FYI:  Taking a point reduction course does not remove three points from your driving record. You get a three-point credit on your driving record. Once a fine has been paid, points for that violation go on your driving record and there is nothing you can do to get them off. They automatically drop off after three years. No matter what you may be told by someone to the contrary, it is not so.

 

SUGGESTION:  If this is your first violation, you may want to plead "not guilty" on your citation. That results in a court hearing and you may be able to make a deal with the court, prosecutor or police officer. If you are able to make a deal and a fine is not paid, points will not go on your NH driving record. Please contact us at 1-800-332-3748 if you have any question.
