Do I have to appear on my court date for my civil traffic violation if I am going to go to defensive driving school?

No.  You must contact the court, at least 7 days before your scheduled court date to inform them that you are going to attend defensive driving school.  If you have attended driving school within the last 12 months, you will not be eligible.  Also, if there was an accident it could not have involved a serious injury or death.  It must be a civil violation.
