Did you know that in New York State…. ?

  • If you accumulate 25 points, you could face a LIFETIME loss of your driver’s license. The new DMV rules allow them to add up points starting from the beginning of your driving career. It is more important than ever to minimize the number of points on your license.
  • Your driver’s license will be taken if you accumulate 11 points within 18 months.
  • 3 convictions for cell phone use (or using ANY electronic device while driving) in 18 months results in loss of license.
  • Your driver’s license will be taken if you get 3 speeding convictions within 18 months, regardless of the points.
  • Pleading guilty or being found guilty of a speeding violation in New York state will result in points on your license.
  • 6 points on your license in 18 months means the DMV will charge you $100 a year to drive for the next three years.
  • Fines and surcharges for speeding convictions can range between $100 and $1,000 depending on your record and the facts of the case.
  • Judges can impose jail sentences for speeding.
  • Judges have the option of suspending your license for even 1 speeding ticket.
  • Some insurance companies will raise your rates after just 1 speeding conviction.
