If you receive a moving violation ticket, your rates can be affected by the ticket.In California you have the option to go to traffic school to remove the ticket from your record. You can attend a class in person, or in many areas you can do the class online. While it is an additional cost to take the course, you should seriously consider this, since it will keep your rates as they are. Also, if you were to receive another ticket within 18 months, the only charge will be for the one ticket. With a second ticket, your rates can go up dramatically as you would lose your “good driver discount” with the second ticket.Call the local DMV to be sure you are eligible to take the course and find out what options you have for the course. You will also have to pay the fine for the ticket as well as the cost of the course.
