Does My Driving Record Ever Get Erased?
Unfortunately, while points that are added to your license get removed after 2 years, your driving record stays the same. Every time your get a ticket or citation while driving, it is put on your driving record. The citation, date and amount of points are recorded. The citation and date will remain even after the points are removed by the DMV, once the 2 year period ends or removed by you taking a Defensive Driving Course.
Although you can't erase your driving record, you can erase the points off your license that are accrued by getting driving tickets and citations. Traffic citation's points are removed 2 years after the traffic citation, getting 15 points on your license within 24 months will result in a license suspension. To avoid getting your license suspended, you can take a DDC/Defensive Driving Course once every 5 years and get up to 7 points removed from your Georgia driver's license. Once you have completed the class, taken your certificate of completion to the DMV and gotten the points reduced, you can take it to your insurance agent and see if they can reduce the insurance.
Having point on your license can cause your insurance premium to go up, specially if you are a young and new driver, or hinder you in getting a job, if it requires you do drive a lot and have a clean record. Taking the defensive driving course with Alfa Driving School will allow to be better prepared for the road, be a safer driver and save some money. The classes are insightful and educational without being boring or redundant, see what our students had to say:
"Took a defensive driving course here to reduce my insurance and couldn’t have had a better experience. The girl at the front was so sweet and helpful and the teacher, Ms. Margaret was nice and knew what she was talking about. I actually ended up learning a lot and enjoying the class. I’ll definitely tell my friends to come here." and, "I just took a defensive driving course at this location and it was great. The owner was very polite and professional. Also, the instructor was a plus and made me feel safe and confident. I would recommend this place to anyone."
So although you can't get rid of that driving record or erase past errors, Alfa Driving School is here to help you do the best next thing you can, take the defensive driving course from a well known and reputable school.
