My California Traffic School – Policies and Procedures
Please take a moment to review our policies and procedures. When you are finished, let us know that you agree and are ready to proceed with the course. If you have any questions or would like more information, we’re available to assist you 24/7.
The student agrees to complete the assigned curriculum, achieve at least the minimum passing score on all quizzes and the final examination (you will have two attempts to pass the final exam), and meet all course requirements to receive completion credit (completion receipt). The course provider cannot issue completion credit to any student who does not fulfill the requirements, and no student shall deliberately accept completion credit if he/she does not fulfill all course requirements.
The student agrees to pay the course tuition fee. The tuition fee is separate from any other fees and must be paid in full before the student can participate in the final exam and/or before completion credit can be issued. The student may pay by credit card, debit card, check, or money order (payment by check/money order must be mailed in a timely manner). If a personal check is returned for any reason, including non sufficient funds, the student shall pay the original tuition fee in addition to a $20 service charge via money order or certified cashier’s check. The student shall pay a $5 service charge for any enrollment fee that is refunded to a credit card.
Third-Party Identity Verification
When applicable, the student agrees to have her/his identity verified by a third-party prior to the course final examination. Identity verification methods will be done through Experian online verification. The student acknowledges that these services are administered by a third-party and that the provider is not responsible for the actions of the third-party.
When applicable, the student agrees to undergo third-party testing. The student acknowledges that the provider is not responsible for the actions of the third-party, including but not limited to the testing procedure and the delivery/transmission of the completion certificate (proof of completion) to the governing body.
The student shall not bypass or circumvent any section of the assigned curriculum, and he/she shall not accept outside assistance, with the exception of technical support administered by the provider. If the course circumvention is of a malicious and damaging nature to the provider or any member of the public and/or a student, the provider may pursue legal action to the full extent of the law.
The course provider retains the student’s personal information and other data collected on its website for the purpose of course administration and internal record keeping. It is the provider’s policy to maintain the confidentiality of all personal information, except as required for disclosure to the applicable governing body for official purposes. The course provider retains non-personal information, such as the type of internet browser and IP address used to access the course for the purposes of internal system maintenance and virus protection. At its discretion, the provider may use personal information to contact the student with updates and promotions about relevant services; however, the provider shall not distribute, sell, or disclose the student’s personal information, in whole or part, to any third party without the student’s permission.
The student is entitled to a refund of the tuition fee within the 48 hour period immediately following the time of enrollment if he/she does not participate in any part of the curriculum. The student shall pay a $5 service charge for any tuition fee that is refunded to a credit card. Check or money order payments will be returned to the student. If the student is unable to complete the curriculum due to legitimate health and/or technological reasons, the student shall be entitled to a refund. Students found to be in violation of any of the requirements in this document shall be disqualified from the course and shall not be entitled to a refund. Students who do not meet the above criteria or fail to meet any of the course requirements shall not be entitled to a refund. The provider reserves the right to investigate and grant refunds for any student at anytime at its discretion.
Circumstances beyond the control of the provider may cause periodic delays during the student’s course participation. These include but are not limited to: internet network problems; routing issues; server traffic congestion; and other unforeseen technological issues. The provider does not assume any liabilities or responsibilities, expressed or implied, with respect to technological problems outside of the provider’s control that delay a student’s progress or course completion.
