Keep Your Professional Driving Record Clean & Clear
If you’ve ever received a speeding ticket or other moving violation in California, your insurance premiums have most likely increased.
Many people pay their tickets without thinking about their driving record or the accompanying repercussions of accruing points and violations. When that insurance bill arrives, or when they have accumulated a few breaches and discover that their driver’s license is in threat of being suspended, they recognize the value of proactively keeping the citations off your record.
After hurling a few expletives, you undoubtedly wondered what everyone else in your situation was thinking:
How do you remove a traffic ticket from record
First, How Do Speeding Tickets Affect My Driving Record?
In California, like in many states, your driving record is tracked by using a point system that records on your license just how many violations or infractions you’ve accumulated.
The quantity of points you receive is determined by the severity and circumstances of the infraction. As mentioned before, receiving an excessive number of points can raise your auto insurance costs and, in some situations, result in the loss of your license.
How to Get A Ticket Off Record?
Try and Fight the Ticket Before it Becomes a Permanent Part of Your Record
Naturally, many individuals aren’t in a hurry to learn how to fight their ticket, how to appeal it in court, how to find a lawyer, what their chances of success are, and how long they’ll have to spend at the courthouse. Dealing with a ticket on your own or hiring someone based on a five-second Google search with no advice, other than a few excellent reviews, is incredibly stressful. And if you work full-time, you probably can’t afford to leave your family and job to spend the day in court appealing a single ticket.
But you should always first consider fighting the ticket in court. All you need to do is to show up at your trial date for your ticket and try and prove you don’t deserve it, or ask for a deferral or just delay the court hearing.
Contest the Citation
Here are some options that can help you remove a traffic ticket from record
If you cannot go to traffic school in return for the ticket being stricken from your driving record, you may be entitled to appeal it. When you fight a citation, you are essentially pleading not guilty rather than accepting the infraction.
This might be a long shot since, in most situations, you may come face to face with the officer who cited you and practically contest your own contestation by providing proof of the reason for your infraction. Nonetheless, if your citation is severe or you have reasonable evidence showing why you were unjustly cited, it may be worth a shot.
Go to Traffic School
Salvaging your record might be as easy as taking an online course. Enroll in an approved course at traffic school after getting a traffic ticket, such as failing to stop entirely at a stop sign or for speeding, to avoid points on your record.
A course about defensive driving for speeding fines may be the simplest option for you, and if it’s online, it can be completed within a few hours. And you can even complete an in-person traffic school course throughout a couple of evenings or a weekend.
A traffic school course can serve as an excellent refresher on driver safety standards and state requirements. If you successfully finish the defensive driving course, the points and inflection may be dismissed and/or deleted from your record, preventing your insurance premiums from rising. In California, you can only use traffic school once every 18 months to remove a ticket and point from your record. You can’t use it to remove a misdemeanor.
