The MVC regulates drivers by adding points to their record when they are convicted of moving violations. The more serious the ticket, or moving violation, then the more points the driver will receive


A driver is entitled to receive 12 points on his driving record. Once a driver receives 12 or more points on his driving record, then the Motor Vehicle Commission will issue a notice of scheduled suspension to the driver. This notice will advise the driver that his license will be suspended because he has accumulated 12 or more points on their license.


A driver can have up to three points subtracted from their driver’s record if they are good drivers. A driver can have up to three points removed from their driver’s record, if they have no ticket for 12 consecutive months. A driver can never have their point total reduced below zero.

A driver can also have two points removed from his record if he completes a MVC Driver Improvement Program. These programs are only offered to problem drivers.
