Traffic Tickets and Points

There are numerous types of traffic tickets an individual can get: speeding, following too close, failure to obey traffic control device, improper passing of a school bus, etc. If convicted of the violation, you’re more than likely facing points to your driver’s license.

Below is a chart from the Georgia Department of Driver’s Services indicating how many points come with each traffic ticket:

Offense Code
Commonly Asked Questions
  1. What are “points” on my license?

    • In Georgia, points can be added to your license for various violations and the point sentences range from 1-6 points.
  2. How many points before my license gets suspended?
Under 18 Years of Age

If you are under 18 years of age, your Georgia driver’s license will be suspended if you accumulate 4 points in a 12 month period. Your license will be suspended for at least 6 months (depending on the type of charge). No limited permit or early reinstatement is available. More than likely, a driver under 18 who has received 4 or more points, will likely have to complete a Defensive Driving class, pay significant reinstatement fees, and possibly have to retake the driving exam – all after the mandatory hard suspension period.

Over 18 Years of Age

If you are over 18 years old, 15 or more points in a 24 month period will more than likely suspend your driver’s license.

I recently got a traffic citation and was all stressed out on what to do. Luckily, I had a friend who used the services of Lisanne Edelman and the firm at Don Turner Legal Team. Once I called I felt so much more comfortable with my situation and could take a big sigh of relief. Terry Sharp
