Keeping Citations Off Your Record

Points will not be added to your driver's record for most traffic citations if you attend Driver Improvement School. For more information about this program and associated fees, please contact Metropolitan Court Customer Service at (505) 841-8151.

Most moving violations have points associated with them. Points may affect your privilege to drive and/or your insurance rates.  Points will not be added to your driving record for certain moving violations if you attend Driver Improvement School.

Driver Improvement School may be offered to you during traffic arraignment. If you have attended Driver Improvement School within 18 months of receiving the new citation, you cannot go to Driver Improvement School again.

For information about the school and how it may benefit you, please call the Metropolitan Court Customer Service Division at (505) 841-8151. There is a fee to attend this school.

Note: Look carefully at your citation. If the "ordinance box" is checked on your citation, you have been cited under City ordinance, rather than state law. If so, there are certain differences with which you need to be familiar.  The fines for speeding under City ordinance are MANDATORY. Registration and attendance at Driver Improvement School is not a permitted option.
