Out-of-State Drivers convicted of Virginia Traffic Violations
Out-of-state drivers need to defend their Virginia traffic case because a conviction will be reported back to the home state. The home state and automobile insurance company may then take action against the driver. We represent clients from North Carolina, Florida, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York & other states. In many instances, we can make a motion to have our client’s appearance waived so that our client does not have to return to Virginia for the trial.

There are at least three areas where a motorist can be penalized for a traffic law conviction. First, the Virginia Courts can impose various penalties for a traffic violation conviction. Such penalties may include incarceration, loss of driving privileges, fines, and court costs. Second, the Department of Motor Vehicles can also impose penalties. These penalties may include loss of driving privileges, moving violation demerit points, and other fees. Finally, automobile insurance premiums and deductibles will likely increase.
