Elect to Attend Driver Improvement School
By electing to attend a driver improvement school, no points will be assessed to your driving record. This election can only be made once within a twelve-month period and only (5) five times within your lifetime. Within thirty (30) days of receiving your citation, you must pay the fine, (see the Driver Improvement Fines Schedule), and fill out the Affidavit For Traffic School form, and file it with the Clerk’s Office.Traffic School Election Affidavit
You will be granted an extra fifty (50) days from the date you signed the affidavit to sign up and complete driving school and provide proof of completion to the Clerk’s Office. Failure to provide proof of completion will result in the suspension of your driver’s license, the payment of additional fines and fees, and points will be assessed against your license. Even though you did not provide proof of completion of the class, your election will count as one of your 5 allowable elections in a lifetime.
You can attend any State of Florida – approved course. Check in the yellow pages of your telephone directory under “Driver Instruction”. You can also take this course via the Internet.
