When will points cause my license to be suspended or revoked?

If you receive 11 points or more in eighteen (18) months (calculated from date of violation), the DMV will suspend your driver license.

The DMV must revoke your driver license if you are convicted of three speeding violations within an 18-month period no matter how many points you have.

When will a Revocation cause me to lose my License for life because I am repeat DWI offender (even if you did not get revoked for another DWI)?

Lifetime Lookback

What Do Tickets Actually Cost

Your insurance rates may increase. For Instance, If you are convicted for a speeding violation, your insurer may tack a temporary charge on your insurance policy for three years. Your rate could increase as much as 25% depending on the circumstances.

New York also added a new surcharge of $100 per year for three years if you get six points, plus $25 per year for each additional point.

Fees for Representation

Most VTL violations can be handled for a fee of $200.00 - $350.00, excluding fines, without the client's appearance in court.
