Does a Ticket go on your Record Before Court

Does a Ticket go on your Record Before Court

Technically, getting supervision but not being dismissed is not visible to the majority of people. In the case of the alleged violation, the violation is still considered on a non-public portion of your record which is available on the record of more than just the police, prosecutors, attorneys, and the court, as well as the state secretary of state who compiles the record. In order to explain the specific differences between supervision and conviction, a full consultation is necessary. The primary difference for most people is that, when supervision is successfully completed, insurance companies and employers are not told about a violation such as speeding.

The court driving record is compiled by the secretary of state, so the ticket shouldn't be on your record. Violations are reported to them by the court. Upon dismissal or judgment of a ticket (conviction, supervision, etc.), court reports are only mailed. Since no judgment has been entered yet, the ticket you will appear for in court on your record will not yet appear because it has not been adjudicated.

In conclusion, I would caution you against attending traffic school if you have received a ticket in the last year as well as avoiding court appearances. In these situations, most prosecutors will deny requests for supervision so you should take care if you want to make such a request. Most of the time, it is much better to go to court if you wish to receive court supervision.
