We don’t want to violate rules, especially not the traffic rules. Unless there is an emergency or a matter of life and death, people usually do follow rules. However, this doesn’t mean that we follow every rule. There are a lot of rules that we don’t follow or don’t even know e exist. This is especially true for the traffic rules. It is also the reason why traffic classes exist. This is also the reason why there are online traffic classes for those who can’t attend physical classes.
In these circumstances, apart from being ticketed, people need to attend compulsory driving classes as well. In previous times, people could go and take physical classes, however ever since the onset of the pandemic, it is not a viable option.
When the lockdown is on, this is not a problem since people can’t violate the rules. However, during the times when the lockdown is not fully in effect, this can be a huge issue. Along with this, there are a few curious people who just want to know more about traffic rules as well.
So this is why online traffic classes exist. Now to join an online traffic class, you have to follow a few steps
Steps to join an online traffic class
There the steps for joining online traffic classes are rather simple. As long as you have a smart phone or a computer and a half-decent internet connection, you can join the online traffic classes.
1. Get MS Team on Mobile or Computer
This is the software where the online classes are conducted. Microsoft Team is an online social media platform where video calls can be conducted with decent quality and decent maximum audience capacity. This app is similar to zoom in its function but the processing is different.
2. Go to the specified link
After you install the software, go to the specified link. To join the meeting you can click the link Here.
3. Enter your name and ticket number
If you have the ticket, enter the ticket number and your full name on the application and click on Join now button
While the mentioned method to attend online traffic class is for the general cases where you have committed a traffic crime/broken a rule, every one who wants to attend the class has broken a rule or has the direct link. Here are a few special cases,
For those curious people
If you don’t have a ticket but just want to join the classes for information, you have to enter your complete name and phone number to join the class.
For those who don’t have the application
If you don’t have the application on your computer or phone, you can join it from the browser. Although this works fine for computers, we would still recommend you to download the app if you are going to attend the class from mobile.
For those who don’t have the Direct link to the meeting room
If you do not have the direct link to the meeting we have, you can also visit the official website of the Traffic police, go to the online class section, and join the meeting from there as well.
Time of the classes
The traffic police understand that not all people are free every time of the day. A lot of people only have a small amount of free time. So in consideration of this, there are three times slots available to take the traffic classes which are
- 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm
- 01:30 pm to 02:30 pm
- 03:00 pm to 04:00 pm
One thing to note is that you have to join the group 10 minutes before the class actually begins. If you join late, then you won’t be allowed into the group. Also, it has to be noted that if you are someone who has been ticketed, your presence and absence on the said traffic class will be recorded and sent to the traffic head office.
If you are someone who is just curious, however, even if you join late or leave mid-way, it will not affect you in any way.
Knowing more about traffic rules is always a good thing however there is a lack of awareness among us. Not a lot of people know about the traffic rules and this is why having online traffic classes are such a good thing, Not only can you know more about the rules but you can do it from just about anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.
This not only helps us to know more but also helps us in avoiding any serious traffic charges in case we have been ticketed. In the end, we should obey traffic rules as they are meant for our safety, even if we find traffic police to be annoying at times.
And as always, thank you for reading till the end. If you have any suggestions for us, do let us known them in the comments down below.
