DUI in Florida
I was charged with DUI in Florida and of course, I was asked to attend a traffic school. I don’t have the luxury of time to go to a regular traffic school. Would it be better if I just go to an online traffic school? How does this work?
This is a common question we often see. As an example, here is the answer.
The good news about taking up an online traffic school is that you can just do it in the comforts of your home. You wouldn’t have to sit in a physical classroom to take the traffic school because you can simply do it online.
It is not as difficult as it sounds to find a Florida online driving school. There a lot of providers who have made courses available for students. But don’t assume that all of these online traffic schools are Florida approved traffic schools. Be mindful that not all online traffic schools are approved for court use. I suggest you check with the courts to find out which online traffic schools in Florida are worthy of their seal of approval. The list of approved Florida online traffic school providers could probably be found at the State’s Department of Transportation website or other government web location.
If you have already found a provider that you and your court like, you just need to register on a web page and establish an account. After that, you will have access to the traffic school materials that have been customized to include laws and regulations in the State of Florida, and go through the course to learn all the state-mandated items that they feel a traffic violator would benefit from learning in a defensive driving class. After your course, you’ll take a final exam and you’ll be required to get a minimum percentage correct in order to pass the course. You will be receiving a certificate of completion in the mail and be able to bring it to court to show that you have satisfied the traffic school requirements.
