Getting a ticket for speeding or a traffic violation happens to all kinds of people from all kinds of life. No matter what the background, a traffic ticket in Ball Ground, GA or elsewhere involves more than just a hefty fine. It also includes a mark on one’s driving record, and it can include penalties depending on the seriousness of violation. And finally, it has a direct impact on one’s car insurance, driving up the cost due to being a higher risk as a driver. However, just because a person gets a ticket doesn’t mean that one is automatically going to face a hefty bump in a car insurance premium.
Drivers in Ball Ground, GA and elsewhere often have the choice of driving school after a violation. Often provided for first time violations, driving school is the system’s way of providing a driver a second chance. It typically involves a full day like a Saturday (about eight hours of education), a quiz at the end, and then certification that the driver attended. It’s more than likely that the driver will also be taught about the ramifications of reckless driving, how to drive safely, and what to remember when caught in a bad situation for emergencies. The quiz is simply to make sure the driver was paying attention during the day and the lesson sunk in. Once complete the school completion then goes back to traffic court and wipes out the traffic violation. That means it never goes on the driver’s record, and no related negative impact to insurance coverage. Ideally, the training should make a person a better driver, but avoiding the mark on the record is a big plus as well.
