Killeen, TX asked in Military Law and Traffic Tickets for California

Q: I received a Ticket on a Military base in Texas. My DL from CA will it go on my record if so can I go to traffic school

Ticket was written for "not stoping in the right place" at a stop sign. was at Fort hood in TX. My Drivers license is out of California. I am a Military spouse but did not show my Military ID because I wasn't asked for it. I had a pass and was driving Uber at the time of the ticket. My main concern is I don't want this going on my Driving record. I will gladly go to traffic school to keep that from happening. but as I understand it going on your record depends on the state your license is from and from what i have read CA will put it on my driving record if it is from another state. This is from a Military Police and is a Federal ticket.

A: If it is a federal ticket, yes it will carry points. Generally you can go to magistrate's court and resolve the ticket under state law. I am not aware of the options to avoid points under Texas law.
