Defensive Driving Program
If you have received a traffic ticket in Arizona, then an Arizona State Approved Traffic School is a great way to dismiss your traffic ticket and lose the points from your driving records. Your insurance rates may not go up, either, as the infraction will not show on your driving record.
Your Arizona License
In the State of Arizona, driving is considered a privilege that must be earned. You can lose your driving privileges for a number of infractions and matters as varied as failure to pay child support, addiction to drugs or alcohol, failure to pay traffic violation fines, and even racing on the highway.
In Arizona, civil citations encompass any type of moving violation (including speeding, illegal parking, and disobeying traffic signals) that is not serious enough to be considered criminal. Traffic tickets do not appear on a criminal record, but they do add points to your license.
