If you have a less-than-stellar driving record, there are a couple of remedies to consider. They might not improve your lifeline, but they could keep your premiums low:
- If you've racked up points on your license, some states may remove them if you enroll in driver-improvement programs.
- In some states, you can also shave off points by adopting safe driving habits and remaining infraction-free over a set period of time.
- Remember, though: even if you manage to work off your points, infractions will likely be visible on your record for the forseeable future. If that's the case, you may have to go to court to have certain items expunged.
