online traffic school recommendations?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

online traffic school recommendations?

Postby Snow Nymph » Fri Sep 28, 2007 6:26 pm

I looked online and came up with these:

http://www.gotaticket.com/

http://www.comedytrafficschool.com/

http://www.greatcomedianstrafficschoolonline.com/

The first one I looked at was a joke, I think. (not listed here)

but I don't have any experience with this type of thing. Its been 9 years, and I took a weekend class (one of my weekends tht I had to stay home). I'm running out of time (due Oct 17th) so if anyone knows of a good one, pleeeeeze let me know!

thanks!

I think the one I did was http://www.gototrafficschool.com. It was great, because you could just skip ahead to the tests and do them without reading the chapters. And if you didn't get enough right, they'd just let you redo the questions you got wrong (with a very slight variation). Kind of amazing the DMV allows it! (It was 5 years ago though, so maybe they've had to toughen up their act.)

Thanks, Larry!

I ended up using gotaticket.com. It was on the list of on-line classes to take. I finally found the papers they sent in the mail.

It was painful having to wait and not be able to go to the next chapter. If I clicked on "next" too early, a message popped up "You were caught speeding . . . .". By the 3rd section, I realized I could do stuff while waiting. Like take a shower, manicure, pedicure . . . .

I printed each section (5), each section had 4 sections in it. I circled the "trick questions" so they were easy to find later, and underlined the numbers that I thought they might ask about. It made finding answers later easy. There was a 12 question quiz at the end of each of the 5 sections, with at least one trick question. At the end of the 5th quiz, there's a 50 question test, which included a lot of the questions I already answered. I got home at 10:30pm Sunday, and finished the last section and tests by 2:30am. Yesterday was a long day at work. :retard:

They also send the completion certificate directly to the court. Its due tomorrow. :righton:

Its done and I didn't have to miss a weekend in the mountains! :D

That sounds pretty similar to the one I did. Yes, you have to stall before turning the "pages" too quickly.

But thank god for the Internet. The one time I had to attend an actual in-person traffic school may have been the most painful 8 hours of my life!
