NYS Driver Point System

New York City Police Car

As you know, this is determined that drivers who commit a series of violations in a short time period. But you may not know how much point will be applied for each violation.

Here is a list with the point values assigned to various traffic violations.

If you get 11 or more points within 18 months, your driver license may be suspended.

Violation Point Charg

Once 18 months have passed from the violation date, the points for that violation no longer count toward your total. However, the points remain on your driving record as long as the conviction remains on your record and may be used by your insurance company to increase premiums.

And there is another unhappy news ...

If you receive 6 or more points on your New York State driving record in 18 months, you must pay a Driver Responsibility Assessment fee.

The amount depends on the type of violation or the total number of points on your driving record. Check DMV website.
