My question involves a ticket in Charlotte County , Florida . I got my first ticket for speeding ( Violation of traffic device ) while I was driving from Tampa to Fort Myers . I was doing 80 something to 90 on a 70 speed - limit area on I - 75 Charlotte County . The state trooper officer who gave me the ticket said I could take the class to erase the points on my license . I have already paid for the ticket . I sent a money order and a copy of the ticket to Charlotte County Clerk of the Court . I haven't heard from the court . Should I go on the INTERNET and take the class and send a copy of my certificate to the Court or should I wait for the Court to contact me or should I contact it first before I take the class ? Thanks for your help .
