Reopen Traffic Ticket Case to Clean Points on my DMV Record

Reopen Case

- question from 7/31/2020 by Deyvid, filed under Reopen Case and Traffic Ticket Case

I want know if I can do the traffic school again for some 2-year old points on my DMV Driving Record?


My driving record shows that I have a couple of points from some traffic tickets in Ventura County that I received a few years ago. My auto insurance is really high because of the multiple points that I have. My insurance says that I might be able to take traffic school so the DMV can remove my points. I want to clean up my driving record, so can I take this course to do that? Says

Hello Deyvid-

Unfortunately, you usually cannot take traffic school to remove long-standing points or tickets currently on your driving record. The case must be open and approved for traffic school by the court where your ticket is filed.

With that said, you can try contacting the court to request that they reopen your case. Depending on your situation, some courts may reopen the case and allow you to enroll at

If you are eligible and approved, you will need to pay the required administrative fee and the court will assign you a traffic school due date. Once you complete traffic school and the court has processed your certificate with the DMV, then the point would be removed and your driving record gets updated.

Please also note, you can only take traffic school once every 18 months which is calculated from the violation dates.

Please let us know if you have any further questions. #E1393.
