If you have pled guilty, paid the court fine, traffic school administrative fee, and successfully completed traffic school by your due date, you have completed your traffic school requirement. However, you still have to complete one more step.
How To Check If Court Received Traffic School Certificate
As per California DMV rules you are required to follow up on your case to make sure the court has successfully processed your traffic school completion and closed your case. Having this reassurance is the only way to be certain that you will not get a point. See this link on how to check the status of your case.
You don’t need to send or bring your certificate to the court (see exceptions below). The court will only accept our electronic submission of your traffic school completion.
Out of State and Federal Tickets
If your ticket is from another state, or a Federal Court, you must print out and mail your certificate to the court. We only electronically send certificates to California courts. We cannot fax or email traffic school completions to the DMV.
Drivers with a commercial driver's license are responsible for contacting the DMV Driver Safety Unit at (916) 657-6452. This is required so that the DMV does not assess the point against your total NOTS point count. The point, however, will still show on your driving record.
Juvenile Court Cases
Some juvenile traffic courts require students to submit the traffic school certificate of completion directly to the court.
