Do Hollywood Stars go to California Traffic Schools?

If you're an avid Hollywood fan and you're always watching E! and reading up on the latest gossip, you'll know that Hollywood stars are always getting caught for DUI (driving under the influence). I think the most frequent violator is Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan. In fact, a few years ago, Paris Hilton created quite a buzz by being the first star (I think), to be imprisoned for DUI driving.

Anyways, if you get caught making a traffic violation, you'll be issued a ticket and then the state will either let you pay the fine or pay the fine and attend traffic school. So I was wondering whether DUI is considered as a minor traffic offense and whether stars who get caught get hauled off to a California Traffic School or whether they just pay the fine. I'm not so familiar with traffic laws in California.

If stars do attend traffic schools, do they really go or could they just send a representative or something? There are a lot of online traffic schools nowadays so I guess anyone can attend traffic school right at their own home.
