About the Course

Our Virginia online driver improvement clinic is a fun, entertaining, and potentially life-saving traffic safety education program designed to earn an auto insurance discount, clear a ticket/points from your record, or satisfy a court order or Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) attendance requirement — all while learning great defensive driving techniques!

The online traffic school course is broken down into easy-to-manage modules that are accessible through our Student Center navigation page. This "table of contents" allows you to monitor your progress through the course and to access previously completed course material for review.

The Virginia DMV requires that students take a minimum of eight (8) hours to complete a driver improvement clinic. We employ timers to ensure that this requirement is met. If you're a speed reader, we encourage you use the extra time to go back and review the material. (Note: Do not navigate away from the browser window displaying the curriculum pages (by closing the window or by using your browser's "back" button or the backspace key), or the timer will reset and your progress will not be recorded!)

Because the DMV requires that we verify student identity, you'll be asked "personal identity validation questions" before you start the course. These are simple yes/no questions, such as "Have you every gone skydiving?". You will be asked these questions again periodically throughout the course, and the answer you provide must match the answer you provided at registration.

Finally, to successfully complete the course, students must pass a final exam with a minimum score of 80%. But don't worry — it's not rocket science, and we help you to prepare with short quizzes at the end of each chapter.

Virginia Driver Improvement Clinic Online notifies you immediately of your graduation, and your completion information will be electronically submitted to the DMV within 24 business hours. You'll also receive an email with an attached PDF of your official Certificate of Completion (generated as part of the electronic reporting process). You may order an official printed copy of your Certificate of Completion when you register for the course. If experience a problem with completion reporting, please contact one of our friendly customer service representatives at 1-800-252-6551 or email to vacustomersupport@trafficeducation.net.
