San Mateo Traffic School Details

San Mateo California Traffic Violations

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

San Mateo California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

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

Attending a San Mateo California Defensive Driving School or San Mateo California Traffic School

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

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

The Benefits of a Clean San Mateo California Driving Record

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

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

San Mateo California Mature Driver Discount Programs

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

San Mateo California Juvenile Driver Programs

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

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