It is believed that you can remove points by joining a traffic courses but there are some cases when this cannot be done. This is because of some moral values that are still an essential part of our society. Our moral values say that if a person has done something wrong that can affect the lives of others then he should be punished. Let’s say a person gets caught due to over speeding and when he is asked about it then he shows a rather careless attitude saying I know I was driving over the limit then it is morally not right and also not safe to give this person back his driving license even after passing the traffic course whether online or offline. It is his punishment to stay away from driving for some time.
Sometimes, even the driving certificate does not helps you in getting back your driving license just because the nature of your crime is serious but in most of the cases court ask the person to take traffic class for getting back license. Commercial drivers needs to be extra careful as they are responsible for other people as well so if a commercial driver receives any traffic ticket then it is his moral and ethical as well as legal duty to join a traffic class in order to overcome his weaknesses when it comes to driving.
So, you attended your last traffic school 18 months back then get yourself ready as it is the time to join one again just to polish your driving skills. If on the other hand you received a ticket and also a courtesy mail within the three weeks of getting ticket saying that you are eligible for joining traffic school then you must get enrolled immediately. If by any mean, you do not get courtesy mail then it is your legal responsibility to ask for it from the court. Joining a traffic school does not mean that you will not give fine. This sounds upsetting but it is true that you will also have to pay the fine before going to traffic school.
Now, when you are joining a traffic school whether online or offline then do not forget to check if it is DMV registered or not. Prefer joining a school that is registered under department of motor vehicles. If you want to save money and time then online courses are best.
Some people misuse traffic school courses. What they do is keep on breaking the laws and taking classes to remove points. This is why the traffic court has introduced an efficient system. Now, if a person gets several points one after the other within a period of 1 to 2 years then his license will be taken right at the spot. If you have done a serious violation then you will go to jail.
There is an 18th month rule drivers should be aware of especially those who receive traffic tickets too often. This rule says that if a person breaks a traffic law and receives ticket then he will have to join a traffic school but if he already attended a traffic school within last 18 months then court will not allow him to join school again. If you attended traffic school within last 18months and now you have again received a traffic ticket then you will need to take special permission from the court to join traffic ticket as it is in your own benefit. If you will not join traffic school then your insurance cost will increase.
