Maintaining Your Driving Record

Driving offenses can vary from speeding and running a red light, to vehicular manslaughter and vehicular homicide. Each of these crimes is assigned a number of points. The DMV makes note of these points and adds them to your driving record. Points that you receive remain on your record for two years. Some drivers may be eligible to take a Basic Driver Improvement Course and eliminate points from their record before the two-year mark.

If you have more than four points on your driving record, you will receive a letter from the Secretary of State asking you to amend your driving habits. After eight points, you can expect a warning letter. Accruing more than 12 points will result in a mandatory trip to the Driver’s Reexamination Office. At your appointment, agents will take a closer look at your traffic violations and may decide to restrict, suspend, or revoke your license.

A Little More About License Restrictions

If your license is restricted, this means that you will be given a special license which only allows you to drive to necessary locations. For example, if you are in school or if you are working, you may be able to drive to and from these commitments.

A suspended license is locked for a period of time as determined by a judge or the Driver’s Reexamination office. After your time limit has expired, you can pay a reinstatement fee to get your license back.

In very serious cases, your license may be revoked. This means you will not be allowed to drive at all. Normally, offenders can request a hearing to plea for a new license one to five years later.

Other Traffic Violation Penalties

In addition to losing your license, some traffic violations may result in:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Required ignition interlock devices
  • A permanent criminal record
  • Parole
  • Probation
