Richmond Traffic School Details

Richmond California Traffic Violations

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

Richmond California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

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

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

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

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

The Benefits of a Clean Richmond California Driving Record

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

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

Richmond California Mature Driver Discount Programs

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

Richmond California Juvenile Driver Programs

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

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

Richmond California Classroom Traffic Schools

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