My husband is traveling with our 2 sons on his way back to NY. My 17 yr was driving (permit) and got a speeding ticket in WI. Of course, said teenager will pay fine. Will points go on his NY permit? Thanks.

Good afternoon Esta,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your son's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Your son was fortunate enough to get his ticket in one of just 5 states in the US that do not participate in the nationwide Driver's License Compact. All 45 other states report convictions of traffic tickets to the home state of the driver. The other non-reporting states are Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Tennessee.

No, you son will not get points on his license and NY won't find out about the citation.

I wish you the best in 2013,

Thanks, Doug. Something to be grateful happened in one of the only 5 states. Phew! It's pretty straight forward from here. Son will pay traffic fine and hopefully learn lesson.
