DMV Points

As you can see below, New York State has dozens of ways to place points on your license. Figuring out what violation equals what penalty and what that can mean to your license and your insurance rates can be a full time job. Also, calculating which points to add up to determine whether you have accumulated too many points is tricky.

The below chart will provide you with the basics. Should you find yourself on the receiving end of a traffic ticket, contact us for help to make fighting it as simple as possible.
