Florida Traffic School – Point System & Traffic Tickets

As you may know, driving in the State of Florida, or any state in the United States for that matter, is a privilege, not a right. If you break the driving laws, either once or multiple times, you will suffer the consequences.

When you fail to follow the rules of the road and receive Florida traffic tickets, you are able to participate in a Florida Traffic School to make sure no negative points reach your driver’s license. You do have to elect to take traffic school with the court, however. If you choose to not participate in a driver safety course for Florida, the DMV will assign points to your driver’s license and your Florida auto insurance may raise a great amount.

The Florida DMV Points are as follows:

*Note: If you receive a violation outside of the State of Florida, you will still receive the same amount of points on your driver’s license. The State of Florida has reciprocal agreements with most other states.Click here for more information on receiving a moving traffic violation outside of Florida.

Florida DMV points and the Florida Point System are no joke! If you acquire too many points on your driver’s license by receiving too many Florida traffic tickets or out-of-state traffic citations, the State of Florida and your Florida auto insurance provider will take action.

Your Florida driver’s license will be suspended if:

Receiving Florida traffic tickets and being assessed Florida DMV points doesn’t just affect your driver’s license, it also affects your Florida auto insurance. Did you know that depending on the type of violation you receive, a single ticket can up your auto insurance premiums by as much as 22 percent? This study was conducted by Insurance.Com and used over 490,000 policy quotes. With the cost of traffic citations rising, you wouldn’t want to cause your insurance premiums to do so as well!

All this can be avoided if you elect to take traffic school before points are assigned to your driver’s license. For more information on taking a Florida traffic school, click here.
