- HOW POINTS AFFECT YOU
1. If you get six or more points within three years on your current driving record, you will be assessed a surcharge.
2. If you get 12 or more points on your current driving record, your license will be suspended. You will receive a notice of scheduled suspension by mail.
3. Getting points on your license may also increase your insurance rates. Contact your insurance carrier for details.
2 points will be removed from the accumulated points you currently have on your license. Although the MVC keeps a permanent record of all the points you've earned, it is possible to earn point deductions by remaining violation and suspension-free for one year or by taking qualified driving courses approved by the MVC.
This course will help you avoid a suspended license, and you could even get an insurance discount! Just check with your insurance company to find out if they offer a rate reduction, and if you qualify.
You may only receive a two point reduction once every 5 years and only if there are points on your driving record at the time you complete the course.
