Is it possible to expunge points from my driving record?
Expunge Driving Record PointsAvailability of this option depends on your state and, in some cases, your violation. You'll need to check with your state's DMV to see if "cleansing" your driving record options exist.
If it does, follow the requirements exactly. In some cases this may involve enrolling in some sort of course related to your violation. A traffic ticket or a speeding ticket will require attending a defensive driving program. And a DUI or DWI conviction will necessitate enrolling in a defensive driving course and, possibly, a substance abuse program.
Again, check with your state for specifics. Each state is different. In Maryland, for example, all driving records are expunged every three years of all convictions except for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. And drivers who can't wait that long, are permitted to submit an expungement request, without any course requirements.
The status of your driving record carries many ramifications. A DUI on your driving record could make a potential employer think twice about hiring you, or permanently brand you as a "red flag driver" in the eyes of insurance companies. So it's in your best interest to do all you can to cleanse your driving record, especially if it involves DUI. You should even consider hiring a DUI lawyer.
