Traffic Schools in KansasPage Overview
Although many states use a point system to rate the seriousness of each traffic violation, Kansas does not keep track of points on your driving record.
However, there are certain violations that will result in the immediate revocation of your driver's license. In addition, if you are convicted of three major moving violations in one year, your license will automatically be revoked or suspended.
The good news? Less serious offenses can be removed from your driving record if you pay your fine and attend an approved traffic school program.
If you are interested in attending traffic school, call the number listed on the back of the traffic ticket to ask if this option is available for your offense.
If you are eligible for traffic school, the DMV will send you a list of approved courses. Alternatively, you may call the Department of Revenue's Division of Motor Vehicles at (785) 296-3671. Customer service representatives are available Tuesday-Thursday from 8:10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Contrary to popular belief, attending traffic school does not have to be a difficult experience.
It's true that online courses do not satisfy driver education requirements in Kansas, but you may be given the option of taking online courses for traffic school. These allow you to study and complete lessons at your own pace.
Even classroom-based courses often have night and weekend options to accommodate work schedules, child care needs, and other commitments.
Remember, whether it's online or classroom-based, if the class isn't included in the list of approved courses the DMV gives you, it's not acceptable by the state.
In addition to helping remove minor offenses from your driving record, attending traffic school may also reduce your auto insurance rates.
If you are interested in using a traffic school course to lower your insurance premiums, ask your agent for assistance in selecting an appropriate program. Each insurance company typically has slightly different requirements for which traffic school courses are acceptable.Local Traffic Schools
