Will my license be suspended?

September 7, 2018

In addition to automatic suspension if you accumulate more than 11 points in 18 months, there are several reasons why your license might be immediately suspended after a new violation, regardless of how many points you have on your record.

If you are found guilty of 3 speeding violations within 18 months, your driver’s license may be revoked for at least six months.

If you are found guilty of 3 misdemeanor traffic violations within 18 months, this may also result in your license being suspended or revoked for at least six months.

If you passed your road test less than six months ago, it only takes 2 moving violations to result in a suspended license.

If you are found guilty of texting or using your cell phone, your license may be automatically suspended for 120 days.

Other reasons your license may be summarily suspended, regardless of your points, include:

  • Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
  • Failure to pay outstanding traffic fines
  • Failure to file motor vehicle accident reports
  • Unpaid taxes
  • Failure to maintain auto liability insurance
  • Being involved in a motor vehicle collision resulting in a fatality
