Question: How long does a written warning ticket (like for speeding) stay on your record?
Answer: A paper warning does not go on your driving record. As for citations for speed, according to the Driver and Vehicle Services, speeding tickets generally stay on record for five years, serious speeds are 10 years. Warnings are often tracked on officer’s computers, so they might know if you were stopped before or not for certain violations, but this does not count as being on your record.
