No Effort Traffic School provides customer support Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. This is relatively standard for most online traffic schools but is considered sub-par.

How It Works
No Effort Traffic School offers the same basic curriculum that all traffic schools offer, but with a “no-mandatory-materials” policy that makes it faster to work through than most other online traffic courses. Simply put, users can skip straight to the exam and never read any of the material if they want. That means that the course could theoretically be completed in the time it takes to finish the 25-question final exam.
Payment is through credit card or PayPal. The course costs $39.95. There is no option for a booklet course or home study course. Everything must be done online.
How Long Does the Course Take?
No Effort Traffic School meets the minimum requirements as set forth by the DMV. Actual time to completion is dependent on the student taking the course.

There are no course timers required in California, so many students get their course done in less than a couple of hours.

What We Don’t Like
No Effort Traffic School isn’t the most expensive online traffic school, but it isn’t the cheapest either. The stellar customer service and enhanced mobile device support both add to the premium that No Effort Traffic School can charge, but the price is still a bit too high. The course could be just a few dollars cheaper, especially considering the basic, no-frills curriculum.
No Effort Traffic School is a bit boring. The curriculum isn’t designed to by funny or entertaining. Some may see this as a plus, but for those who really want to learn the DMV material, No Effort Traffic School doesn’t help by making it more entertaining or less dry.
No Effort Traffic School gets high marks for its streamlined curriculum, mobile support, good customer service, and a “no-charge” guarantee. The boring curriculum may be a turnoff for some learners, but the lack of minimum times for viewing the material is sure to attract users who just want to get the course done. Overall, No Effort Traffic School is an average online traffic school course. If the course were a few dollars cheaper, it would easily secure a top score.
