REVIEW: Arizona’s Top 4 Online Traffic Schools

by John Fabel | Last Updated: 2024-01-24

There are many reasons to take a traffic school course:

Question is, how are you going to get it behind you? My kid brother is fond of saying that if you give the hardest job to the laziest man, he’ll find the easiest way to do it with the least amount of effort expended.

As with most anything else in our lives these days, the “easiest way” is to do it online. There are a few classroom courses still to be found, and classroom courses can be fun. However, if you fall into the category my brother speaks of, an internet course is probably the best option. 

I do realize that if you have already Googled “Arizona traffic school,” you probably choked at the number of options available. How do you know where to begin?

Although traffic school is generally the best way to deal with a traffic ticket, you do have other options.

Do I Qualify for Arizona Traffic School?

To answer that question lies in your reason for taking the course. If it’s for your job requirement or to drop your insurance premiums, there are no restrictions on whether or not you can take a course. But, if you’re taking it for “The Big One,” the Arizona Supreme Court has a thing or two to say about whether or not you can.

Just a little aside here—If this is your first driver safety rodeo, you may notice that sometimes this article calls these courses defensive driving, and at other times traffic school. The Arizona Supreme Court calls driver safety courses “defensive driving,” but most course providers call it “traffic school.” Whether the course you choose calls itself defensive driving or traffic school, either one will get the job done.

The Arizona Supreme Court site has an overview of tickets that are eligible for dismissal, and here they are in a nutshell:

John Fabel

I have a long and checkered history with defensive driving. I took my first "court invited" course at age 15 and realized immediately that there had to be a better way. Since that first experience, I have gone on to teach defensive driving classroom courses and to author four internet courses in 2 states. After nearly 25 years in the industry, I can help you find a course that will be the best fit for you.
