Sample Letter to Request Traffic School

The easiest way to request the court to allow you to attend traffic school is through the California Traffic Court’s website/online services. Unfortunately, not all of the California traffic courts offer online services. As a result, your options to request traffic school become more time consuming.

Some of the courts may offer an automated telephone system to request traffic school (California Traffic Court addresses & Phone numbers). This method over all works well. However, after requesting traffic school by phone most people feel uneasy about the experience as there is no way to print a confirmation that the process actually worked on the phone and that the request went through. Unlike online services where the user is given a choice to print a copy of the authorization to attend traffic school phone services do not provide any form of tangible confirmation.

If online services are not available in your specific court and you are uncomfortable using the phone system and/or you cannot get in touch with the court clerk by phone, you may have to go to the court in person and request traffic school. This method is very time consuming and inconvenient due to the time that it takes to go through the process. In some cases people do not live or work close to the traffic court which makes it even more difficult to access the court in person.
