Get a Ticket Dropped with Kentucky Traffic School

If you complete a defensive driving course, you may be able to get your ticket dropped along with the accompanying points against your license.

The following reasons may qualify you for a defensive driving course:

  • Conviction of a traffic offense.
  • Having a license in good standing.
  • A referral by your traffic court.

NOTE: You can only enroll in Kentucky traffic school one time every 12 months for the purpose of getting a ticket dropped.

If traffic school becomes mandatory, your court and the DMV will send you details outlining the requirements.

Opting to take the course online means you need to complete the course within 30 days to keep your license from being suspended.

Choosing the classroom version of the course requires that you enroll in under 30 days after being notified.

NOTE: Not qualifying for traffic school means you cannot have your ticket dropped and points will likely be added to your driver's license. Too many accumulated points puts you at risk of a license suspension.
