My daughter received 2 tickets 1. speeding and 2.careless driving on a probationary license? what can be done? will she lose her license?
Prosecutors are forbidden from plea bargaining a probationary driver to a no point ticket. She can probably work out a plea to one and the other would be dismissed. She’ll lose her license since she’ll have points during her probationary period. She may be able to restore it sooner with an approved driver improvement course.
More information is needed. Depending on the speed she can likely get onb ticket dismissed and plead to the other. If the speed is 4 points maybe use an attorney to get it down to 2 points total. That can often happen. She cannot get 0 points because she does not have a full license.
She is likely to wind up with at least 2 points out of the situation--I cannot tell you how many points the speeding ticket is without knowing the claimed speed over the limit- it is either 2, 4, or 5.
A lawyer can help her minimize points. To find an AVVO lawyer, click on the profile of lawyers answer this question.
Probationary drivers are strictly regulated and their cases are harder to work with. The Attorney General forbids prosecutors from plea bargaining no point tickets in regards to such drivers. Occasionally we can still work around that and end up with zero points, but that is far from certain. As a probationary driver, she also has to deal with the fact that she will be administratively suspended if she has anymore than two points. With that said, depending on the speed and other factors, it can be very possible to save her license and limit other consequences.
