Can you get Tickets Removed from your Record

Can you get Tickets Removed from your Record

This one will not please you. If you wait long enough, sands of time will eventually remove the ticket. Tickets usually drop off your record within a few years, though it depends on the state.

If your ticket is not yet expired, the chances of it being removed from your record are slim. However, as always, you should consult with a local attorney since local and state laws differ. Both California and Washington require you to ask for the traffic school-deferment option before a conviction is entered as part of a plea deal - fail to do that, and you'll be stuck waiting years for the ticket to go away.

It's not out of goodness of heart that prosecutors and courts offer those deals. So they don't have to go through the rigmarole of a trial, they offer these deals. When you plead guilty, you make their job easier, so they are willing to give you a break if you are a first-time offender.
