Is there any way to keep this citation off my driving record?
There is an opportunity to take a defensive driving class in order to keep a moving violation from appearing on your driving record. If you have no moving violations and have not attended a defensive driving school within the past 3 years, you are eligible for traffic school. You may sign up for school by emailing the court clerk before your due date. This will keep the violation off of your driving record and insurance. Be prepared to pay the $75 cost of the citation when signing up for traffic school. (NOTE: CDL holders are not eligible for traffic school.)

Email the court clerk at court@nolensvilletn.gov to register for an online traffic school.

What if I can't attend court on the date I am scheduled for?

If you have already emailed the court clerk and received information for a Zoom trial but are unable to attend at the scheduled time, please email the court clerk before the trial date and time to avoid receiving a Failure to Appear.

What if I go to court, but don't do everything the Judge orders?
