There are ways in which you can reduce these points and restore your good driving record. Note that having points taken off your driving record will not affect any penalties you have been levied as a result of a particular offense.
Take a traffic safety course. Many states tie removal of points to the motorist's successful completion of such programs since they will learn to drive more safely and become less of a risk. They will also help keep your car insurance rates down.
However, these programs will not remove points acquired for more serious offenses, such as drunk driving. Many states will also let you use traffic school to remove points only every eighteen months to five years in order to discourage repeat violations.
Specifically, in California
, you can remove points by taking traffic school classes. It should be noted that you can only attend these classes every eighteen months and that most violations will stay on your record for at least three years, and major offenses such as reckless driving
, the maximum of ten years.
Once you have completed the traffic school classes then you send in the record of such to your auto insurance company and they usually will reduce your insurance rate about 10% or more depending your driver's license history.
You can contact the Californis DMV to find out when and where the traffic school classes are being held and sign up for one local to you.
