The Drivers License Points System was enacted in 2003 as part of the Driver Responsibility Law (part of HB 3588). This system assigns points to individual’s driving records for all moving violations classified as Class C misdemeanors.

2 pts. for a moving violation conviction in Texas or another state
3 pts. for a conviction for a moving violation that resulted in a vehicle crash, in Texas or another state
0 pts. are assigned for seat belt violation convictions or for speeding less than 10% over the posted limit.
Points remain on your record for three years.

DPS will fine drivers who accumulate a total of six points or more on their records within a six-year period. Drivers pay $100 for the first six points and $25 for each additional points until enough time has gone by for those points to be removed from their records.
