Traffic School is designed to provide instruction for individuals for deferred finding conditions or when it is an ordered stipulation of the Kent Municipal Court. This is a three and one-half hour class that looks at local problems created by poor driving decisions. The class will remind attendees what to do when they are involved in a motor vehicle crash. Traffic laws will also be reviewed.
DO NOT delay in applying for Traffic School. You must attend at least 2 weeks prior to your court date and classes fill up quickly. Apply after you receive your court date.
If you have questions about this program, please do not call the Police Department. Call the Traffic School message line after you have read the entire brochure (see the link below). You must provide your own interpreter, if needed. Please notify Traffic School personnel if you are bringing an interpreter.
If you have been court ordered to attend a defensive driving school, this class DOES NOT qualify.
Traffic School is a 3½ hour traffic safety education program for drivers who have been cited for a minor traffic infraction. It includes current driving laws, safe driving techniques, and Kent-specific traffic data to make the driver more aware and knowledgeable about local driving conditions.
