If you elect to take a class through another provider, they will charge you for their services also.    The fee paid to the other school is their tuition. The fee you pay to the county where the ticket is issued does not transfer.  Also, the other school will not report your completion, they simply allow the student to attend the class and provide a certificate of completion.  You are responsible for sending the original certificate of completion to Rock Valley College Traffic Safety Program, within 160 days from the date of the ticket. Late certificates do not count for credit. 

Please mail your certificate to:
