Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what is the best thing to do now. Should the amount be paid online or any help that i could get from you to avoid points on driving license ? Just would like to get the suggestion so that i can proceed accordingly. Will i get any negative points if i pay the amount online to the courts. At the moment, i have +1 point on my driving license. Total amount to be paid is $193

It depends on what your driving record looks like. If someone has a good record, usually (not always though) a court will cut them a break on the fine and/or the speed (as in the judge may reduce the speed over to a lesser number). The risk with that is that you may end up with a judge who doesn't want to do anything for you, and assesses court costs on top of the fine that you've already been charged. But generally, with someone who has a good record, it is a calculated risk. It is up to you if you want to try for a better result in court.

If you pay the ticket, you will get 4 points on your record (if the court reduces to 11-15 mph over, it will only carry 3 points; 6-10 mph over is 2 points). If you reach six points, you will have to take a written examination to keep your license. But if you pass the written exam, 2 points will be removed from your license.
