    If she pleads nolo contendre, it is not an admission of guilt and therefore cannot be used against her in any civil suit. Judges are reluctant to let a person use a plea of nolo contendre more than one time. She might want to save the nolo plea for a more serious charge where the consequences are more serious. Also, you should factor in how many points she already has on her driving record, and whether this charge will put her license at risk. If so, she should consider using the nolo plea.
