Still Keeping Insurance Rates Low By Masking Tickets

For years, drivers with traffic tickets have been taking traffic school to fix their driving record and, despite the recent changes to CA state law, this hasn't changed. Motorists can still take traffic school once every 18 months to mask a traffic violation, like speeding, from public view on their driving record and thus their auto insurance rates will not go up.

Contrary to other articles and news releases, traffic school is still the only way you mask negative points on your DMV driving record. The only thing that has changed is for outstandingly bad drivers who keep piling up tickets. These egregious drivers will no longer be able to take advantage of a loophole in the old law that allowed them to take traffic school multiple times within a single 18 month period.
