A clean driving record is when a driver’s history has no moving violations or accidents over the last three to five years. However, what constitutes a clean record can vary depending on the situation. For example, Uber, long-haul trucking companies, and car insurance providers have more strict standards for clean records.
If you have questions about how to remove a ticket from your record, contact a Miami expungement attorney for help.
Tickets for accidents caused by your driving and DUIs can impact your record the most. The more severe the incident, the harder it is to remove it from your record. Infractions are given points and vary depending on the infraction (such as a DUI-related accident or a speeding ticket).
Moving violations will land you anywhere from three to six points in Florida. Common infractions include:
Reckless driving – 4 points
Speeding – 3 points
Passing on entering/exit side of a school bus while it is stopped – 4 points
Failure to stop at a red light – 3 points
Failure to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian – 3 points
Leaving the scene of an crash with more than $50 of property damage – 6 points
Having a clean record can benefit you in several ways. Your insurance premium is likely to be far less than a record with multiple accidents.
