Yes! Your Florida Online Traffic School courses are state-approved by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to meet all requirements for ticket dismissal, court-ordered traffic school, and license reinstatement.

The Florida 4-Hour Basic Driver Improvement (BDI) course – For drivers who have received a non-criminal minor traffic ticket, or have been ordered by the court to complete a Basic Driver Improvement Course (Also called a Traffic Collision Avoidance Course [TCAC]). You may also take this course voluntarily to receive an insurance discount (check with your insurance provider for eligibility and details).
The Florida 8-Hour Traffic School course – For drivers who have received two or more traffic tickets in a period of 12 months, and the court has referred you to complete a driver improvement course. Some counties may also allow you to take this course if you have already completed the 4-Hour BDI course.
The Florida 12-Hour Advanced Driver Improvement (ADI) course – For drivers who have:

Each of the Florida Traffic School courses meets state-mandated length requirements for their particular type of course. We have 4-hour, 8-hour, and 12-hour courses for different types of offenders (see "Which traffic school courses do you offer in Florida?" to determine which course you need).

For your 4- and 8-Hour courses, each chapter contains a quiz that reviews important content from that chapter. There are 10 questions per quiz, and you must score an 80% or higher to move onto the next chapter. You will be provided with feedback on any incorrect answers, and you may retake your quizzes an unlimited amount of times.
For your 12-Hour course, you will be asked 65 quiz questions throughout your course material. Some of these will be multiple-choice, and others will require essay responses, similar to your final exam.
You will then take your final exam at the end of your course, as referenced in the previous question.
You may retake your quizzes and final exam if you do not obtain a passing score of 80% or higher on your first try.
Deadlines are typically determined by the Florida courts. While we allow you 180 days to complete your course before your account is suspended, the court may require you to finish your course much sooner than that. Make sure to determine your court's deadline before beginning the course.

Contact your insurance provider to determine whether they offer discount for successful completion of a traffic school course. If they do, simply enroll in the 4-hour BDI course, work through it at your own pace, and turn in your Certificate of Completion to your insurance provider when you're finished!
