Driving Record Points Related
Point Suspensions are based upon the accumulation of points associated with each conviction of moving traffic violations that the driver has committed. When a driver accumulates ten (10) or more points on their driving record, the driver’s license will be suspended for a specific period of time.
To reinstate this type of Order of Suspension, the driver must:
- Serve the duration of the suspension as specified in the Order of Suspension (either 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months);
- Pay the statutory fee of $50.00*; and
- If the Order of Suspension is for a 6 or 12 month period of time, the driver’s traffic record will classify the driver as a hazard to public safety (“Chronic Violator”). When the period of suspension has expired and the driver has not violated any traffic laws for the preceding six (6) months, the driver will need to appear for an interview before a DPS Driver Compliance Hearing Officer to apply for reinstatement.
