Both are serious charges, but reckless driving in a lesser charge, but you're up for grabs when the judge sees you. Hope you get it good if you're guilty ... you don't own the road!

Getting cited for reckless driving will result in four points on your license

Reckless driving? I think that depends on how many offenses you have against your drivers license, the laws in the state that you live in, and how bad the reckless driving is.

You would have to plead your case to a Judge about getting the ticket reduce it. Since it is a reckless driving chare the penalties are stiffer. Now if it was a regualr speeding ticket, you could take a defensive driving course to get the ticket off your record.

Reckless Driving is generally 3 points on your license and on your insurance record. This is the same as for a DUI as far as insurance goes or for having an accident. These are all 3 points. There's a joke about what's the difference in a DUI or Reckless Driving? The punchline is having a lawyer. A lawyer or the police officer themselves try to tell you they achieved something for you by getting your violation reduced to Reckless Driving instead of DUI but in reality it makes no difference and the Judge will almost always do this for you if you ask anyway without paying an Attorney. Save your money to pay for the insurance increase.

Reckless driving is considered a misdemeanor, and the federal statutes do not prohibit any such thing. You need to look at your state and local statutes to determine what regulations they may or may not have,

Usually not, unless the terms of probation specified otherwise. If you're not certain, you can ask your probation officer, and they'll be able to tell you what is or is not in violation of your probation.

If you are referring to an Honorable Discharge from the military after having been convicted of reckless driving - I would say your chances are probably pretty good if the rest of your military service was exemplary. At the very least you might receive a General DIscharge Under Honorable Conditions.

Yes it does. In fact the person getting that ticket will get some serious prison time for breaking a law in a different state. I would leave the country.

It is important to have experience before getting a driver's license. In order to obtain a driver's license you will have to take both a written and driving test. Without driving experience it would be impossible to pass the driving test.
