How can I take the course again?


I got another speeding ticket but have been approved by the court to take traffic school. How can I do that again? I logged in but didn't see an option to retake the courses.

Hello Agnes-

Our records indicate that you completed traffic school less than a year ago. Therefore, you are likely not eligible to enroll in traffic school again for your current ticket.

The DMV only allows you to take traffic school once every 18 months. The 18 months is calculated from the date you received your first citation to the date you received your next one. This is also explained on the court's website at https://www.butte.courts.ca.gov/divisions/traffic/traffic-school.

Even if you take traffic school and the court dismisses the case in their system for the second ticket; the DMV will not remove the point since traffic school has already been applied to the first ticket.

Below are traffic school eligibility requirements, as stated on the court website:

If one of the criteria listed below applies, you do not qualify and the Court Clerk cannot grant Traffic School:
- You have previously attended traffic school within the last 18 months of the alleged violation date.
- The alleged violation involves alcohol or drug possession.
- You have failed to appear pursuant to Vehicle Code section 40508(a) or Penal Code section 1214.1.
- The alleged violation carries more than one point count pursuant to Vehicle Code section 12810.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
