How To Dismiss Your Ticket!

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

 
A lot of people are unsure how to dismiss their traffic ticket and there is a reason for this uncertainty – there are a variety of ways to do it and the laws vary from state to state.

First off, paying the ticket does not dismiss it, when you pay a ticket, it typically indicates an admission of guilt and if the state has a points system, those points typically end up on your driver record, which drive up your auto insurance.

Ticket dismissal can be done one of two ways, you can contest your ticket in front of a judge, essentially convince him or her, you are not guilty of the crime or offense the officer of the law has accused you of, either in person or with a lawyer, or you request some form of deferred adjudication.   If you lose your argument, you will pay a fine and the ticket will go on your driver record.   If you have the option of deferred adjudication, you promise not to get ticketed within a probationary period, you pay a slightly reduced fine and you cannot be ticketed or accused of any offense for a certain period of time.

In Texas, you can request to take a driver safety course and we would hope you would select DefensiveDriving.com’s award winning driver safety video.  If the judge approves, you will then use the course for ticket dismissal which will keep the points off of your driver record.

In Florida, you can request to take a basic driver improvement course, which is typically known as Traffic School. Florida approved traffic schools can be done online or in a classroom and there are several different types of traffic school, basic driver improvement which is four hours, the other advanced driver improvement courses vary in length based on the type of offense.

DefensiveDriving.com offers a number of state approved defensive driving courses including our newest in California, and our staff can help you navigate the process which can be confusing … call us at any time 713-488-4000!
