Defensive Driving School
Nobody ever intend to get a speeding ticket. However, there are police and you will tend to speed. A speeding fine can result in an car insurance rate hike and points on your driving record. There is a way to avoid these fines by pleading to go to driving school.
In order to have your ticket dismissed by going to driving school requires State authorities to grant permission. The date of your appearance in court should be written on your ticket. Mailing the following items to court can request permission:
• A non-abridged copy of the affidavit with your original signature.
• A copy of your policy of insurance.
• Administrative court fees.
• Proof of a valid driver’s license that is non-commercial.
When the court gives you permission to enroll in the course you, your certificate of completion will have 90 days to be mailed to court.
Once you complete your online driver’s course, you will be issued a certificate of completion. It is your responsibility to present this to the judge.
Depending on the laws that apply in the county where the ticket was issued it may also be necessary to submit a copy of your driving record. A deadline to submit your certificate will be given by the court to you. Honoring this deadline is crucial.
You can still take a defensive driving course in order to receive an insurance discount even if you have not received a fine. An online driver’s education course can be taken once every twelve months for the purpose of dismissing a ticket. Taking this course is the smart option since points that you get due to a traffic violations stay on your official record for a length of 3 years.
If you hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or if you were speeding 25mph or more over the speed limit are only conditions which make you ineligible for taking an online course to dismiss a ticket.
