Unfortunately, it is unlikely that your ticket will be dismissed if this is the only incorrect information. Transposing your name will likely be considered what is called a “scrivener’s error”. Prosecutors will probably be allowed to amend the ticket to reflect your correct name. If you have...Read more »
Occurred in Whitestown, Indiana. Will put 2 points on driving record. The deferral will cost $80.50 more than the ticket. If no citations in a year, then the case will be dismissed. I am assuming dismissal will mean no record of speeding or the ticket and no points on driving record.
Your options are to pay the ticket and have a conviction and points on your record as well as the possibility of your insurance rates increasing. Take the deferral option, stay out of trouble and the case gets dismissed and the BMV will never know of the ticket. Though if you do get another...Read more »

Expired plates should not add any points to your record since it is not a moving violation. If you have already renewed your plates; I suggest contacting the prosecutor's office and provide them proof. The prosecutor may be willing to dismiss the case for you being in compliance.
It can be used to attack credibility of the witness, however unless there is something more, as long as the witness is accurate with everything else, including identifying the defendant as the violator in Court, it most likely will not be enough to help the defendant.

If the suspension ended in 2014 then there should be no reason it would prevent you getting a license. However, there may be a reinstatement fee.

It depends on the person's status with the BMV. IF they are suspended-infraction, then they will continue to get tickets and not criminally charged. Though, if they plead to one of the DWS tickets, the status will change to DWS-prior and the person could be arrested and criminally charged.
There is not enough information to answer your question accurately. If you have a myBMV account, print off a copy of your driving record and schedule an appointment with a criminal defense attorney who can look at your record to determine what can be done. Depending on the circumstances the HTV...Read more »

It may be possible to set aside the judgment. However, if you are suspended for a proof of insurance violation, even setting aside the judgment may not remove the suspension. You may be eligible for specialized driving privileges if you can not clean up the suspensions.
