I was lucky enough to obtain a speeding ticket and I also have a class three medical certificate. Do I need to report this to the FAA, and if I do how do I go about that.

DC-9, wow, that's some great honesty  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The short answer: naahhh, don't worry about it...happens to the best of us. Just don't forget to pay it and you should be fine!

No moving violations need to be reported unless you have been convicted for something like DWI, etc. Just don't get a speeding ticket from the FAA..Talk about some Big Bucks Big grin.

I'm not going to sugar coat this like everyone else has.

Do not take a speeding ticket lightly. In several states, 15mph and greater over the limit will get your license suspended. At 19mph and greater over the limit, most insurance carriers will cancel your policy under a reckless driving clause (even though it may not be indicated on the ticket). With your age being 16-20, you are considered a "high risk" for insurance carriers and they will cancel your policy at the drop of a hat.

If your moving violation landed you a fine of over $150--this is considered equal to a misdemeanor by federal agencies and some employers. Hopefully you did not speed in a construction zone where fines double (or triple).

If your aspirations are to become a professional pilot, then you must be fully aware that your background will be thoroughly checked out. The first (and least expensive) look into your background is an MVR (motor vehicle report). Your adherence to driving laws will give your employer an idea of your ability to follow FARs. With the market as it is, too many entries on an MVR will keep you out of the running.

True, speeding tickets will have no bearing on your ability to hold a 3d Class and private pilot certificate...however, your driving record is important for your professional career.

TT737FO,

Who's sugarcoating anything? He asked whether or not he had to report it, and I said no. He didn't ask for a lecture and I didn't give him one.

Sidenote: The DWI versus DUI depends on the state. some, like Oklahoma, use both, even if you are not drunk you can still get a DUI for .05 to .08, then DWI over .08.

Depending on the state, I'd suggest asking for deffered adjudication, that way nothing goes on your record, but the city still gets its money and leaves you alone.

Expanding on what Lt-AWACS said, municipalities main concern is the money, not putting points on your license for a ticket. Always plead not guilty and try to strike a deal with the cop first, then the judge, before the hearing. If you ask nicely and the magistrate is not too big of an asshole he will bow to your request. I speak from experience.

Also many jobs perform the full battery of background checks on you, for example, the Pennsylvania State Police check your credit, as do most other police departments and some other less involving jobs.

If you don't have an excess of violations people will still consider hiring you, unless it involves driving, most big rig companies and bus companies want you to maintain a clean driving record before and throughout employment.

Just as long as you aren't the woman with 17 DUI's you will be cool for the most part, just be careful, everything about you these days forms a paper trail behind you that you can trip over later on in life.

thank goodness for TCAS !

Thanks for everyone who replied. It cleared up much that needed to be cleared up.

TT737FO - thanks for that whole deal, I am know the laws of my fine state and was well below what you were talking about. As for the professional pilot remarks on my profile, I guess I should clear that up. I have not done much changing in my profile since I signed up in 1998 when I was 14, and my goals for the future have changed a lot.


Thanks again everyone.
