Mr. Speeding Ticket's Guide to Connecticut DMV Points
Points. Even one word can strike fear into the hearts of every driver. Nobody wants them. Very few understand them. Most lawyers don’t even know where to get information about them. So we compiled a list of all the points you can get in Connecticut. If you want to know, “What are CT DMV points and how will they affect my driver’s license?” read on.
Points from the DMV might seem like a mystery, and it can be hard to get a straight answer about how they may be assessed and what the consequences of them are.
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in Connecticut uses a point system to keep track of the driving history of each Connecticut driver and even out-of-state drivers.
If a person is found guilty of a motor vehicle violation, they will have points assessed against their license.
All points will remain on your license for two years. If you have seven or more points against your license in a three year period, you will have to take a driver retraining course. If you accumulate 10 points against your license within two years, the DMV will suspend your license for 30 days.
If you are close to having 10 points assessed against your driver’s license, the DMV will contact you. This is a warning from the DMV that you cannot afford to get any more points against your license. But what if you never got the letter? Too bad – they don’t care!
Ideally, you want to avoid any points against your driver’s license. This is why it is oftentimes a good idea to fight a motor vehicle violation. You can review the points associated with different driving offenses below.
