How long does a speeding ticket stay on record?

I got a speeding ticket in WI 2 years ago ($300+, was doing 70ish in a 55). Cop nailed me, no problems paying the ticket. I paid it on the spot.

Well, I thought that WI and IL didn't share info, but when I switched insurance companies recently (to State Farm), they say I've got a ticket on record. So my question is... how long will that stay on my record, and what can I do to get rid of it?

I dont think you can "get rid of it"

I think how long it stays on your record is dictated by how far back that particular insurance company looks at your record. Ive heard 3,5,7 and even 9 years so its a mystery to me too........................

State Farm goes back three years. They (the agent at the time of the quote) specificly told me if I wanted to be insured by them at a fair rate I would have to wait until that ticket had expired out of there system.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

you all are wrong....DMV only goes back 5 years. That is the record that the insurance companies pull. Same record you pull. Moving violations expire after 5 years.

wrong they stay forever and the state will be able to see everything from the very first one. Now will they use that against you in court it demands on the the case in front of you.

As to insurance companies 3 to 5 years depending on the company.
Most insurance companies only go back 3 years.

All of this is so dirty. Insurance companies have every method at their disposal to raise your premium, citizens have very few devices to help decrease their premium. Thankfully they started that program where you can go to traffic school to remove a ticket from your record; otherwise, just about everyone would have premiums over 1k. Then they kill me with the discounts. I remember a quote where I received 30.00 off for taking the MSF course. I then till them I had one accident three years ago and the rate jumps 400.00. Anything good on your record will keep your premium the same, anything bad and it sky rockets. It always flows in one direction
This game is ridiculous.

Okay this maybe off topic and not DIRECTLY related but when i had a ticket for seat belt in 03 and went to court to fight it the judge asked a guy next to him my record.(not sure who he was) He said other than this one i recieved a ticket for tinted windows (which was dismissed in 94), A tinted cover on my rear plate (dismissed in 93), and a speeding ticket from 1987! How were those on my record and how far back do they hold info? Especially when they were dismissed! They DO keep track! maybe not DMV but the SOS must!

When i went with State Farm in 93 they had no idea i recieved 3 speeding tickets in California in a 4 month period from 1992! Only a year and they showed me having a clean record. Thank Goodness!

I would really like to know a definitive answer on this just for curiosity sake!

courts will use your comeplete life history agasint you if need be.

supervisions fall off 2nd party viewing , insurance companyies etc.

traffic convictions stay on forever but refer to above depending on who see's them. common pratice for insurance companys is to go back 3-5 years.


btw i do not show ANY tickets what so ever on my record, even though ive gotten 50 by now in my life time

How did you manage that, did you use someone else's identity? Are we talking to witness protection Ken, or something else?

Tickets on your record ARE NOT forever if you have them motioned. Very easy to do. Basicly you pay a fee to remove older tickets in a court room... even if it was a conviction. Certain tickets cannot be removed.

If you ever get in enough trouble they make you get a "court purpose abstract" from the dmv that shows all tickets and even state police warnings that you've ever gotten.

BINGO!!! Give the man a cigar!

Most counties allow you to request a "Motion to Vacate". I have done it 2 or 3 times in Cook and Lake counties. You don't even need a lawyer to do it. Just be cool and gracious when you go before the judge.

I got pulled over for doing 45 in a 35. I thought that was typical in IL. Anyways cop stated I could go to traffic school and it would be erased from my records 6 months later if I kept it clean. When I switched to State Farm I informed them of it, and I still got awesome rates. Infact they stated they had to check it twice cause it was so low.

I think I may own the southside record for the most tickets issued to one person in a single stop while on a motorcycle. Try 14 tickets on for size. I knew the court system so well at the time and with the help of a lawyer friend I only had one of the 14 tickets stick to my record, "Fleeing and eluding" , some advise for the guys who like to run = Don't do it in broad daylight with no highways in sight, the cops come out of the woodwork on a sunday afternoon.

You need to get a copy of your driving record. Find out where the tickets took place...such as cook county, go to the circuit court and go to the clerk and tell them you want to Motion to Vacate and they will help you out.

They will give you this form > http://198.173.15.31/Forms/pdf_files/CCG0500.pdf

So what does Court Supervision mean? I got a speeding ticket in November and i was on supervision for 3 months. So..what does that actually mean then? Also, they did not mention anything about traffic school to me

Now do I need to vacate things that were supervisions. or only things that were convicted?
