Bristol, TN asked in Traffic Tickets for Virginia

Q: Sentenced to driving school in va for #2 ticket, had #1 in TN. Got #3 after court sen. and before class. Can still take?

The 1st ticket in Tn was a failure to obey road sign. #2 was a reckless driving ticket in VA because my wheel axel snapped while turning sharp and lost control and crashed the car. This is when I was sentenced to driving school. #3 was a red light in VA that i got after I was sentenced to driving school but before I have taken the course. Am i still eligible to take the course and fix the second ticket? Someone told me that you cannot get any more tickets between the court ruling and the deadline to finish the class. Can I still take the class?

A: You can probably still take the class, but one of the requirements to having the court reduce/dismiss the charge is that you obtain no new tickets for a certain amount of time after you are sent to driving school. Call or meet with a traffic attorney, if you don't already have one, to review the paperwork from ticket #2, and plan to go to driving school anyway.
