Modesto Traffic School Details

Modesto California Traffic Violations

If you have been charged with a Modesto California traffic violation or Modesto California speeding ticket, the Modesto 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 Modesto California traffic violation or Modesto California speeding ticket. Modesto 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 Modesto California online defensive driving course, you can receive a Modesto California ticket dismissal and remove points from your license.

Modesto California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

The Modesto California Department of Motor Vehicles issues points to your Modesto California driving record based on the type of Modesto California traffic violation. There are two levels of Modesto California traffic violations: 1-point offenses and 2-point offenses. See the Modesto California DMV website for a complete list of Modesto California traffic violations and Modesto 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 Modesto California DMV will notify you when you are halfway to a Modesto California license suspension. Because you can only remove 1-point offensive with a Modesto California defensive driving course, it is important to be aware of your Modesto California driver's license record and take steps accordingly. Your Modesto 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 Modesto California driving record in two ways. First, 1-point Modesto California traffic violations will automatically clear after three years, as well as most 2-point Modesto California traffic violation offenses. However, you can attend a Modesto California internet defensive driving school or Modesto California online traffic school to keep 1-point violations from being added to your driver's license in the first place.

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

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

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

The Benefits of a Clean Modesto California Driving Record

A clean Modesto California driving record can help you in several ways. By taking a Modesto California online defensive driving course, you can remove 1-point Modesto California traffic violations from your Modesto California driver record. Because you can only take one Modesto 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 Modesto California license will be suspended. But you can avoid having your driver's license suspended or revoked by attending an approved Modesto California online traffic school or Modesto California online defensive driving course.

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

Modesto California Mature Driver Discount Programs

Modesto California drivers 55 and older are eligible to receive car insurance discount for completing an approved Modesto California Mature Driver Discount Program. There are many Modesto California Mature Driver courses designed to teach current road rules, defensive driving techniques, and generally improve driving skills. These Modesto 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 Modesto California car insurance reduction, depending on your Modesto California insurance provider.

Modesto California Juvenile Driver Programs

Modesto California teen drivers are under special scrutiny from the Modesto California Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are a Modesto California teen driver and have received a traffic ticket, your driving license could be suspended if you fail to pay your Modesto 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. Modesto California teen drivers can find out more information about Modesto California traffic violations and point assignment at the Modesto California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Enrolling in a Modesto California online defensive driving course can help teens maintain a clean driving record as well as educate younger drivers and help avoid Modesto California traffic violations, Modesto California speeding tickets, and accidents in the first place. In addition, many Modesto California car insurance companies offer a discount for certification of a completed Modesto California online defensive driving course or Modesto California online traffic school. In addition to a possible Modesto California insurance rate reduction, Modesto 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.

Modesto California Classroom Traffic Schools

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