A Look at the Driver Point System
Posted By The Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass || 1-Jun-2015
Most states use a point system, which allows them to track drivers who are convicted of violating traffic laws. Accumulated points can lead to severe consequences, such as higher insurance rates. As your criminal defense lawyer can advise you, conviction of DWI charges can also result in points on your license. In Texas, drivers with six or more points on their record must pay a surcharge and additional fees every year that their record holds six or more points. Points remain on a person’s record for three years after the conviction.
As you’ll learn by watching this video, having excessive points on your driving record can also lead to other consequences, such as the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. This video discusses the importance of obtaining a copy of your driving record to check it for errors.
