    Hey guys...
    These are my tickets....

    74/55
    64/55
    65/55
    65/55
    50/40
    80/55 - Got last night
    No Seatbelt
    Rear ending a school bus

    Not all of these went on my record... my insurance was up to 900 dollars for 6 months for liability on a P.O.S truck... and I drive a 98 Civic EX under my dads name that Im "suppoused" to pay but he pretty much does.

    Im 17 years old and I currently unemployed... I can't afford to pay this crap, any ideas how/when my insurance can drop? Any ideas which ones ARE forsure on my record or anyway I can check my driving record?

    Thanks guys

    your lucky you haven' gotten it revoked as a habitual offender (they did that to both my cousin and brother for 1 year)

    7 years before they come off your record from the year it happened, soooo...... if it happened in January of 2000, it won't come off till the end of your insurance cycle that ends after january of 2007.....

    if you want to know which are on your record, it should come with your policy at the begging of the policy year, or you can call your Insurance agent.....

    Thats for mass bill:

    All other states with the exception of New Jersey tickets will fall off after three consecutive years from teh date of conviction. If all of those are on your record now you better start looking for another company...and under NO circumstance do you want to call your ins agent and ask about tickets, they'll run your mvr :)

    NH is the same way, and so isn't S.C. I wne to HS in NH and took my drivers ed there and they have the same laws. My cousin was excited last summer when I was done for his wedding. He got 4 speeding tickets his first month and they finally came off his record last year.....

    Your record will clear 3 years from your last offence. Wrecks come off after 5 years. If you can take defensive driving and lower you insurance to liability. Also you can call your agent and ask for him to raise your deductibles.
    (This is of course how it is in Texas other states may have different statutes)

    Damn, glad I'm a girl....I pay $880 a year.

    oh, and depending on what state you are in determines how long points stay on your license. Most are removed every two years i think however, the stay on your dmv report 5-7 years. At least here in GA they do. Insurance usually keeps them on record (you pay for it) for about 3 yrs. SLOW DOWN!!!!!

    Texas falls off after 3 years... I've sat in the front of a squad car waiting for a tow truck to come after a wreck, and he ran my record- tickets from 3 years ago were gone.
