Florida

Know the number of points for a Florida traffic ticket

Your driver’s license is one place where points are a bad thing. If you are convicted of traffic violation such as speeding or any moving violation in Florida points will be accessed to your drivers license. And if you are an out of state driver the State of Florida will send the violation details to your state DMV.

You Cannot Remove Points

When you are charged with a traffic violation in Florida in many cases you can avoid getting the points but once the points are on your drivers license you cannot remove them. When you pay your fine you usually have three options

  1. Plead guilty and pay the full fine (YOU GET THE POINTS)
  2. Plead NOT GUILTY (go to traffic court)
  3. Elect Traffic School Option (NO POINTS ARE ACCESSED)

Note: you must complete a state approved traffic school course and submit your proof of completion to the clerk of court in the jurisdiction where you received your traffic violation to avoid points
