If you are between 16 and 21 years of age and are caught speeding in Georgia it’s typically not a simple matter of just paying the ticket without any additional concerns. Each ticket issued has different circumstances and the under 21-year-old driver must appear in court in the majority of Georgia’s county and municipal courts when they hire a traffic attorney who will negotiate for a better resolution which could mean the charge itself will be reduced along with the points associated with that offense. Each outcome is different and can be determined by the driver’s license status(temporary learner’s permit or permanent), whether or not there have been any previous tickets on his/her record, and by the court itself. Usually, an in-person (NOT online) defensive driving course will be part of the resolution as with a younger driver Georgia courts want to make sure the ticket is a lesson learned. Reduced charges and points associated with speeding tickets or other moving violations, if the ticket handled by an experienced Georgia Traffic Lawyer, will have less impact on insurance rates
An increase in your insurance premiums is almost guaranteed if you just pay your under 21-year-old son or daughter’s speeding ticket or other moving violation. We all know how expensive it is to insure a teenage/young adult driver, even those with a clean driving record to date. Bear in mind that it only takes one single 4 point offense for an under 21 years of age to lose their Georgia Driver’s License. So hiring an attorney to fight your under 21 years old’s traffic ticket in Georgia could make a huge difference in preventing license suspension and insurance rate increases.
