Santa Maria Traffic School Details

Santa Maria California Traffic Violations

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

Santa Maria California Points System and Suspension of Licenses

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

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

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

The Santa Maria California Department of Motor Vehicles does not recommend specific Santa Maria California defensive driving schools or Santa Maria 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 Maria California traffic violation, your ticket could be dismissed if you attend a Santa Maria California internet defensive driving course or Santa Maria California online traffic school.

The Benefits of a Clean Santa Maria California Driving Record

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

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

Santa Maria California Mature Driver Discount Programs

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

Santa Maria California Juvenile Driver Programs

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

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

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