Will A Ticket Put Points On My License?

If you’re convicted of one of the offenses identified in the table below with a “Yes” for Driver Responsibility Points, you’ll get two points on your license.

Three points are assessed for a conviction that resulted in a crash.

The points remain on your driver record for three years from the date of conviction.

If you collect six or more points on your driver record you are assessed a surcharge for every year you maintain six or more points.

You’ll pay $100 for the first six points on a driver record and $25 for each additional point after six.
