POINT SUSPENSIONS

For more information see Florida Statute 322.27 Authority of department to suspend or revoke driver license


The Department of Motor Vehicles is authorized to suspend the license of any person who has accumulated 12 or more points

within one year. Points are calculated by the date you received the ticket.


  • 12 points in 12 months will result in a 30 day suspension
  • 18 points in18 months will result in a 90 day suspension
  • 24 points in 36 months will result in a 1 year suspension


In Florida, you can elect traffic school once per 12 month period, but only five times in your life. Election of traffic school will keep points off your driver record, but you still have to pay the cost of the infraction which will also still appear on your driver record.


We may be able to help you avoid traffic school, keep points off your driver record, and get the citation dismissed.
