Most people do not voluntarily go to driving school to take a course. Spending hours with an instructor learning about driving laws and safety procedures is not always something that people choose to do willingly. However driving schools are quickly becoming more popular among people looking to remove speeding tickets from their record. Now you can actually have a speeding ticket taken off of your record rather than just paying a fine.

Driving School Courses

There are have been a variety of new driving school courses that have been developed for drivers that have received some type of traffic ticket. If you have a violation for speeding, it is possible that your can take one of the defensive driving courses that is offered. Some states are allowing drivers to have speeding violations removed from their record after completing a course. This means that you can save money on car insurance coverage by looking at the available course options at your local driving school. You will still be forced to pay your fines that accompany the ticket, but removal of the violation from your record is only possible through course completion.

Course Qualifications

In order to be eligible to take a driving course at a driving school to remove a violation from your record, you must meet the requirements. This means that not every driver even has the ability to have a ticket removed from their record. The qualifications include not taking another defensive driving course in the year prior and also presenting all ticket violation information to the driving school. A certified copy of your driving record needs to be given to the driving school when you sign up for the course.

Official Removal

It is important to note that most speeding tickets and moving violations can be removed from your record upon the completion of a driving course, but this is not foolproof. A judge will have the final say on if your driving record can be altered and the judge, in order for the ticket to be removed officially from your driving record, must approve your request. It is impossible to know for sure if a judge will rule in your favor before you complete the course. This means that there is a small chance you will complete a driving course and still have a speeding violation on your record, but this is not common--driving school is still a good option.
