Understanding the North Carolina DMV Point SystemFebruary 18, 2019
The North Carolina DMV Point System If you are issued…
In North Carolina, a traffic ticket can result in two types of punishment points: NC Department of Motor Vehicle points (“DMV Points”) and NC Department of Insurance Points (“Insurance Points”). Too many DMV Points can result in a person losing their driver’s license. Any Insurance Points will result in a person’s insurance rates increasing. An experienced attorney should review your driving record and try to prevent or minimize the number of DMV Points and/or Insurance Points.
In our experience, law enforcement, friends, and loved ones like to give advice on how best to handle a ticket. While their intentions may be good, every situation is unique and there are a lot of factors that need to be considered before a ticket can be properly handled. These factors include, but are not limited to, a person’s: driving history, current insurance policy (including whether other family members are on that policy), and individual circumstances.
