Speeding Tickets/Citation records

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Will be filing for Citizenship this year (God's grace). Have a question about the infamous citations/traffic violation records. I checked with my state's department of driver services, and the only options for driving historical data they have to provide is either 3 years back, or 7 years back. My question how far back does the USCIS want us to pull records? Since I can only go back 7 years, will it be a problem? I obtained an MVR (motorvehicle driving record) and I only have one traffic violation, which I plan on going to the court and getting a certified disposition. However, I just want to clarify that a 7 year driving history will be ok for USCIS.

Thanks guys.

I would definately suggest going here. This is the best place to gather information about traffic tickets and what you need to do (if anything). There is a lot of mis-information out there about the traffic tickets and this thread being ongoing for a few years now, would be your best bet for answers rather then on here...

Thanks, seems like the safest thing to do is to answer yes on questions on arrests, citations etc then provide whatever information one has. It's just that the Georgia DMV records only go back 7 years. I'm wondering if the USCIS uses some other database that goes beyond 7 years history

lax75,

Although the DMV can only provide you information 7 years back, your local county court (where you paid for your tickets) will have records of your ticket history. I live in Texas and when I checked my driving record from Texas DMV, the record is clean (no history of my tickets). However, when I called my local county court, the clerk said that she has record of my past traffic ticket.

I hope this helps

hi! i had a similar experience with yours, i had a citation given to me and i could not drive for 6 months, i did reflect in on my n400 and also attached a letter of explanation for the incident, and i also signed it. During my interview, the IO asked me about the outcome of the citation and she also asked to see the original ticket and citation document.

Oh, I did also attached a copy of the ticket and citation letter in my packet when i applied for it.


Luke 18:27 Jesus said" what is impossible to men is possible with God."

Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
