Bakersfield Traffic School Details

Bakersfield California Traffic Violations

If you have been charged with a Bakersfield California traffic violation or Bakersfield California speeding ticket, the Bakersfield California Motor Vehicle Department (DMV) will assign points to your driving record, depending on the type of infraction. As with most states, you can expect to pay a fine based on the area in which you received your Bakersfield California traffic violation or Bakersfield California speeding ticket. Bakersfield California traffic violations can be paid by mail, in person at the courthouse, by check or money, by phone, or even online, depending on the county in which you received your ticket. Often, by attending a Bakersfield California online defensive driving course, you can receive a Bakersfield California ticket dismissal and remove points from your license.

Bakersfield California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

The Bakersfield California Department of Motor Vehicles issues points to your Bakersfield California driving record based on the type of Bakersfield California traffic violation. There are two levels of Bakersfield California traffic violations: 1-point offenses and 2-point offenses. See the Bakersfield California DMV website for a complete list of Bakersfield California traffic violations and Bakersfield California point assignments.

Some of the most common traffic violations include:

  • A traffic conviction: 1 point
  • Speeding: 1 point
  • An at-fault accident: 1 point
  • Reckless driving or hit-and-run driving: 2 points
  • DUI: 2 points
  • Driving while suspended or revoked: 2 points

The Bakersfield California DMV will notify you when you are halfway to a Bakersfield California license suspension. Because you can only remove 1-point offensive with a Bakersfield California defensive driving course, it is important to be aware of your Bakersfield California driver's license record and take steps accordingly. Your Bakersfield California driver's license could be suspended if you accumulate more than:

  • 4 points in 12 months
  • 6 points in 24 months
  • 8 points in 36 months

Points can be cleared from your Bakersfield California driving record in two ways. First, 1-point Bakersfield California traffic violations will automatically clear after three years, as well as most 2-point Bakersfield California traffic violation offenses. However, you can attend a Bakersfield California internet defensive driving school or Bakersfield California online traffic school to keep 1-point violations from being added to your driver's license in the first place.

Attending a Bakersfield California Defensive Driving School or Bakersfield California Traffic School

If you have received a Bakersfield California speeding ticket or have been stopped for a Bakersfield California traffic violation, which includes minor infractions such as speeding or failing to yield, you can take a Bakersfield California defensive driving course online to remove violations and points from your Bakersfield California driving record. You may also be eligible for Bakersfield California ticket dismissal, depending on the traffic violation. Remember that 2-point violations cannot be waved by attending a Bakersfield California defensive driving school or Bakersfield California traffic school.

The Bakersfield California Department of Motor Vehicles does not recommend specific Bakersfield California defensive driving schools or Bakersfield California traffic schools, so be sure to check with your school to make sure it is fully accredited with the state. Depending on the Bakersfield California traffic violation, your ticket could be dismissed if you attend a Bakersfield California internet defensive driving course or Bakersfield California online traffic school.

The Benefits of a Clean Bakersfield California Driving Record

A clean Bakersfield California driving record can help you in several ways. By taking a Bakersfield California online defensive driving course, you can remove 1-point Bakersfield California traffic violations from your Bakersfield California driver record. Because you can only take one Bakersfield California defensive driving course per 18-month period, it is important to be aware of accumulated points and to reduce them in a timely manner. If you have accrued 4 points in 12 months, 6 points in 24 months, or 8 points in 36 months, your Bakersfield California license will be suspended. But you can avoid having your driver's license suspended or revoked by attending an approved Bakersfield California online traffic school or Bakersfield California online defensive driving course.

In addition, a clean Bakersfield California driving record is essential to keeping your Bakersfield California car insurance premium as low as possible. In general, the less traffic violations you have on your Bakersfield California driving history, the lower your insurance premiums will be. Most Bakersfield California car insurance companies will charge higher premiums for each point accumulated. However, Bakersfield California car insurance companies often offer a car insurance premium reduction of 5-15% for completion of a Bakersfield California defensive driver program, depending on the provider.

Bakersfield California Mature Driver Discount Programs

Bakersfield California drivers 55 and older are eligible to receive car insurance discount for completing an approved Bakersfield California Mature Driver Discount Program. There are many Bakersfield California Mature Driver courses designed to teach current road rules, defensive driving techniques, and generally improve driving skills. These Bakersfield California Mature Driver classes cover topics such as how to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots, how to monitor your own driving capabilities, vision and hearing changes, hazardous driving situations, and the effects of medication while driving. Courses include at least 400 minutes of instruction and carry a maximum fee of $30 in addition to a $1 DMV certificate charge, which can be used to obtain a Bakersfield California car insurance reduction, depending on your Bakersfield California insurance provider.

Bakersfield California Juvenile Driver Programs

Bakersfield California teen drivers are under special scrutiny from the Bakersfield California Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are a Bakersfield California teen driver and have received a traffic ticket, your driving license could be suspended if you fail to pay your Bakersfield California traffic ticket fine in a timely fashion, usually within six months of the violation. Upon your first at-fault accident, the DMV will send a warning letter. Then, if you are convicted for a second at-fault accident within a 12-month period, your driver's license will be suspended unless you are accompanied by a parent or licensed adult over 25. Bakersfield California teen drivers can find out more information about Bakersfield California traffic violations and point assignment at the Bakersfield California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Enrolling in a Bakersfield California online defensive driving course can help teens maintain a clean driving record as well as educate younger drivers and help avoid Bakersfield California traffic violations, Bakersfield California speeding tickets, and accidents in the first place. In addition, many Bakersfield California car insurance companies offer a discount for certification of a completed Bakersfield California online defensive driving course or Bakersfield California online traffic school. In addition to a possible Bakersfield California insurance rate reduction, Bakersfield California defensive driving courses are also recommended for new drivers because they teach practical skills that will help avoid accidents and traffic tickets in the future.

Bakersfield California Classroom Traffic Schools

Remember: the Bakersfield California Department of Motor Vehicles cannot refer drivers to a specific Bakersfield California defensive driving school or Bakersfield California traffic school, so make sure to check that a school is accredited with the state. You can remove most 1 point Bakersfield California speeding tickets and Bakersfield California traffic violations by taking an approved online Bakersfield California defensive driving class
