Can I clear all my driving record points by taking an easy online traffic school course?

The court or state determines how many points to remove, if any, from your driving record after you complete a court- or state-approved easy online traffic school course. For example, Maine residents can get three points dropped from their driving records for passing traffic school. But in Pennsylvania, this option does not even exist.

Whether you enroll in an easy online traffic school or a difficult one has no bearing on points being reduced or eliminated from your driving record. Again, this is up to the courts or the state to decide.

So if you're looking to have a traffic ticket dismissed or the points from a speeding ticket reduced by taking defensive driving or traffic school, determine if your state allows this option. If it does, you then must find a traffic school that's either state- or court-approved.

To find a defensive driving course, check for traffic schools that claim to be approved, then double check by visiting your state's DMV Web site. Most provide a long list of approved schools, complete with phone numbers, addresses and sometimes Web sites. If you can't find an aprroved online traffic school, try contacting your court.
