(If needed, you can select a different county.) Here's how our internet traffic school works in San Mateo County:
||Read the material.
The entire course is broken into 11 chapters. You can read our course at your own pace, exit at any time and later pick up right where you left off. Sign in from anywhere in the world at any time of day; we save your progress.
||Take the quizzes.
After each chapter you will need to pass a quiz that covers the material you just read. Answer 4 of 5 questions correctly to pass. If you do not pass, do not fear, you can repeat each quiz as many times as necessary. You will need to pass all the quizzes before you take the final exam.
||Take the final exam.
You will need to score 70% or higher to pass the final and complete the course. If you don't pass on the first try you can take the final exam again for no additional charge. The DMV allows you to attempt the final exam only twice, so make your attempts count.
||Pay for the course.
You complete the course after reading the material and passing the tests. Pay for the course to get your official Traffic School Certificate of Completion, which you will need in order to get credit for your work. You can securely submit your course fee online using your Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club / Carte Blanche or JCB credit card. We also accept checks and money orders.
||We send your Certificate of Completion to the San Mateo County Court.
After you have finished and paid for the course, we submit your Certificate of Completion directly to the San Mateo County Court on your behalf. We use the DMV's secure electronic processing system to submit your certificate instantly.
||Reap the rewards.
With your certificate submitted, the court takes care of your driving record -- and you're done!
