A: Under age 21 - Two moving violation convictions within 24 months triggers a license suspension. Court Supervision, when successfully completed, does not count as a conviction.

A: You should try to avoid a conviction on the new ticket as well. Technically, you are eligible for court supervision (a non-conviction sentence) twice within a 12 month period, but it is not automatic. It may be worth consulting with an attorney to assist you. Your license will not be suspended based on a single conviction (2 convictions within 24 months will cause a suspension for drivers under 21 years of age).

A: You should go to court and request Court Supervision again. As already mentioned, you are allowed two Court Supervisions in a twelve month period. Please note that this will be your last Supervision and your next ticket will likely result in a conviction.
