If you are charged with a civil infraction, the Santa Clara County Clerk must receive notification of your choice of one of the options listed below by the deadline date listed on your citation. Failure to comply within deadline could result in additional late fees and a suspension of your driving privileges.
OPTION 1: Attend Online Traffic School
Traffic School Benefits for people who receive California traffic tickets:
- Successful completion can help you avoid auto insurance hikes.
- No points will be added to your driver's license record.
- The 8-hour course is available online or through a home-study workbook course depending on the county.
OPTION 2: Pay the Civil Penalty as Stated on the Citation
When you elect to pay the civil penalty as stated on your citation:
- Your case will be satisfied upon payment.
- The charge will be entered on your driving record as a conviction.
- POINTS WILL BE ASSESSED AS APPLICABLE
Please note: if you select this option you will not be allowed to elect the school option later.
OPTION 3: Plead Not Guilty
If you go to court and decide to try to beat your traffic ticket, a judge may adjudicate you guilty, assess points, fine you up to $1000, require you to attend traffic school, or all of the above. And, your insurance rates may go up and your policy may be cancelled. Visit the Santa Clara County Clerk of Court website for instructions on pleading not guilty.
