Traffic School Requirements:
YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR TRAFFIC SCHOOL (ABSENT COURT ORDER) IF:
- You are charged with speeding in excess of 19 MPH over the posted speed limit
- Have a commercial drivers license endorsement
- Have been found guilty of a moving traffic violation within the last two years
- Have attended a traffic school within the last two years.
If you would like to attend traffic school and the court clerk determines you are eligible you will need to call 931-232-5907 between 7:30am and 3:30pm Monday thru Friday to register. You will need to provide the following to the Court Clerk within two weeks after registration:
- Phone number
- Current Address
- A copy of your driving history from the state in which you are licensed.
You can obtain a Tennessee driving history at any Drivers Testing Center for a $ 5.00 fee (not sure about States other than Tennessee)
Final eligibility will be determined after your driving history has been received.
If eligible, we will send you a notice of eligibility with the deadline for the traffic school completion along with a list of Tennessee approved 4 hour classes from which to choose. (If you are not a Tennessee resident you will need to find a State Certified 4 hour class in your area). It must be a 4 hour class and no online classes will be accepted. You must send the certificate of traffic school completion by the deadline on your notice along with $75.00 for Court Cost and fees. You will be responsible for any fees associated with the traffic school you attend. Upon completion of the Traffic School requirements, your ticket will be dismissed. Failure to complete any of the requirements will result in a guilty verdict being entered on your citation.
If you wish to make a court appearance regarding your citation, you must appear at the time and place noted on your citation. Please bring a copy of your driving record with you to Court.
You may pay your ticket by mail with a money order, by phone at 931-232-5907 with a debit or credit card or pay online by visiting our website at www.dovertn.com . We do not accept personal checks.
