The wait for a ticket to fall off a DMV record can seem to take forever as we get gouged from insurance companies. In California, the law says that most speeding tickets stay on your DMV record for 3 years with some exceptions. For example, a 100 plus violation vc22348b, stays on your record for seven years. If you are convicted of VC 22348b, otherwise known as driving over one hundred miles per hour, not only will you see the conviction for speeding remain on your MVR for at least 7 years since it is a 2 point violation in the state of CA, but the Judge will usually take your license for 30 days so be careful!
The Court will sometimes explain this to you but in most cases will simply leave you in the dark. The consequences will usually justify hiring the services of a speeding ticket attorney to keep the ticket off your record.
