    • Any defendant that has had one moving violation, including the current citation, in the past three (3) years

Level II (8-hr defensive driving class): Cost: $300

    • Any defendant that has had two moving violations, including the current citation, in the past three (3) years
    • Speeding 25+ over the speed limit
    • Move Over Violation, if there are no other traffic tickets within the past three (3) years

Exceptions

    • Anyone with a CDL, will NOT be allowed to go through DDS
    • Anyone with a DUI conviction within the past five (5) years, will NOT be allowed to go through DDS
    • Anyone speeding 100+ over the speed limit, will NOT be allowed to go through DDS
    • Any defendant may go through driving school if approved by the Judge or Prosecutor

 

To be considered for traffic school, defendant must appear IN PERSON at the Magistrate’s office prior to court date to pay for and schedule a class. Class costs are non-refundable. A class can be rescheduled one time but will be assessed a rescheduling fee of $25. Any additional rescheduling requests will have to be approved by the Judge on your court date. Do NOT pay your ticket if you wish to attend traffic school. Opting to plead guilty and pay the fine results in being ineligible to attend traffic school – the case is instead adjudicated and closed.
