Will I lose my license due to points?

If you are found Guilty of a traffic violation you may have demerit points added to your driving record. The Court will report the conviction to the Department of Transportation. They will assess the number of demerit points against your record depending on the charge. If you accumulate 12 points in one year by date of violations, your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked.

If you have a probationary license, demerit points will double on the second and subsequent convictions. To find out how many points you have accumulated, you must contact the Drivers License Bureau by calling 608-266-2353.
