Removing points from your driving record

Today’s blog topic comes courtesy of the Department of Motor Vehicles. Q: How does one remove points from their driving record? A: Having points on your driving record is not a good thing. They may be the result of traffic collisions and tickets. “Generally, collisions where you are at fault are one point and tickets are between one and two points,” according to the DMV. “The only way to remove points from a driving record is to wait. Most points stay on your record for three years. Depending on severity, points may stay on your record for up to 10 years.” To avoid getting points on your driving record, the DMV suggests you follow the rules of the road and avoid reckless behavior. Also, drive defensively, not distracted. For more information about points, visit
