1. * * Important * * - Personal Validation Questions, Read this instruction very carefully
READ each question very carefully before answering it; answer what is asked - don't elaborate (e.g. if it asks you to identify the name of the City where you were born, and it was Houston, don't enter "Houston, Texas" because you will have a problem later; the question did not ask for both the City and the State! - - - but only for the City.
You should write down your answers to these questions. You will need them, from time to time, as the course progresses.
These questions will pop-up randomly throughout the course and you must answer them 100% correctly, or it may significantly delay your ability to complete the course.
Pay attention to how you answer these Personal Validation Questions (PVQ) - any PVQ asked during the course must be answered in literally the "exact" same way you originally answered them, including any capital letters, spaces, numbers, etc
for example: Los Angeles, los angeles, Los angeles, los Angeles, LosAngeles (and all other variations) are all different answers!
Remember exactly what you put in for your answers ! !
Most of the questions seek a one word or a one number answer;
if the question can be answered with either a number or with a word, as in the example of "how many cars have you owned?", and you owned 4 cars, it could be answered using either the number 4 or the word "four", but you must remember which one you used during the registration process
Also - we do not take Paypal for payment; we only accept credit cards or debit cards.
2. Do I have to take the online traffic school course in one sitting?
Unlike the classroom setting, where you have to take the course in one or more sitting, the benefits of taking this online traffic school is that once you have registered, you can Login and Logout of the course as many times as you wish; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our online program format allows you to create the schedule and pace that you want! But make sure that you complete the course before your court due date.
