How do I check if my car has a speeding ticket?

I got pulled over the other night going a couple miles over the speed limit, and I'm honestly not sure if I actually got a ticket or not. How do I check?

Answer
Being pulled over is scary, and I hope you’re all right! Luckily, if you need to, there are a few ways to check whether or not you got a ticket.
If the officer gave you a slip of paper when they pulled you over, the easiest way to know is to simply ask the officer whether it is a warning or a ticket. You can also look at it later if you forget to ask in the moment, though.
If you’re still unsure, you can contact the DMV. You can go in person or give them a call, but either way you’ll need to provide your driver license number. You can also request your driving record to check for any ticket history.
Another way to get a driver history abstract is by going to your state’s Motor Vehicle Commission website. The fee here will be around $15.00, and you’ll have to enter your Social Security number.
Sometimes, speeding tickets can cause an increase in your insurance bill. Luckily, the Jerry app can help you save money each month.
