Many insurers offer discounts up to 10% off premiums for clients who complete an online defensive driving course. This represents an average savings of $177.77 per year and $533.31 over three years per driver in Georgia. Check with your insurance provider to find out if you qualify for a defensive driving discount.

Can I Get My Ticket Dismissed in Georgia?

If you get a traffic ticket in Georgia, be prepared to pay the price. Not only will you be charged a fine for the violation, but points could be added to your driving record.

Speeding in Georgia

For example, drivers caught speeding through the State of Georgia will be assessed the following points:

2 Points – 15 to 18 mph over the speeding limit

3 Points – 19 to 23 mph over the speeding limit

4 Points – 24 to 33 mph over the speeding limit

6 Points – 34 mph or more over the speeding limit

Georgia Permits Point Reduction

Georgia residents may request up to 7 points removed once every 5 years, if they complete a defensive driving course. You should be familiar with all the requirements before applying for a Georgia DDS points reduction.  

Georgia Point System Details

Georgia uses a system that assigns points to traffic violations. If you are convicted of an offense, the court notifies the DMV and points are added to your driving record. The more serious the violation, the more points you receive. 

For example, speeding 15 mph over the speed limit registers 2 points, while aggressive driving could add up to 6 points. If you collect 15 points within 2 years, your license could be suspended.

Georgia drivers may be able to remove up to 7 points every 5 years. To be considered for point reduction, qualified drivers must successfully complete a defensive driving course and submit their certificate to the DMV. Visit the Georgia DDS website for more information.
