General Information: There are typically 5 traffic ed sessions per year: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer A and Summer B. Each session has its own online-only application period. If your child does not make it into the session, you must reapply for any subsequent sessions. It may take several attempts to be accepted into a session as there are typically more applicants than there are spots. Placement is determined by date of birth. Check the Traffic Ed Program Information & Schedules link to the left of this page for dates. 
Before Applying: View the Online Application Instructions link (to the left of this page) as applications filled out incorrectly will be denied. The application must be submitted by the parent or legal guardian - not the student!
