According to Traffic Ticket Statistics, on average more than 41 million tickets are issued annually in the United States. This clearly indicates that Americans are all too familiar with receiving speeding tickets and it can happen to the best of us.

Although traffic tickets can negatively impact your driving record and may even increase insurance rates, there’s no need to panic. If you were recently gotten pulled over in Arizona and now have a ticket, there are a couple of solutions to get those points off your record.

Traffic ticket points are values assigned on the driving record based on the level of offence committed. In Arizona, a ticket may carry 2, 3, 4 or 6 point value for moving violations such as running a traffic light or taking illegal turns.

Keeping the Ticket off the Record

Most drivers who get a traffic ticket think that paying is the default option which is why stats from National Motorists Association show that only 5% of people fight tickets in court. However, hiring a lawyer can often cost just as much as the ticket itself; the best option is to take a driving school course.

How Defensive Driving Can Help?

Eligible drivers, especially those with first time violations can take state-approved defensive driving classes to have their tickets dismissed from the record. To be eligible, you must meet the criteria, which includes:

  • A year must have passed since the last traffic violation
  • The driver doesn’t have a commercial driving license
  • The violation doesn’t have a criminal activity associated with it

Once you meet the eligibility criteria, you can enroll at Jacob’s Driving and Traffic School and start your learning course to fight off the ticket. For efficient results, finish the course at least seven days before the hearing date.

A certificate will be issued upon completion, which you’ll be required to present in court. You may think that defensive driving courses aren’t worth the effort and might be tempted to just pay the fine, but there are two evident disadvantages to that.

  • You’re better honing your driving skills while learning under expert teachers
  • You can keep insurance rates low that are highly likely to go up otherwise—with multiple violations
  • Multiple violations will also result in license suspension
