Many New Mexico drivers have received ‘guilty deferred’ sentences for traffic violations. A “deferred” sentence is one for which drivers must satisfy conditions as established by a Court – such as attending driving school, community service, a 90-day probation period during which the driver must maintain a clean record, etc. Upon compliance with court conditions, the citation is dismissed.

If you have not complied with the court sentence, your license will be suspended.
