1. Never Just Pay The Ticket

If you just pay the traffic ticket without electing a hearing or traffic school you will be assessed points. Points lead to:

  • Higher Insurance Rates.
  • Driver's License Suspensions.

How to check to see if your driver's license is suspended.

2. Elect A Driving School

Florida law allows you to elect a driving school once every 12 months up to five times. Reasons you may not be eligible for traffic school:

  • You have elected driving school fives times.
  • You elected driving school within the last 12-months.
  • You have a Commercial Drivers License.
  • The citation requires a mandatory court appearance.

Elect a traffic school if you can. The Clerk will make you pay for the ticket immediately and will give you 90 days to complete the school and provide a copy of the certificate to the clerk's office.

3. Hire a Traffic Lawyer - Elect a Traffic Hearing

If you elect a hearing I would strongly suggest that you hire a traffic lawyer to represent you. In fact, don't bother electing the hearing - when you hire us we will do everything for you.

You should elect a hearing (Hire Us) if you cannot take the driving school option and:

I do not advocate that you elect a hearing without hiring an attorney to represent you. However, you can make the election on your own and hire a lawyer before the hearing.
