Warnings for Traffic Cases

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY DRIVER RESPONSIBILITY PROGRAM

A conviction of an offense under a traffic law of this state or a political subdivision of this state may result in the assessment on your driver’s license of a surcharge under the Driver Responsibility Program.

Your driver’s license will accumulate points as follows:

  • Conviction for a moving violation, except speeding less than 10% faster than the posted speed limit in a location other than a school zone – 2 points
  • Conviction for an offense relating to child passenger safety seat systems – 2 points
  • Conviction for a moving violation resulting in an accident – 3 points

If you accumulate 6 or more points during the preceding 36 month period, you will be required to pay to the Department of Public Safety, a surcharge of $100.00 for the first 6 points, and $25.00 for each additional point.
Each year, the Department of Public Safety will assess a surcharge of $250.00 if, during the preceding 36-month period you have been convicted of “driving while license invalid,” “failure to show proof of financial responsibility (no insurance),” or “operating a motor vehicle while the registration is suspended.”
Each year, the Department of Public Safety will assess a surcharge of $100.00 if, during the preceding 36-month period you have been convicted of “driving without a valid license.”
