California Traffic School 18 Month Rule

18 months

- question from 4/30/2020 by Ricky, filed under 18 months and Traffic Ticket Course

Am I eligible to take traffic school for 2 tickets received within 18 months?

I received 2 speeding tickets back in July 2018 within days of each other. I knew about traffic school so I paid the tickets and requested to attend a school with Los Angeles County. I took traffic school for the first ticket and the school sent a certificate to the court so I didn't get any points on my record from that ticket. The second speeding ticket I got a point on my record and I'm aware that the DMV rule is that you can only do traffic school once every 18 months. My question is now that the 18 months have passed can I do traffic school for that second ticket so I can remove that point? Says

Hello Ricky-

The DMV only allows you to take traffic school once every 18 months which is calculated from the violation dates. The violation date for your second ticket must be more than 18 months from the July 2018 date. If you received the second ticket within 18 months from that date, then you are not eligible for traffic school and the point would remain on your record for 3 years.

Please let us know if you have any further questions. Have a great day from #E1393.
