A Points Suspension is one of the many ways that your privilege to drive may be suspended. If you accumulate a specified amount of points within a certain timeframe, the DMV will issue a license suspension. Points are added to a record when someone is convicted of a moving violation. Paying a ticket counts as a guilty plea and a conviction. Before admitting guilt by paying the ticket, call Gans Law to discuss your options. If you’ve already received a points suspension or have one pending, we may be able to help in getting it removed.
If you make an election to complete traffic school or you are ordered by the Court to attend traffic school, the link to the Florida Online Traffic School can be found here.
