Costa Mesa Traffic School Details

Costa Mesa California Traffic Violations

If you have been charged with a Costa Mesa California traffic violation or Costa Mesa California speeding ticket, the Costa Mesa California Motor Vehicle Department (DMV) will assign points to your driving record, depending on the type of infraction. As with most states, you can expect to pay a fine based on the area in which you received your Costa Mesa California traffic violation or Costa Mesa California speeding ticket. Costa Mesa California traffic violations can be paid by mail, in person at the courthouse, by check or money, by phone, or even online, depending on the county in which you received your ticket. Often, by attending a Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course, you can receive a Costa Mesa California ticket dismissal and remove points from your license.

Costa Mesa California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

The Costa Mesa California Department of Motor Vehicles issues points to your Costa Mesa California driving record based on the type of Costa Mesa California traffic violation. There are two levels of Costa Mesa California traffic violations: 1-point offenses and 2-point offenses. See the Costa Mesa California DMV website for a complete list of Costa Mesa California traffic violations and Costa Mesa California point assignments.

Some of the most common traffic violations include:

  • A traffic conviction: 1 point
  • Speeding: 1 point
  • An at-fault accident: 1 point
  • Reckless driving or hit-and-run driving: 2 points
  • DUI: 2 points
  • Driving while suspended or revoked: 2 points

The Costa Mesa California DMV will notify you when you are halfway to a Costa Mesa California license suspension. Because you can only remove 1-point offensive with a Costa Mesa California defensive driving course, it is important to be aware of your Costa Mesa California driver's license record and take steps accordingly. Your Costa Mesa California driver's license could be suspended if you accumulate more than:

  • 4 points in 12 months
  • 6 points in 24 months
  • 8 points in 36 months

Points can be cleared from your Costa Mesa California driving record in two ways. First, 1-point Costa Mesa California traffic violations will automatically clear after three years, as well as most 2-point Costa Mesa California traffic violation offenses. However, you can attend a Costa Mesa California internet defensive driving school or Costa Mesa California online traffic school to keep 1-point violations from being added to your driver's license in the first place.

Attending a Costa Mesa California Defensive Driving School or Costa Mesa California Traffic School

If you have received a Costa Mesa California speeding ticket or have been stopped for a Costa Mesa California traffic violation, which includes minor infractions such as speeding or failing to yield, you can take a Costa Mesa California defensive driving course online to remove violations and points from your Costa Mesa California driving record. You may also be eligible for Costa Mesa California ticket dismissal, depending on the traffic violation. Remember that 2-point violations cannot be waved by attending a Costa Mesa California defensive driving school or Costa Mesa California traffic school.

The Costa Mesa California Department of Motor Vehicles does not recommend specific Costa Mesa California defensive driving schools or Costa Mesa California traffic schools, so be sure to check with your school to make sure it is fully accredited with the state. Depending on the Costa Mesa California traffic violation, your ticket could be dismissed if you attend a Costa Mesa California internet defensive driving course or Costa Mesa California online traffic school.

The Benefits of a Clean Costa Mesa California Driving Record

A clean Costa Mesa California driving record can help you in several ways. By taking a Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course, you can remove 1-point Costa Mesa California traffic violations from your Costa Mesa California driver record. Because you can only take one Costa Mesa California defensive driving course per 18-month period, it is important to be aware of accumulated points and to reduce them in a timely manner. If you have accrued 4 points in 12 months, 6 points in 24 months, or 8 points in 36 months, your Costa Mesa California license will be suspended. But you can avoid having your driver's license suspended or revoked by attending an approved Costa Mesa California online traffic school or Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course.

In addition, a clean Costa Mesa California driving record is essential to keeping your Costa Mesa California car insurance premium as low as possible. In general, the less traffic violations you have on your Costa Mesa California driving history, the lower your insurance premiums will be. Most Costa Mesa California car insurance companies will charge higher premiums for each point accumulated. However, Costa Mesa California car insurance companies often offer a car insurance premium reduction of 5-15% for completion of a Costa Mesa California defensive driver program, depending on the provider.

Costa Mesa California Mature Driver Discount Programs

Costa Mesa California drivers 55 and older are eligible to receive car insurance discount for completing an approved Costa Mesa California Mature Driver Discount Program. There are many Costa Mesa California Mature Driver courses designed to teach current road rules, defensive driving techniques, and generally improve driving skills. These Costa Mesa California Mature Driver classes cover topics such as how to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots, how to monitor your own driving capabilities, vision and hearing changes, hazardous driving situations, and the effects of medication while driving. Courses include at least 400 minutes of instruction and carry a maximum fee of $30 in addition to a $1 DMV certificate charge, which can be used to obtain a Costa Mesa California car insurance reduction, depending on your Costa Mesa California insurance provider.

Costa Mesa California Juvenile Driver Programs

Costa Mesa California teen drivers are under special scrutiny from the Costa Mesa California Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are a Costa Mesa California teen driver and have received a traffic ticket, your driving license could be suspended if you fail to pay your Costa Mesa California traffic ticket fine in a timely fashion, usually within six months of the violation. Upon your first at-fault accident, the DMV will send a warning letter. Then, if you are convicted for a second at-fault accident within a 12-month period, your driver's license will be suspended unless you are accompanied by a parent or licensed adult over 25. Costa Mesa California teen drivers can find out more information about Costa Mesa California traffic violations and point assignment at the Costa Mesa California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Enrolling in a Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course can help teens maintain a clean driving record as well as educate younger drivers and help avoid Costa Mesa California traffic violations, Costa Mesa California speeding tickets, and accidents in the first place. In addition, many Costa Mesa California car insurance companies offer a discount for certification of a completed Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course or Costa Mesa California online traffic school. In addition to a possible Costa Mesa California insurance rate reduction, Costa Mesa California defensive driving courses are also recommended for new drivers because they teach practical skills that will help avoid accidents and traffic tickets in the future.

Costa Mesa California Classroom Traffic Schools

Remember: the Costa Mesa California Department of Motor Vehicles cannot refer drivers to a specific Costa Mesa California defensive driving school or Costa Mesa California traffic school, so make sure to check that a school is accredited with the state. You can remove most 1 point Costa Mesa California speeding tickets and Costa Mesa California traffic violations by taking an approved online Costa Mesa California defensive driving class

We strongly recommend that you allow at least 3 to 5 business days after the completion of your Costa Mesa California online driver improvement course to have your Costa Mesa California certificate of completion processed and sent to the Costa Mesa California court of issuance.  However, we can offer you expedited shipping through FedEx, and you can have your Costa Mesa California traffic school certificate delivered the next business day following your completion.
If my Costa Mesa California court demands that I take a Costa Mesa California defensive driving course, can I enroll in the GoToTrafficSchool.com Costa Mesa California online traffic school course to fulfill the court’s demand?
Yes, if the Costa Mesa California court told you to take the GoToTrafficSchool.com Costa Mesa California online traffic school course.

Will I still have to sit through a traditional Costa Mesa California classroom traffic school course if I take your Costa Mesa California online traffic school course?
Nope! If you dislike the thought of sitting through a tedious classroom lecture, then the GoToTrafficSchool.com Costa Mesa California online driver safety course is the choice for you. Just make sure that your state or court has authorized our program for online ticket dismissal, online driver improvement or online point reduction. To be certain whether your court approves the GoToTrafficSchool.com online defensive driving course, we suggest that you contact the court that has jurisdiction over your ticket in order to make sure.
Will taking the Costa Mesa California driver improvement course let me dismiss multiple traffic citations?
No. Taking our Costa Mesa California online traffic school will not allow you to dismiss multiple citations because most courts do not allow defendants to dismiss multiple traffic citations with a single online traffic school course. In most states you also cannot take a traffic school, defensive driving, driver improvement or point reduction course more than one time every 12, 18 or 24 months. For more information about how often you may take defensive driving in Costa Mesa California, select your court and read the "eligibility details."  If no eligibility details are present, please consult your court in Costa Mesa California to make sure that you can enroll in a Costa Mesa California online traffic school course to dismiss your ticket.
Is there any kind of ID verification process for the Costa Mesa California online defensive driving course?
In most cases, no. Very few courts require ID verification. However, some courts in Costa Mesa California may require identity verification (in the form of a proctored final exam, notarized final exam answer sheet or via a limited credit check), for the purpose of verifying that you are who you say you are prior to completing the final examination.  This is how courts make sure that somebody else is not taking the Costa Mesa California online defensive driving or point reduction course in your place. If the court that has jurisdiction over your Costa Mesa California traffic ticket approves you for online defensive driving and online traffic school, we will tell you whether identity verification is required.
