Questions? We have answers.

Q How long do I have to finish the Texas Online Traffic School course?

A You can complete our online traffic school up until 11:59 pm of the traffic school completion date given to your by the Texas Traffic Court. Note that the courts look at the date you completed the course, not the date they received the information from us.

Q Why don't you offer a "rush delivery" option?

A We believe in doing right by our customers and honest information. You should never pay a "rush delivery fee" charged by some competitor traffic schools. That's because the courts look at when you pass the final exam, not when they receive the information from us.
