In California, when a driver is issued a moving violation they must pay their court the violation fine amount plus a state mandated Traffic School Admin fee and request traffic school as an option with the court. Once the driver completes that step, they then can then enroll in a Licensed California Traffic Violators Course (TVS).

With Urban Traffic School, once you successfully complete the course and pass the final exam your TVS completion is electronically submitted through a secure DMV system to the Court. When the court receives the TVS completion and if all fine/fees owed to the court have been paid and traffic school was elected/approved by the court, the court will add a confidential conviction to your driving record. A confidential conviction will mask the violation from your public record. Insurance companies will not see the confidential conviction.

California Vehicle Code 1808.7 states:
(a) The record of the department relating to the first proceeding and conviction under Section 1803.5 in any 18-month period for completion of a traffic violator school program is confidential, shall not be disclosed to any person, except a court and as provided for in subdivision (b), and shall be used only for statistical purposes by the department. No violation point count shall be assessed pursuant to Section 12810 if the conviction is confidential.
(b) The record of a conviction described in subdivision (a) shall not be confidential if any of the following circumstances applies:
(1) The person convicted holds a commercial driver’s license as defined by Section 15210.
(2) The person convicted holds a commercial driver’s license in another state, in accordance with Part 383 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(3) The violation occurred in a commercial motor vehicle, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 15210.
(4) The conviction would result in a violation point count of more than one point pursuant to Section 12810.
(c) This section shall become operative on July 1, 2011.
