Court Approved California Traffic School

California traffic school may be offered as an option for a driver who has been ordered by a California judge or court to attend a driver improvement course as part of the deferred adjudication process (ticket dismissal). This is also sometimes referred to as defensive driving school attendance.

We offer this course only on the Internet at the present time. The course is available in both English and Spanish versions.

You may only complete this course once every 18 months. This 8-hour course is approved by California courts.

California Auto Insurance Discount

Many insurance companies provide a discount to drivers who voluntarily attend a driver improvement or defensive driving course. The amount of the discount and the effective period of the discount vary by company and / or by state.

Contact your auto insurance agent to find out if you can receive a discount for attending this driver improvement program. We also offer the California mature driver course for qualified California drivers.

DTA offers the court approved California traffic school course through I Drive Safely®, California's number one traffic school course provider.
