sounds terrifying, but trust me it’s super simple. These online traffic schools have no motivation to have you fail the course, so when I say the questions are simple, that’s putting it mildly.

BUT, just to be safe, taking a screen shot of each page of the course will pretty much guarantee that you’ll pass. If you get to a question you don’t know the answer to, just go to your screen shots and find the answer by quickly scanning the page for the info you need. BAM! Done in an hour. Easy as that.

So anyway, I hope this helped! If you have any tips, tricks, or want to let everyone know about your super awesome traffic school experience, feel free to comment below.

Oh, and slow down! 😉

Online Traffic School Reviews

Alright, so I’ve spent a ton of time doing these online traffic school reviews and getting together some discount codes and coupons. I’m not sure of anybody else who is crazy enough to review online traffic schools, but as a certified driving instructor and long-haul trucker, driving is a passion for me. I’ve gone through some of the major online traffic schools out there and narrowed it down to the best. Of course, for each driving school I recommend below, there is also an extremely detailed review of the course so you know exactly what to expect.


Want The FAST Answer? This Is My Top Recommended Online Traffic School


My friendly warning to you…

I just want to prepare you real quick. There is no such thing as a fun or exciting traffic school. These online traffic school reviews aren’t meant to tell you which one is the most exciting. It’s going to be boring no matter who you go with. However, these are the most bearable online traffic schools around. These are also the only schools that I can personally vouch for as I’ve gone through them myself. There are probably other options out there that are just as good, but being one guy, I can’t review them all. Believe it or not, there are hundreds of “state certified” online traffic schools out there and most of the are very low quality.

Good luck! It’ll all be over soon!

My Detailed Online Traffic School Reviews


Review #1: Aceable
(Top Recommendation)

5 Star Rating

Aceable Drivers Ed

Aceable is, without question, by far the best online traffic school right now. Up until March of 2017 you would not have seen them listed here at all. That’s because they were only certified in a small handful of states, but as they now cover all of the major states, I feel comfortable listing them as my #1 choice now. Check out this page to see if they are certified in your state. While Aceable is one of the newer online traffic schools and I usually say that’s a bad thing, in this case, it means the opposite. For starters, this is the ONLY online traffic school that was built from the ground up for each individual mobile device you might use (and yes, you can switch between devices anytime as you take the course). While most online traffic schools have “mobile friendly” versions (usually crap), Aceable has dedicated apps and platforms for each device. They also provide audio, video, graphics, animations, and they even have a cool robot mascot named Ace, who I promise you’ll actually miss when it’s all over. Their customer service is second to none. They even gave me a special dedicated line for my website readers to use (844-685-8458). If you have any problems and use that phone number, they will know I’m the one who refered you, and I promise they will take care of you (if not, contact me!). It’s fast, it’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s modern, they have a money-back guarantee, and it’s the course I would personally use if I had to sign up. While I have a detailed review of the Aceable online driver’s ed course, I don’t have a review of their traffic school or defensive driving courses yet. I’m working on it!!

Review #2: iDriveSafely

5 Star Rating

iDriveSafelyiDriveSafely is one of the largest and oldest online traffic schools with more than 4 million customers having already completed the course (although I prefer to call them guinea pigs). They’ve been at this for over 12 years now and have kept a very good reputation. This was the very first online traffic school I ever reviewed and as of this writing, they are still among my favorites. The school also has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and their system will check to verify you are eligible for their course. Before online traffic school became available, iDriveSafely was one of the few companies that had a home based course through workbooks and VHS tapes. Now that technology has advanced into awesomeness, they have continued their home based online traffic school courses with state of the art videos, animations, and tracking software so you can use the course whenever, from wherever, using virtually any device with an internet connection.


(Just select your state in the upper right corner)


Review #3: Improv Traffic School

5 Star Rating

Improv Traffic SchoolImprov Traffic School was created by the famous chain of Improv Comedy Clubs. Many years ago, a bunch of Hollywood Comedians began giving classroom based traffic school but focused on making it fun and easy. Their traffic school courses were a huge hit, since it was more like entertainment than anything. Thankfully, Improv decided to take this same approach to online traffic school. While most online traffic schools consist of boring full length pages to read, Improv Traffic School is full of hilarious videos, pictures, animations, and even games. Plus, when you sign up, they also give you 2 free tickets to one of their Improv Comedy Clubs. The tickets have a market value greater than the actual course you’re paying for. Whether you decide to use those tickets or not, chances are you’ll have a few laughs taking their online traffic school. This is one of my favorite courses and my top recommendation for those with a good sense of humor. Oh, and don’t forget to use the coupon link they gave me (posted below) so you can save 5 bucks!

Review #4: GoToTrafficSchool

4 Star Rating

GoToTrafficSchoolGoToTrafficSchool is the best option for one person in particular… The bargain hunter! While GoToTrafficSchool isn’t exactly the most advanced traffic school in terms of engaging videos and animations, they have been around for well over a decade with millions of people having completed their course already. The main thing that sets this online traffic school apart from the rest is their lowest price guarantee. If you are able to find a price anywhere else that is cheaper than GoToTrafficSchool, they will match or beat that price. Most states set a mandatory minimum price for all online traffic schools and GoToTrafficSchool.com normally prices their course at the minimum. If you are simply looking for the lowest possible price to complete your ticket dismissal requirements, this is the course you want to sign up for. And don’t worry, you can start taking the course for free just to make sure you like it.

Review #5: Traffic School 101

4 Star Rating

Traffic 101While many people enjoy an interactive course filled with games, videos, and animations, other people just like the most bare bones course available. This is where Traffic School 101 comes in handy. This course has no frills, no thrills, and no attempts at using cheesy humor. Instead, the course is set up very similar to a standard ebook. They simply present you with the info, provide the testing platform to complete your required quizzes, and you’re done. But don’t worry, you still get the benefits of most other online traffic schools. You can still log in and out whenever you want and you get access to 24/7/365 technical and customer support. Unfortunately, some reports have come in that certain parts of this course requires a “flash plugin” so this will not work well on many mobile devices / tablets including all Apple devices. If you want a straight forward course without all the extra bells and whistles, this is definitely the course for you.


Review #6: DriversEd.com

4 Star Rating

DriversEd.comDriversEd.com is a school I normally recommend for online drivers ed courses, although they are approved in a few states for online traffic school including what I call “the big two” – California and Texas. This company is huge with drivers ed programs and repackages the material from drivers ed courses into an online traffic school. The advantage to this is, the quality is very high because there are more quality checks for drivers ed programs. The graphics and animations they use are very high quality and have a cool 3D look that’s easy on the eyes. Really impressive stuff. So this is another good option for you.


Review #7: Comedy Traffic School

4 Star Rating

Comedy Traffic School ReviewComedy Traffic School, located at ComedyTrafficSchool.com, is a course I only recently got around to reviewing. I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty darn impressed! I’m still a huge fan of my highest rated online traffic schools, Improv Traffic School and iDriveSafely, but this is definitely another great option to look into. If you are a fan of comedy based traffic schools, do yourself a favor and take a look at this one. The type of comedy they use might not be very well received by everyone, so be sure to check out their course demos and videos before you sign up.

NOTE: As of this review, Comedy Traffic School is only approved in the state of California.


Review #8: Get Defensive

3 Star Rating

Get DefensiveI decided to include this school for one main reason – they also guarantee to have the cheapest pricing. This course is very similar to GoToTrafficSchool and the school is actually operated by the same owners. However, the course is set up slightly different. Since you are allowed to start taking the course for free, you might want to go through a chapter or two and see how it compares with some of the other online traffic schools listed here. The last time I took this course, it appeared they had updated some sections and made it a bit more modern compared to their GoToTrafficSchool course. It really comes down to personal preference, so sign up for free and see what you think.


Review #9: The Online Traffic School, Inc.

3 Star Rating

OLTS Online Traffic SchoolThe Online Traffic School, Inc. is another well known online traffic school. They’ve been around for so long that they have had over 4 million people graduate from their course so far. That’s a lot of traffic violators! You get everything you’d expect from a good online traffic school like 24/7/365 support and a money back guarantee. They also have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and a good online reputation. Since they were founded in 1996, they have become certified in over two dozen states. Chances are, if your state allows online traffic school for ticket dismissal or point reduction, The Online Traffic School, Inc. will be approved. Just in case, during the signup process, they will verify your eligibility. This is definitely a higher quality online traffic school.


Review #10: Traffic School To Go

3 Star Rating

Traffic School To GoTraffic School To Go is operated by the American Safety Council. It was was one of the very first online traffic schools in the nation. They have maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and have kept a good track record with millions of former students. The course is designed so you can complete it using any device with an internet connection. In addition, this course is also guaranteed to be the cheapest. I personally had a few issues with their customer service department, however. I had sent multiple emails and had trouble getting any response. However, I still decided to include this school since many people like that they are owned and operated by the American Safety Council. It is a name people trust and their school has been licensed for well over a decade.


Review #11: Traffic School Online

2 Star Rating

Traffic School OnlineTraffic School Online has been around for about 15 years now and they have been able to maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. When doing a Google search for online traffic schools, this is one of the very top schools that comes up. When I saw that, I knew I had to write a review for it. The course itself is pretty decent, but I do have some complaints about it. For starters, it isn’t exactly mobile friendly. Their main website is not mobile friendly at all and in fact, some portions of their site require the use of Flash Plugins which are not available on most apple devices like the iPhone or iPad. We wish they were keeping up with technology a bit better. Also, we noticed some very deceitful “customer reviews” on the site which we are unable to verify. We do know there are some strange things going on with those “reviews” though. Make sure you check out my full Traffic School Online review for more details.


Review #12: No Stress Traffic School

2 Star Rating

NOTE: This online traffic school is only approved for the state of California.

No Stress Traffic SchoolNo Stress Traffic School is one of the newer online traffic school on my review list. As the name of the school implies, they do everything they can to take all the stress out of your online traffic school experience. From an easy sign-up process to a lowest price guarantee and automatically sending your certification to the courts, you can rest assured this certified school will fulfill all of your court requirements in California. As with most other modern courses, you can log in and out at anytime using any device, so you truly can do this at your own pace and from anywhere.


Review #13: Ticket School

2 Star Rating

NOTE: This online traffic school is only approved for the states of Texas, Virginia, and Florida.

Ticket School ReviewsTicketSchool.com caught my attention because I kept seeing it pop up during Google search results when searching for online traffic schools. What’s interesting is even though this course ranks highly in the search results, I can’t quite figure out why. There are no indications this is a higher quality online traffic school than many of the others who don’t show up highly in search results. With numerous “red flags”, I am very suspicious about the quality of this school or their ability to update their technology as we move into a mobile and tablet world (and whatever else comes along). While I was able to verify that this school is legitimate and approved in Texas, Virginia, and Florida, I am not able to fully recommend this school. I go into more detail in my detailed review.

While that wraps up the reviews of traffic schools, below I included a bit more information I thought you might be interested in.

Traffic Ticket Advice From An Attorney

How I Performed These Online Traffic School Reviews

Traffic School Reviews OnlineIt’s pretty simple, really. First, I research the company who runs the online driving school. I make sure they are a real company and are legitimate. If the company isn’t legit, I don’t even take the course. Anytime I enter personal information, I only go with secure websites on secure servers with secure companies that are well established. So rest assured, these schools are safe in that aspect.

Once I’ve determined the traffic school is legit, I take the course for myself. Yeah, it’s boring. But I’m happy to sacrifice my time and sanity for my fellow speeders and for the success of this website (I’m addicted to building websites – it’s fun!). After I complete the course, I write up my review. That’s it! I mean really, besides taking the course for you, there isn’t much more I can do to help, is there?

Be Careful!

If for whatever reason you don’t want to go with one of these driving courses, just be careful. Many online defensive driving schools are run by 3rd parties. In other words, you sign up for a course through one site, and they simply resell you a course from another site. Since they are acting as a “middle man” there is probably something in it for them. So before you fill in your personal information and sign up for the course, be 100% sure you are signing up for a driving school and not for some third party.

Anymore Online Traffic School Reviews?

I’ll try to get this updated, but I haven’t found any other online traffic school courses worth mentioning in a long time. Seriously, those are the best online driving schools out there. Don’t even bother with any other ones. Just stick with one of the above 4 and you’ll be good.

I do, however, have some online driving school reviews listed by state. It’ll mostly be repeated information, but check it out if you’re interested.

How Long Will Online Traffic School Take To Complete?

Online Traffic School Reviews
This depends entirely on your state. Check out my online traffic school reviews by state for more detailed info. In some states, there are programs you can take with no course timers, and that’s awesome. What’s a course timer, you might ask? Each page of your online traffic school must be timed in most states. For example, if your state normally requires a classroom traffic school to last 6 hours, the online driving course alternative must take you 6 hours as well. To ensure it takes that amount of time, there are timers in the course to prevent you from skipping ahead and finishing the entire thing in 10 minutes. Sorry, no way around this one. Although sitting in front of the television while simultaneously “taking the course” seems to act as a nice remedy (you didn’t hear that from me).

What Happens When I’m Finished Taking My Online Traffic School?

Once again, this depends on the state you’re from. In some states, such as California, it is up to the traffic school themselves to electronically send your completion certificate directly to the courts for you. However, in other states such as Texas, you will need to receive a paper copy of your certificate in the mail, then personally deliver that to the court or, in some cases, mail it into the court yourself.

Watch Out For “Expedited Shipping” Charges

Most online traffic schools require up to 7 days for “processing time” before your completion certificate is shipped. Then, they use the slowest mailing method possible with delivery times estimated at 7 to 10 days. In order to receive your certificate quicker, you have to pay ridiculous expedited processing fees. Do not procrastinate taking your online traffic school! If you do, you’ll pay for it in the way of overpriced shipping and handling fees. Just get it done.

Beware Of State Requirements

Traffic School Online Reviews
Different states and in some cases, different municipalities have different requirements that online traffic schools must abide by. What are those requirements? Well, most areas require a course timer as I mentioned earlier. In addition, in order for an online traffic school to maintain their state certification, things like “identity authentication” systems are required. Basically, they want to make sure the person taking the course is the person that actually got the traffic ticket. This authentication system can take many forms including:

  • Question / Answer Format: At the beginning of the course, you may be asked several personal questions that only you should know (do you have a mortgage, what are the 3rd and 4th numbers of your social security number, what is your mothers maiden name, what year was your father born, etc.). Once you have answered these questions, you will be asked throughout the course randomly to answer those questions again. If you get too many wrong or don’t answer within the amount of time allowed, you get locked out of the course. In addition, they may ask you new questions throughout the course that only you should know the answer to. You are allowed to get some of these wrong, but get too many wrong and you are locked out.
  • Voice Authentication: You may be required to authenticate your voice. This is usually done through the telephone. Basically, they call your phone number to get a “baseline” recording of your voice. After that, they will call you randomly throughout the course and ask you to give a secret code that is currently shown on the screen. If you do not get the code right or it is not your voice being used, you may get locked out of the course. Some courses require a microphone to be used and plugged in / active while taking the course.
  • Webcam: In some cases, a court will require you to have webcam capabilities. The webcam will need to be on and active throughout the course and/or the cam will take pictures at random times. If you are not clearly visible and identifiable, you may be locked out of the course.

What happens if you get “locked out” of a course? Normally, it’s a simple phone call to customer service. This is part of the reason why 24/7/365 customer support is necessary with online traffic schools. Most of the time when people get locked out of a course, it is due to a simple error and not due to any attempts at cheating.

Keep in mind, if you do get caught cheating or having somebody else take your online traffic school for you, it is a criminal offense. Granted, I’ve never heard of anyone actually getting fined or going to jail over this, but it’s probably best to simply complete the course yourself and not risk it. This is just traffic school, not a prison sentence!

Don’t Sign Up For Online Traffic School Until You’re Ready

Along the lines of state requirements, online traffic schools can only keep your account in “active” status for a certain period of time. Usually this is 3 to 9 months, depending on the state. If you have not completed the course in this timeframe, you will get locked out of your account. In order to re-activate, most online traffic schools we reviewed charged a fee to re-activate. Don’t sign up until you are ready to take and complete the course.

Well, I hope you found these online traffic school reviews helpful and I hope this is the last time you ever have to take an online traffic school! But hey, at least you don’t have to waste your time sitting in a stuffy classroom with a bunch of other traffic law criminals (hey, technically you’re a criminal!). Online traffic school isn’t so bad in comparison. So take one last look through all of the online traffic school reviews listed above, feel free to use our coupon codes and discount links, and get it done! It’ll all be over soon!

How Does Online Traffic School Work?

Top 3 Fastest California Online Traffic Schools

California Online Traffic School Reviews

California online traffic schools can be used for several reasons, but chances are, you want to get points removed from your driving record, dismiss a traffic ticket, or lower your insurance rates. Here’s the problem… There are nearly 80 online traffic schools approved and certified in California. You probably don’t have time to research 80 different online traffic schools and find the easiest and fastest one. That’s where I come in to save the day!

I am a certified driving instructor and have helped to create online driving courses, so I’m sort of “in the industry” so to speak. I’ve also been reviewing online traffic schools for many years including reviews of California online traffic schools.

After personally going through dozens of traffic schools, based on my experience, here are the top three fastest online traffic schools in California.

The #1 Fastest Online Traffic School in California is: Aceable

Aceable Drivers Ed

Aceable is without a doubt the absolute best online traffic school you can sign up for right now. My top recommendation changes over time, but right now Aceable is not only the best but also the fastest online traffic school in California. They also do it in a way that is actually entertaining, PLUS no other course works so well across multiple devices. Want to switch over from your laptop to your iPhone? No problem because Aceable has apps for any device you might want to use. Most online traffic schools simply have “mobile compatable” versions of their course and it hardly ever works well. There are no course timers with this course, they provide the best customer service, and it’s super freaking easy.

Check out this exclusive link for the best pricing at Aceable.

The #2 Fastest Online Traffic School in California is: iDriveSafely

iDriveSafelyiDriveSafely.com is one of the fastest online traffic schools in California because they do not have a course timer. That means, you can just skip through each page over and over again until you get to one of the quizzes. Since the quizzes are so simple, you should breeze right through it without having to read anything. If you fail a quiz, don’t even worry about it. You just have to take a different version of it over again. You can’t fail this traffic school. Oh, and in case you’re worried, they are a certified course in California, they’ve had more than 5 million people “graduate” from their courses, they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, they offer 24/7/365 live customer support, and you can log in or out of the course whenever you want. So yeah, it’s pretty legit.

Almost forgot, be sure to use this coupon link before you sign up.

The #3 Fastest Online Traffic School In California Is: Improv Traffic School

Improv Traffic SchoolEveryone knows traffic school is boring and my guess is, you’re not taking this course by choice. Luckily, Improv Traffic School exists. It was created by a group of Hollywood comedians and their main goal was to make the course entertaining by mixing in some comedy. It was a good idea, because it worked pretty well! But the heck with that, is it FAST?! Yes, it is. There are no course timers with this online traffic school and they broke it up into 6 simple sections. You can complete it all at once or split it up over time since they keep track of your place. But why split it up when you can have it done in under an hour (easily!). Plus, you can get a $5 discount by using this link.

So, there you have it. The top 3 fastest California online traffic schools. If you’re not satisfied with these three schools, no worries.

Which Car Camera Is Best?

Which Car Camera Is Best?

Naturally, before investing in a car camera, you’ll want to find the best one. Advancements in car camera technology have been something of both a blessing and a curse when it comes to choosing the best option, as there are a really great number of excellent car cameras out on the market right now, making choosing a single “best” something of an impossibility. One person may label something small and simple as the best, while another prefers a larger car camera with plenty of bells and whistles, but what it all boils down to is choosing the right camera for you, your car, and your needs.

Just one little problem… There are nearly 80 online traffic schools approved and certified in California. Yeah, 80! How the heck are you supposed to know which course to sign up with?

My Recommended California Online Traffic Schools

Online Traffic School Reviews For California
You can see my full list of California approved online traffic schools at the bottom of this page, but first, here are some of my recommendations along with my thoughts on the course. The schools listed below have been personally researched by me, a certified CDL-A driving instructor and former long-haul trucker. Each of these schools have been in business for at least a decade, have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and are the highest quality for the lowest prices I could find. Prices are regulated by the state of California anyway, so you won’t find much of a difference from course to course (although some of them like to tack on hidden charges at the end – watch for that).

Review #1: Aceable

5 Star Rating

Aceable Drivers Ed

Aceable is an online traffic school that has really impressed me. Not only is Aceable the fastest and easiest online traffic school in California, but it is also the most modern. Most online traffic schools are horribly outdated, but not Aceable. They have apps for any devices you want to use, include many different ways to get it done quickly and as painlessly as possible, and their customer service is second-to-none. In fact, Aceable contacted me and told me to give my website readers the following customer support number 844-685-8458. That number is a special line and they will know I’m the guy who referred you. Trust me, if anything comes up, they will take care of you. Of the literally HUNDREDS of certified online traffic schools in California, this is without a doubt the best one.

Review #2: iDriveSafely

5 Star Rating

iDriveSafelyIf you’re not into the goofy humor that Improv Traffic School uses, this is the next recommendation I have for you. iDriveSafely is definitely one of the oldest and best schools out there. These guys have been around since California first approved home study traffic school in the 90’s when they originally sent you a “home study packet” with study guides and VHS tapes. Things have improved now that we have the Internet! They’ve had more than 4 million people go through the course since it went online. You know what that means? They’ve got money. You know what them having money means to you? It means they can afford to pay higher quality programmers to make the course better than pretty much any other school out there. Some of these schools seem like they are run by some dude out of a garage (and that might not be far from the truth). I won’t sit here and guarantee you’ll have a great time with this course, but this is by far one of the most reputable online traffic schools approved in the state of California. Oh, and did I mention your can start the course for free? You don’t even need to give them any payment info to begin.


Review #3: Improv Traffic School

5 Star Rating

Improv Traffic SchoolEveryone knows traffic school is boring and my guess is, you’re not taking online traffic school by choice. Luckily, Improv Traffic School decided to capitalize on the boredom factor. This school was created by a group of Hollywood comedians and their main goal was to make the course entertaining by mixing in some comedy. It was a good idea, because it worked pretty well! In addition to the added humor, you can go at your own pace (do as much or as little at a time), you can’t fail it, there’s a money back guarantee, they use animations, video, and graphics to spice things up, etc. Oh, and you can start taking the course for free. Another little perk is you get a couple free tickets to any of their nationwide Improv Comedy Clubs. Check out the below video they made. If you don’t find the below video at least mildly entertaining, you might as well skip to my next recommendation.

Review #4: Go To Traffic School

4 Star Rating

GoToTrafficSchoolAs I said earlier, California online traffic schools have their prices highly regulated by the state, so you won’t notice a huge difference from school to school. But Go To Traffic School guarantees that they are the cheapest. The course quality does leave a bit to be desired, but they’ve been around for a long time and got their start in California. It’s relatively quick, it’s cheap, and it gets the job done. If that’s all you really care about, this is a good option.

Review #5: Traffic School 101

4 Star Rating

Traffic School 101 Discount CodeIf you’d actually prefer a text based course, Traffic School 101 is the course for you. I’m not sure why you would want a text based course, as I find them incredibly boring, but I’ve had feedback from people who say they prefer it (especially if they have a slow internet connection such as satellite or dial-up). This course is almost entirely text-based. Each page is timed and you are not allowed to move ahead until the timer reaches zero, no matter how quickly you read the page. But of all the text-based courses I’ve seen, this is the best one. I’d also like to note that I’ve had some excellent feedback about their customer service. Plus, every 100th customer gets to take the course for free! You never know, maybe you’ll be the lucky one!


Review #6: DriversEd.com

4 Star Rating

DriversEd.comDriversEd.com is a school I normally recommend for online drivers ed courses, although they are approved in a few states for online traffic school including California. This company is huge with drivers ed programs and repackages the material from drivers ed courses into an online traffic school. The advantage to this is, the quality is very high because there are more quality checks for drivers ed programs. The graphics and animations they use are very high quality and have a cool 3D look that’s easy on the eyes. Really impressive stuff. So this is another good option for you.


Review #7: Traffic School To Go

3 Star Rating

Traffic School To GoOperated by the National Safety Council, Traffic School To Go was one of the very first online traffic schools in the nation. The course is designed so you can complete it using any device with an internet connection. In addition, this course is guaranteed to be the cheapest. So basically we have an online traffic school with an excellent reputation, combined with low pricing and 24/7/365 customer service. Seems like a good choice for me!


Review #8: The Online Traffic School, Inc.

3 Star Rating

The Online Traffic School has been around since 1996 and is one of the most popular California online traffic schools around. They didn’t get to be one of the most popular online traffic schools by doing all the wrong things. In fact, they have been able to maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and have a great reputation online. They have even released apps so you can complete the course from your smartphone or tablet. Of course, you get everything else you normally get with a high quality course like 24/7/365 customer support and a money back guarantee. This is another great option.


Review #9: No Stress Traffic School

3 Star Rating

No Stress Traffic SchoolNo Stress Traffic School is the newest online traffic school on our recommendation list. As the name of the school implies, they do everything they can to take all the stress out of your online traffic school experience. From an easy sign-up process to a lowest price guarantee and automatically sending your certification to the courts, you can rest assured this certified school will fulfill all of your court requirements in California. As with most other modern courses, you can log in and out at anytime using any device, so you truly can do this at your own pace and from anywhere.

What Is California Online Traffic School Like?

It’s boring. Yes, even online traffic school is boring. And yes, even the courses I listed above are boring. They are simply more tolerable than other courses. So don’t go taking my reviews as if those courses will be a festival of happiness and puppies, because you’re about to be bored out of your mind. However, think of the alternatives. You can either not go to traffic school and have a ticket on your record, or you can waste an entire Saturday in a stuffy classroom with total strangers being lectured to by some loser that spends his life teaching about driving safety (I can say that because I’m a loser that spends his life teaching about driving safety).

To more directly answer the question, however, depending on the course you take there will be anywhere from 6 to 12(ish) sections. After each section, you take a super easy quiz. If you manage to fail the super easy quiz, you can keep taking it (and failing it) until you get it right. At that point, you may move on. At the end of the course is a final exam. Again, it’s super easy so don’t even sweat it. Once you pass the final exam, you’re done!

State Requirements Suck

California Traffic Schools
California online traffic schools are forced to abide by certain state requirements. These requirements may even change depending on which district you were in when you got your ticket. However, you can expect a course timer to be in place so you can’t simply race through as fast as possible. It actually takes 6+ hours to finish (sorry). There are also authentication questions you must answer and in some courses, you even have to do a voice authentication every so often. These are state requirements and it’s not the fault of the individual online traffic schools. If they had a choice, those things wouldn’t be there. Just be prepared for the government mandated silliness.

What Happens After I Finish My California Online Traffic School?

Once you’re finished taking the course, assuming you passed everything (very likely), the school will electronically send your completion certificate to the proper court. Just be aware there may be a processing time of up to a week, so don’t procrastinate. Complete the course as quickly as you can. Realistically, you could probably complete this course while sitting in front of the TV. Just do it and get it over with.

Is There A Time Limit To Complete Online Traffic School In California?

Online Traffic Schools In California
Yes! Depending on the police department that issued your ticket, you may see a traffic school option directly on the citation. This option should include further instructions on the requirements to complete online traffic school in California. Otherwise, you should call the county clerks office (where you got your ticket) as soon as possible and ask. If you require a court appearance, they will give you all of the information required to complete the course.

Will My Insurance Company Find Out?

That’s the beauty of the California online traffic school system. Your insurance company never has to know. While there may be some exceptions, for simple moving violations, you can completely eliminate the citation from your record – as if it never happened. Nice huh?!

Full List Of Certified California Online Traffic Schools

There are so many online traffic schools available that I’m not sure how you’d ever go through them all. I’ll never be able to review all of these. I’m sure there are other quality traffic schools out there, but because there are so many crummy ones as well, I very highly recommend you stick with my above list of recommended schools. If you want to shop around, though, here ya go. Good luck!!
