Traffic School
Unfortunately, Georgia does not offer traffic school as an option for keeping the ticket off your driving record. For speeding tickets, the judge may offer to reduce your speed to keep it under the requirement for reporting to insurance companies. The catch is you'll usually have to accept a guilty plea.
Your Georgia License
In the State of Georgia, 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.
County Matters
Regardless of where you live, you must follow the rules and laws of the county where the citation was received. Select the county from the list above.
