I had such a good time with Improv, The Comedy Club Presents Traffic School
last weekend, that I wanted to recommend it to the net. The instructor was
Steve Verret. He claims to have been the most requested traffic school
instructor in California five years in a row, and he was good enough that I
can easily believe that. Besides being a lot of fun and two dollars cheaper
than any other school I called ($30 vs $32), he handed out to every student
a free pass for two to Improv Comedy Club in San Francisco.
The state lets you satisfy the traffic school requirement at any licensed
traffic school in the state, though some counties only recognize schools on
lists that they publish. Improv, The Comedy Club Presents Traffic School
has classes in several counties. I don't know which locations Steve Verret
teaches in addition to Santa Cruz where I took the class, but it would be
worth asking for him. Their number is 800-775-5233.
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Improv, The Comedy Club Presents
Traffic School, other than as a satisfied graduate.

I too went to the Improv traffic school. I went based on the experiences
of two of my friends who said the school was "okay," not hilarious, but not
I'd go a little further and say it was pretty good, as good as detention
can get. My instructor was Jim Coulter, and I strongly recommend him. He
is a little weird, but that's also the basis of his humour, so it makes for
an enjoyable day. Also, Jim can quote the CVC chapter and verse,
literally. He knows the text and section numbers by heart the way you and
I remember our phone numbers. The class is not only enjoyable, but Jim
teaches you alot about driving in California and the law.
Oh yeah, since their club up in the city closed, the traffic school now
gives out passes to Rooster T. Feathers (at least for classes down here in
the South Bay).
