Am I Eligible for Miami Traffic School? How does this Work?
Speeding citations are considered civil infractions. These civil infractions are not punishable by a jail sentence, and in fact in most cases can be disposed of by a fine payment, or even by taking a traffic school course. Unless yours is a serious violation, a court appearance is not necessary. If your citation involved speeds in excess of 30mph of the limit or included an accident where serious injury occurred, you will not be eligible. You will also not be eligible if a child under six years old was left by you in a vehicle by them self.
This program is only available for a total of five-times in your driving career. If you have previously taken a Driver Improvement Course, at least a year must pass before you can take another Miami driving school course.
Here’s how it works:
- You must provide the Clerk your payment in full. This must occur before the end of 30 days after getting your ticket. Major credit cards are accepted, or checks should be made out to the Miami-Dade County Clerk of Court. Payment can also be done by phone or on the internet.
- You will then get 120 more days to successfully complete your Miami traffic school course.
- If this is the option you select, you must pay and complete Florida traffic school within the 120 days or you will end up getting your license suspended, face more fines, and get points added to your driving record.
If you are still unsure of your eligibility, check the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles traffic school eligibility tool.
What are the Biggest Advantages of Florida Traffic School?
There are actually several.
- You will not have additional points assessed to your Florida driver license record.
- The citation will be listed as “adjudication withheld” on your driving record.
- You can prevent higher auto insurance rates.
- You may actually learn something!
What are my Other Options for my Miami Traffic Tickets?
If your violation is considered payable, it will be indicated on your yellow copy of the ticket. You will have 30 days from the date of getting your ticket to choose one of the following:
- Pay the fine
- Plea “not guilty” and go to court
- Take a driver improvement course
If you do not make a choice within 30 days, your Florida driver’s license could be suspended. You will also face the additional costs of extra fees. If you do have your license suspended, it will result in even more fees to get it reinstated. This is not a path you should choose.
