How Many Points Can I Receive Until I Am Suspended?

There are many factors that can result in a driver losing their right to drive in New York.  Perhaps the most common reason is a driver accumulating too many points.  Once a driver is convicted of 11 points within an 18-month period, the DMV has the right to suspend the motorist privilege to drive.

This chart will help first time speeders quickly ascertain how many points they are facing.

01 to 10 mph over the limit

21 to 30  mph over the limit
31 to 40  mph over the limit
