In many cases, a person accused of a serious moving violation in Florida will retain an attorney from a Broward traffic defense law firm to defend him or her and keep points off the license. A certain amount of points can result in a suspension or revocation of driving privileges.
In some cases, drivers elect to enroll in a driver improvement course, which comes with several benefits:
- No points will be deducted from your license;
- The fine that accompanies your ticket may decrease as much as 18%; and
- Your insurance company won’t be able to raise your rates, except in cases in which you received 2 tickets in 18 months or 3 in 36 months, or you exceeded 15 miles per hours past the posted speed limit.
The ability to have the points associated with the infraction omitted from one’s driving record is an attractive option to many drivers. There are some limitations, however. If you’re a commercial driver, you won’t be eligible for driving school. Also, you may only elect to take driving school once within a year and no more than 5 times in your life.
Also, if you’re charged with a criminal traffic violation, such as a hit and run, you won’t be eligible for a driver improvement course. For a serious moving violation in Florida, an attorney from a Broward traffic defense law firm can defend your rights aggressively.
