Speeding & Other Traffic Law


Driving is a privilege, not a right. You can lose your driving privilege if you disobey the traffic laws. When you are convicted of a traffic violation, while your vehicle was in motion, the department receives notice and adds points to your driving record. This isn’t like a football or basketball game — you don’t want these points. You can lose your driving privilege when you accumulate too many points.

The number of points you receive depends on the conviction. For example, you may receive 2 or 3 points if you are convicted of speeding (depending on if the court was municipal, county, or state level). By contrast, you may receive 12 points and the revocation of your driving privilege if you are convicted of leaving the scene of an accident.

If you accumulate a total of 4 points in 12 months, the department will send you a point accumulation advisory.

If you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, your driving privilege will be suspended. Below are the consequences for accumulating 8 points in 18 months:

• 1st suspension — 30 days

• 2nd suspension — 60 days

• 3rd (or subsequent) suspension — 90 days

Your driving privilege will be revoked for one year if you accumulate:

• 12 or more points in 12 months

• 18 or more points in 24 months

• 24 or more points in 36 months
