Question: If you get a ticket with a learner’s permit does it go on your driving record?
Answer: If you get a ticket while driving on your learner’s permit, it will go on your driving record. In Florida, a driver who is under the age of 18 must hold their learner’s permit for one year before being eligible to apply for a regular operator’s license. If you get a ticket during that period, your year begins again as of the date of the ticket. However, if you attend a driving school and your ticket, is “non-adjudicated” you can avoid having to start your year over again. You can only do that for one ticket. If you get a ticket in another state, that ticket will be reported to Florida and will be treated just as if you received the ticket in Florida.
