How many times in a year can I take an online driving school course to dismiss a ticket?

Traffic School

The answer depends on your where you live. Most states do not offer ticket dismissal as an option, preferring instead to reward defensive driving school enrollment with reduced points or reduced fines. But there are a few that will dismiss a speeding ticket, for example, with traffic school enrollment. In Florida and Texas, two states that offer the dismissal option, you are allowed to remove one traffic ticket or speeding ticket every 12 months by completing a state-approved defensive driving course. For help in finding exact information on your state, contact your DMV.

If you live in a state that will remove a traffic ticket, be sure, before enrolling, the school meets state approval. With any luck, you will be given the okay to attend an online driving school. These courses allow you to complete the program from the comfort of home, eliminating the hassle of altering your schedule to attend an evening or weekend class across town. 

When choosing a defensive driving school or an online traffic school (if allowed), do not rely on the program's claim that it meets state approval. Always confirm with your DMV or court before enrolling. Only class certificates from sanctioned schools will be recognized.
