Clearing Your Record

The fastest way to clear your driving record is to attend traffic school and remove a citation before it appears on your driving record. If, however, you are not eligible for traffic school or your state does not offer this option; or if your driving record contains other offenses, there is no fast way to clear your driving record.

Your driving record is maintained by the state. It includes any citations or driving-related convictions you’ve received. Although it varies from state-to-state, generally minor offenses remain on your driving record for three to seven years while major offenses like DUI remain for up to ten years.

Most states will give you the option to have a moving violation dismissed if you attend traffic school, in which case it will never appear on your driving record. But you have to accept that option when the court offers it to you, not months later after it already appears on your driving record.

Remember, the point of traffic school is to avoid having the citation ever appear on your driving record in the first place.

If you’re not eligible for traffic school, then all traffic offenses will appear on your driving record for the specified amount of time. In such cases, the only way to clear your driving record is to file an appeal with the DMV to prove that the negative items are erroneous or inaccurate.

Review Your Driving Record

If you’d like to see what’s on your driving record and find out how much longer certain items will appear, obtain a copy of your driving record today. Ordering your driving record online is quick and secure and will save you a lot of time and effort at the DMV.
