Online Traffic School Florida
Determining your Florida traffic school eligibility can be a confusing process. With all the different Florida traffic laws, it can be hard to tell which ticket you can dismiss by taking a four (4) hour online traffic school Florida.
If you have received a moving traffic violation in Florida, you may be eligible to participate in a Florida traffic school course or online traffic school Florida program. When you receive a traffic violation, you will first have to confirm with the clerk of the court in the county in which you received your citation in.

In order to take online traffic school, Florida requires that you elect to take traffic school through the clerk of courts. This will also be the same if you want to take traffic school in a classroom setting. You can do so once your Florida traffic school eligibility has been confirmed. At this time, you will also be required to make payment. You can pay your traffic citation and for traffic school in person by visiting the clerk or the court in the county you received your citation, or you can send in your payment by mail along with your ticket and traffic school election form, or affidavit. You can request this Florida traffic school eligibility election form, or affidavit, by contacting the clerk’s office.
Taking Traffic School in Florida
You will only be able to attend a Florida Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) course if your citation was for a non-criminal moving violation. This, however, does not apply to commercial, or CDL, driver’s license holders. If you would like to keep your driving privileges, you will be required to take a Florida traffic school course if:
- You were the driver, involved in a crash and at fault.
- You were the driver and you have two (2) crashes within a two (2) year period, which resulted in property damage exceeding over $50.
- You were the driver and someone was taken to the hospital.
- You were the driver and were convicted of running a red light or stop sign, reckless driving, failing to stop for a school bus, and/or racing.
If you have a suspended or revoked driver’s license, but were issued permission to participate in traffic school to get a hardship license, you must take an Advanced Driver Improvement (ADI) program. This course is twelve (12) hours in length.
