Understanding Virginia’s Point System
Virginia uses a system of points to reward and penalize traffic violations. The state adds demerit points to your license following a traffic-related conviction. These points remain on your license for up to two years. Less severe offenses result in fewer points. For example:
- Three-point violations include impeding traffic, improper turning, driving without lights and driving without a license.
- Four-point violations include traffic infractions, failure to yield and failure to stop at the scene of the crash.
- And six-point violations include reckless driving, DWI, and DUI.
Every conviction adds more points to your license. The more points you accumulate, the more severe the penalties you face.
