Losing your License: Violation Points
Another way to lose your privilege to drive is to incur too many “violation points” on your license within a certain amount of time. Many common traffic infractions have a point value assigned to them, and a running tally is kept whenever you are ticketed.

Points remain against your driver’s license for three years and can cost you thousands of dollars in higher insurance premiums.

Three-point infractions include:

  • Minors driving during restricted hours
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit by 15 mph or less
  • Curfew violations
  • Driving with an open container
  • Violating child restraint regulations

Four-point infractions include:

  • Driving recklessly
  • Moving violations that cause an accident
  • Attempting to pass a school bus that has stopped
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit by 16 mph or more
  • Ignoring traffic control signals or devices

Six point infractions include:

  • Leaving the scene of an accident with damage of at least $50
  • Speed violations resulting in an accident

Point Maximums

Your license may be suspended if you incur the following points:

  • 12 points within a 12-month period― 30-day suspension
  • 18 points within an 18-month period― three-month suspension
  • 24 points within a 36-month period― one-year suspension

Points are given on the date the offense occurs. Driving out of state doesn’t help, either; you’ll accrue the same amount of points on your Florida license for convictions in any state or federal court.
