Arkansas Ticket Dismissal

Arkansas uses a point system to identify problem drivers. Each traffic violation on a driver’s record is assigned specific number of points (a range of 3-8 points designates the severity of the violation).

Too many points accrued within a certain timeframe could lead to probation or suspension of driving privileges.

You must check with your court to find out if you qualify for a ticket dismissal diversion program. If approved, verify with authorities that the DriveSafe Online Defensive Driving Course satisfies their traffic school requirements.
