How many points do I get for speeding, DUI and other violations?

If you receive a traffic ticket, you may get points assigned that put you at risk of losing your license or that increase your insurance rates. Each state has a system that assigns point values to different kinds of traffic offenses and is used by the state’s motor vehicle department (DMV) to keep track of the driving records of all licensed drivers in the state. For example, in Florida, a stop sign violation has three points, while reckless driving carries four points. Driving under the influence (DUI) doesn’t carry points, but you will have your license suspended for a minimum of six months with other penalties possible. Speeding carries three or four points depending on how far over the speed limit you were traveling. Driving without a valid license does not have points, but No Valid Driver’s License (NVDL) is a criminal offense.

Can I get points removed from my license?

There are multiple ways to remove points from a driver’s license record to avoid suspensions or insurance increases.

Deciding to fight a traffic ticket

If a traffic ticket is likely to increase your insurance premiums and put points on your license, you may decide it’s worthwhile to fight the ticket. Whether you are accused of running a stop sign, speeding, reckless driving, texting while driving or DUI, we can explain the exact law you’ve been alleged to have violated and identify areas for potential challenges. Paying your ticket is usually not advisable unless it is a non-moving violation. A commercial driver with a CDL should never pay a ticket since it may cause the driver his or her job, even if it is a non-moving violation.
