Do you have to report warning tickets for speeding?

Heh? Do you have to report any non-criminal traffic violations?

I think so-if asks for moving violations. I didn't get a ticket, but the cop gave me a warning for speeding (a written warning). Disclose?

You might want to check with the school. A lot of the apps say not to even include actual traffic tickets I think (nevermind warnings), but some apps prob do require at least tickets be disclosed (although a lot of times with initial traffic tickets you can meet with a hearing officer and pay a fee or do a diversion-type class such that it won't go on your record and doesn't generally need to be reported as a 'ticket' or 'violation.' However, if the school specifies in the app that it all incidents regardless of being recorded [or similar wording perhaps] need to be disclosed then perhaps even that should be). Kind of doubt warnings need to be, but some schools (especially TTTs I think) can be brutal on the disclosure requirements. Better safe than sorry, though I also don't believe in needless disclosures.

A warning is not an actual ticket IMO. I didn't tell anyone about the... I don't know, like 5 warnings?... I have received. And I ain't losing any sleep over it.
