If you have a very old ticket in New York, first go to the closest(or any) Department of Motor Vehicle Office and request a driver's license check. You will need to have a form of ID to verify your identity. If the ticket was never paid, it's likely your license has been suspended. If so, the suspension will indicte what court in New York the suspension came from. Once you determine the court, go on-line and type in the location, and information regarding contact numbers to the court clerk will be provided. You can also call the State Police and obtain info for the court. Then contact the court and make arrangements to pay the fine. Also, many courts issue traffic warrants for people that fail to appear. It's not a big deal, unless you get stopped with a suspended license with an outstanding warrant, which interupts your travel plus adds another violation of operatiing on a suspended license. I wouldn't drive to the local PD or State Police barracks until you know you're not suspended.

As with most states, a speeding ticket stays on the record for three years. There is little that can be done to have the record expunged.

In all the states I know of, the speeding ticket is forgiven after you pay the fine (you are square with the law) but the points on your license stay there until they expire (usually two years, but check for your own state).

You were stopped for speeding and had no drivers license. Most likely the state will issue you a drivers license number to hold the ticket and after a few more years it will go on your license when you get one. Most likely you will not be eligible for a few more years.

How long a speeding ticket remains on your license depends on which state you live in. Your local DMV can tell you how many years your driving record covers. If the ticket is unpaid, it will show on the record until it's taken care of and the DMV will suspend your license. As for whether whether NY will find out about it, traffic infractions follow your license; they're not confined to any one state.

Yes it will, I got a speeding ticket in Florida with a Alabama driver's license and it went on my Alabama license.No, Colorado doesn't recognize out of state speeding tickets.All 50 states now share a database with all tickets for the past 30 years. If you have an unpaid ticket anywhere in the country, you will not be able to renew your Colorado license. However, no state uses out of state tickets to suspend your license

The answer will vary depending on which state you received the ticket. Speaking for NY, the ticket remains on your driving record for 18 months. However, if you never answered the ticket by mailing it in or appearing in court, your license could be, and likely would be, suspended in New York. This suspension would remain indefinitely, removed only when the ticket was answered.

The statute of limitation for unpaid speeding tickets in Texas is two years. It does not mean that unpaid speeding tickets can not be prosecuted.

If it's a simple speeding ticket, and doesn't carry any criminal charges such as reckless endangerment, there's no need to worry about it. If you've only gotten one speeding ticket in 15 years, you're doing pretty well for yourself.

It is relevant to your state insurance laws. Contact your agent!

they say 3 years but insurance companys will always use it against you even if they say there not

User Avatar

Yes. If you have not paid the ticket, the court has found you guilty and entered the judgment on the books. There is no statute of limitations once you have been charged and given notice to appear (the ticket).

You will get at least three points on your UK license if you get a speeding ticket. You can also get a fine. If you get more than 12 points on your license within three years, you could lose your ability to drive.
