Drivers License Point Suspension

If you don’t live in a major metropolitan area transportation becomes very difficult if your drivers license has been revoked.  Simple tasks of getting to work, going to the grocery store or picking up you children become a burden.  The State of Colorado will suspend your drivers license if you accumulate to many points over time.  The amount of points allotted is determined by the age of the driver.

Each person starts with a clean slate, or 0 points against their license.  If the driver is convicted of traffic violations and accumulates points against his/her license as shown in the table above, his/her ability to drive in Colorado will be suspended, denied or revoked.

The points that are reported to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) will be eliminated after two years from the date of the violation unless you are a minor.  Traffic violations committed by a minor between the ages of 18 to 21 remain on the minor’s record for a period of three years.

Although points will be eliminated from your driving record the violation will remain.  Therefore, a hearing officer will be able to review your driving history if they are asked to consider a restricted license for excess points.
