After losing his driving license, Dana and a group of other reckless drivers are required to attend a traffic school program to regain their driving privileges. However, things take a turn for the worse when the group finds themselves being subjected to bizarre and outrageous driving tests that put their lives in danger.

Led by the strict and rule-bound Deputy Halik (James Keach), the drivers are put through a series of unconventional tests such as a high-speed chase, a demolition derby, and a wild ride on a runaway bus. Along the way, they meet a group of eclectic characters, including a seductive female driver named Monica (Jennifer Tilly), who adds to the chaos and comedy of the film.

As the group continues to face one ridiculous test after another, they soon realize that the traffic school program is not what it seems, and there may be a hidden agenda behind the bizarre driving tests they are subjected to. With their lives at stake, Dana and the group must come together to uncover the truth and put an end to the madness.
