Gilchrist Traffic School
Gilchrist County Driving
If you're a resident of Bell, or Fanning Springs,
have a Florida Driver's license, or you received a traffic ticket in Florida, then traffic school may be for you! By electing
traffic school you may be able to avoid points on your driver's license, and maintain your clean driving record.
If you choose to go to school, you must sign an affidavit at the Clerk's office, sign up for school, and
pay the required fees. In general, the total cost to attend school is more than the fine. However, no points are assessed
against your Driver's License if you attend school. Certain restrictions apply; for further information you should contact
the Clerk of the Court, (352) 463-3170.
There are many Driver School Course Providers in Florida. You can find a traffic school
online, or you can enroll in a Florida DHSMV and Court approved online traffic school course with The Emilio School, Inc.
