Will traffic school completely remove any record of a moving violation?
Removing a ViolationYes, if your citation qualifies for traffic school, traffic school will completely remove any record of a moving violation from your driving record. You just need to make sure you submit a proof of completion to your DMV.
Normally, any moving violations you receive will appear on your driving record for three to seven years, depending upon the severity and the state. Many states, however, will dismiss a moving violation after you pay a fine and attend traffic school.
To qualify for traffic school, you usually must:
- Have a valid driver’s license
- Have a ticket must be for a moving violation
- Not have attended driving school for another recent citation.
A moving violation will usually appear on your driving record within 30-60 days after you pay the fine. But in the case where you’ve attended traffic school, the moving violation will be dismissed and will never appear on your driving record. In fact, only you and the DMV will ever know the citation even occurred.
That means that you won’t have to worry about your insurance premiums rising or being denied a job because of the citation.
