Traffic School Benefits
The most important aspects of completing a traffic school course are keeping the points from being assessed on your license and withholding the adjudication from your record, which means your insurance cannot go up unless you were at fault in a crash.

In the State of Florida, driving is considered a privilege that must be earned. You can lose your driving privileges for a number of infractions and matters as varied as failure to pay child support, addiction to drugs or alcohol, failure to pay traffic violation fines, and even racing on the highway.
