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
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.
