If you have had no moving violations on your driving record in any jurisdiction for the 3 years prior to the date that the Officer wrote you the citation, the usual case is that you will be considered to be eligible for Traffic Safety School, and that option may be presented to you when you come to Court and enter a plea of guilt on the moving violation charge. (Examples of moving violations are speeding, running a stop light or a stop sign, following too closely, etc., and do not include insurance, registration and equipment violations.) Traffic Safety School is offered at the discretion of the Judge. If you need information about your driving history, you may obtain such information by contacting the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.
If you do not wish to come to court on the charge, but want the Judge to look at your proof of insurance and consider dismissing the charge for compliance, you may fax your proof of insurance to the Deputy Clerk at (931) 486-0516. The Deputy Clerk will show your proof to the Judge, who will then consider whether dismissal of the insurance charge for compliance is appropriate, and you will be notified of the outcome by the Deputy Clerk.
