Texas uses a point system for driver’s licenses. You receive a certain number of points against your license every time you commit a traffic violation. When you reach a certain number of points, your license may be suspended and you may be subjected to additional penalties.
Here is a brief breakdown of the Texas license point system:
- 2 points for every moving violation
- 3 points for every moving violation that results in an accident
Once you have 6 or more points against your license, you may be subject to suspension, fines and/or incarceration as outlined above.
If your driver’s license is suspended, your Fort Bend County traffic attorney may be to appeal the suspension on your behalf. You may also be eligible to apply for a restricted license, which would allow you to drive to work and other selected locations during the suspension period.
