Can I take traffic school more than once? I got another speeding ticket…

how-often-can-i-take-traffic-schoolUnfortunately many people find themselves in situations where they may need to take a traffic school course more than once since they got another ticket.  One of the emails we get most frequently asks this exact question, can I take traffic more than once?  There isn’t an easy answer to this since every state has it’s own specific laws about how often you can take traffic school.

In most states it will depend on both the length of time that has passed since you last took traffic school and also the severity of the traffic violation you just got.  In some states you can only traffic school online once every 18 months, like California, but there are longer, in-person options available if you get another ticket.  In some states the length of time the course lasts changes for each ticket you get.  For example, you may have to take a 4 hour course for the first ticket and then if you get another ticket within the year, you have to take an 8 hour course.  It is important to note that in many states you can ask the judge for permission to take traffic school again and in many cases it will be granted.

Here are some examples of how often you can take traffic school.

  • Alabama:  Determined by individual counties how often traffic school can be taken
  • Alaska:  You can take the course as often as you wish for a traffic ticket.  If you are taking a 2 point course, it can be taken once every 12 months.
  • Arizona:  Defensive driving can be taken once every 2 years
  • California:  Once every 18 months, more often with court permission
  • Delaware:  You can take the course as often as you wish for a traffic ticket.  If you are taking the course for point credits, it can be taken once every 12 months.
  • Idaho:  You can take the course as often as you wish for a fine reduction.  If you are taking the course for point reduction, it can be taken once every 3 months.
  • Missouri:  As often as you like you can take traffic school course
  • Nevada:  You can take the course once a year for point reduction.  You can take the course as often as you wish for a traffic ticket.
  • Virginia:  You can take the course once every 2 years for point reduction.  You can take the course as often as you wish for a traffic ticket.

Anyone who has a traffic ticket should always consider taking traffic school online to avoid the expenses costs of getting a ticket.  Even if you believe that you may not be eligible for traffic school, it is beneficial to ask the court because in many instances they will allow you to take a course if you ask.   Taking this course can prevent you from having your insurance rates skyrocket or even losing your license if you have many violations.  Always be sure to look for traffic school online as your first option since it is easier and more convenient.  In some cases the DMV or RMV will only let you take traffic school in person for more serious offenses.
