How many points are my tickets worth?

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in My Kind of Driving

Indiana law gives courts the authority to order the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to suspend a motorist’s driver license when he or she is found to have committed certain traffic violations. Indiana law assesses a point value for each conviction of a moving violation it relates to the seriousness of the offense in posing a risk to traffic safety. Point values for offenses range from two to eight points, depending on the violation. Points stay active on an individual’s driving record for two years from the conviction date of the citation.Motorists who accumulate 18 or more active points during a two-year period will be notified and required to attend an administrative hearing conducted by the BMV. At the hearing, the presiding officer will make a determination whether to place the driver on probation; suspend the person’s driving privileges for 30 days to one year; or impose additional requirements beyond the order of probation or suspension such as requiring attendance at a BMV-State Approved Driver Safety Program. The driver program is used for point reduction and teach drivers mature driving techniques.
