Similar to other states, Florida assesses a point value on traffic infraction convictions and violations that will count against you on your Florida Drivers License. Points are assessed to your driving record by paying the ticket without completing a Driver Improvement Course or electing a hearing, or by failing to pay your ticket at all. Once you have accumulated a certain number of points, you will receive a Points suspension on your License. The Tampa FL traffic lawyers at The Law Office of Jeffrey M. Rich are here to help you with your Florida License Points suspension. Depending on how many points you accumulate over a period of time, will determine how long your suspension will be.
Point suspensions are assessed as follows:
- 12 points assessed within 12 months imposes a 30 day suspension
- 18 points assessed within 18 months imposes a 90 day suspension
- 24 points assessed within 36 months imposes a 1 year suspension
