Internet traffic schools can be a useful tool for people who are required to attend traffic school to resolve a ticket. Traffic school is most commonly required for moving violations such as speeding. People may also be required to attend special classes if they get a driving under the influence (DUI) citation, and some Internet traffic schools provide DUI classes as well as more general traffic school for moving violations.

Before looking at traffic schools online, people should read the packet sent to them by the traffic court. The packet includes information about traffic schools, the amount of the ticket, and the deadline for paying the ticket and completing traffic school. The packet will indicate whether or not online traffic school is an option, and if it is, a list of Internet traffic schools approved by the court is provided. Failing to select a school from this list may mean that a driver's traffic school class is not accepted.

With the list of Internet traffic schools from the court in hand, the driver can start to do some research. Cost is often a factor, with many people gravitating towards the cheapest online traffic school. However, people should also think about time and the way in which the traffic school's offerings are set up. Some, for example, have several tests which people complete after doing various units, and it may be possible to skip ahead to the test to save time if someone is confident in his or her knowledge of the basics. Others will force people to step through complete modules before allowing them to move to the next step, and this will take more time.

Another thing to consider is presentation. Some website layouts are confusing or hard to navigate, and this can be irritating for people trying to complete traffic school. Many Internet traffic schools provide people with sample material so that they can see if the material is presented in a way which is accessible to them. If the content is difficult to understand or is confusing, it may be a good idea to see if another Internet traffic school presents it more clearly.

People may also want to think about whether they want to complete online traffic school in a single sitting, or if they want to be able to take breaks and complete it in sections. Some Internet traffic schools are specifically designed to allow people to stop and start, while others are formatted in a way which is intended to be used by someone who is sitting down and completing the entire traffic school in one session.

WiseGEEK is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.
