Santa Clara Traffic School Details

Santa Clara California Traffic Violations

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

Santa Clara California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

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

Attending a Santa Clara California Defensive Driving School or Santa Clara California Traffic School

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

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

The Benefits of a Clean Santa Clara California Driving Record

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

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

Santa Clara California Mature Driver Discount Programs

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

Santa Clara California Juvenile Driver Programs

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

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

Santa Clara California Classroom Traffic Schools

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