What can you do about a Florida traffic ticket?

Florida provides three options for drivers who receive a traffic citation (moving violation). You should consider these options very carefully before you make a decision as to what your Florida traffic ticket plan is going to be. Don't just do the first thing that comes to mind – you might regret it later!

Option #1:

You can simply pay your Florida traffic ticket and accept the points associated with your offense. These points will automatically go on your driving record, and can even be assessed on your record if you hold an out of state license.

Some of the more common ticket offenses are listed below.

  • Speeding 16 miles or more over the limit – 4 points.
  • Speeding 15 miles or less over the limit – 3 points.
  • Reckless driving – 4 points.
  • Passing a stopped school bus – 4 points.
  • Driving during restricted hours – 3 points.

Accumulation of too many Florida traffic ticket points can result in license suspension or revocation. Your Florida driver license will be suspended automatically if you receive too many points according to the following schedule:

  • 12 points in 12 months = 1 month suspension
  • 18 points in 18 months = 3 month suspension
  • 24 points in 36 months = 1 year suspension

Not only do you risk license suspension if you choose Florida traffic ticket option #1, you also stand a greater chance of having your automobile insurance rate increase. In fact, your insurance costs could skyrocket from just one Florida ticket. It's pretty clear that option #1, while chosen by many Florida drivers, is not really a good way to address your Florida traffic ticket.

Option #2:

You can fight your Florida ticket in court. If you hire a Florida ticket attorney, you will have to pay attorney fees and you might still lose your case. In many cases, a ticket attorney will win a case, but the defendant will still be ordered to attend a basic driver improvement course anyway! That defendant could have saved time and money by simply choosing option #3 instead of option #2.

Option #3:

You can elect to attend a State approved 4 hour basic driver improvement course (also known as BDI school or Florida traffic school) such as the course offered by Florida's First Traffic School. Electing to attend Florida traffic school for your Florida ticket will entitle you to an insurance benefit. Your automobile insurer will be prohibited by law* from raising your rate, canceling your policy, or non-renewing it. You can take advantage of this fantastic Florida traffic ticket insurance benefit by signing up for Florida traffic school online right here on our website.

Note: The insurance benefit described above does not apply if your Florida traffic ticket was the result of a crash in which you were at fault.

To make sure you are elible for option #3, answer the questions below:

  • Have you already elected to attend a BDI course for a Florida traffic ticket that you received within the past 12 months?
  • Have you elected to attend a BDI course five times before?
  • Do you currently hold a Florida Commercial Motor Vehicle license?**

If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," you cannot choose option #3 for your Florida traffic ticket.
