To find out if the brick and mortar traffic school you are interested in will qualify, you should simply contact your local Mississippi county clerk's office, or call the local Department of Public Safety office for a list of pre-approved Mississippi traffic schools and defensive driving programs.
The Go To Traffic Mississippi online driver improvement course will accept payment in the form of credit card or online check, or you may mail a check or money order.
Each office will be able to explain to you how to pay your fee in the mail, online, or in person.
In addition to preventing burdensome fines, your clean Mississippi driving record makes it much less likely that a Mississippi court will suspend or revoke your Mississippi driving privileges should you be negligently involved in a serious and avoidable traffic accident or other traffic violation.
Because all communication from Mississippi courts and the Mississippi Department of Public Safety is directed to the address on your driver's license, you must make sure that information is up to date or contact the local Mississippi county clerk's office handling your traffic violation to make sure you receive these communications.
The state of Mississippi does not invoke a "points" system against your Mississippi driving record, meaning no statutory requirement exists for Mississippi to automatically revoke or suspend your license based on multiple traffic violations within a given amount of time.
Thankfully, the Mississippi legislature passed a law several years ago allowing all Mississippi drivers the opportunity to have a single traffic violation erased from their Mississippi driving record if they attend traffic school, including a Mississippi online traffic school, also known as an online defensive driving program.
In addition, many Mississippi courts will consider reducing or dismissing your traffic violation for attending an online Mississippi traffic school or defensive driving program, depending on your Mississippi driving record and the severity of the current traffic violation.
