Additional Court Fees

Completion Certificate

- question from 2/20/2020 by Ramon, filed under Completion Certificate and Traffic School Online

I received a bill from the court, why do I have to pay $52.00 when I paid for your school and passed the course already?


I received a traffic ticket in San Joaquin County. I thought that when you complete the traffic school test that it would be sent to the court. In the mail from the court I received a bill for $52.00 so that a point will be hidden on my record. I thought that your traffic school took care of this. Why do I have to pay $52.00 when I paid for your school and passed the course already? Says

Hello Ramon-

Each court charges an additional fee to allow you to attend a traffic school or home study program. This is separate from any of our charges. If you do not pay this $52 fee to the court, then the court will not process your certificate of completion with the DMV. In addition, all traffic schools including classroom, home study or Internet courses charges a separate fee.

You were actually required to pay the $52 admin fee to the court with your fine amount in order to be approved for traffic school as noted in your courtesy notice. The court mailed you a letter regarding the unpaid fee after they received your completion certificate from us. Again, you will need to pay that fee to the court in order for them to accept your certificate on file and update your driving record with DMV.

Please let us know if you have any further questions. Have a good day from #E1393.
