Here is the latest info we have from the Kern County Courts:

Overview of Traffic School Process
Within a couple weeks of getting the traffic citation, you should get a Courtesy Notice explaining your fine amount and if a mandatory court appearance is required. You should get the Courtesy Notice in the mail at least 10 days before any appearance date. Remember, if you don't receive a Courtesy Notice for some reason, it is your responsibility to appear on or before the appearance date listed on your traffic ticket.

If your traffic ticket is for a simple moving violation, you will most likely be able to take traffic school online from home and will never have to set foot in the Bakersfield Courthouse.

Traffic School Eligibility
If you meet the following requirements, you will be eligible to take Traffic School:

- You must not have already attended traffic school within last 18 months.
- You have a valid driver's license.
- You weren't speeding 25mph (or more) above the posted speed limit
- You are not mandated to go to a court hearing
- You were not driving a commercial vehicle

1) Pay bail amount and fee to the courts

2) Sign up at Traffic School Online Registration Form

3)Take and pass our easy traffic school course online
