Will traffic school remove an accident from my driving record?
Traffic School and ViolationsNo, traffic school will not remove an accident from your driving record. However, if you were cited for a moving violation related to your accident, you may be able to expunge it from your record by attending traffic school.
Traffic school is permitted by most states in the case of minor citations, like moving violations and minor speeding tickets. Accidents and driving-related convictions do not qualify for traffic school, although in some cases you may be required to attend traffic school as punishment for a traffic-related offense. In those cases, attending traffic school does not expunge the offense from your record.
In some circumstances, the police issue citations related to the accident. For example, if your speeding contributed to the accident, you may receive a speeding ticket in addition to being responsible for accident damages. While the accident itself cannot be removed from your driving record by attending traffic school, you can get the speeding ticket expunged in qualifying situations.
The DMV or court will notify you when you receive the citation if you are eligible to attend traffic school to expunge the violation from your record.
