I have a clean record. REceived speeding ticket 54 in 45. SHould I request prayer for judgement? Or reduction to non moving violation? What do both of these terms mean and how do they affect points on insurance and license?

You should always seek a non-moving violation first. Some counties will give it to you and others won't. Sometimes an attorney will be able to get a non-moving violation when you wouldn't.

Otherwise, I would advise keeping it at 9 over and not requesting a prayer for judgment. You still won't have insurance points if it is your only infraction in the last three years. Plus you can save yuor prayer for judgment.
