Pennsylvania uses the point system for traffic violation convictions. Points accumulate with each offense, and the number of points against you is based upon the severity of the offense.
Once you have accumulated six points, you will receive written notice from PennDOT that you must take a test covering safe driving practices, departmental sanctions, and related safety issues. The agency gives you 30 days in which to pass this exam, or you will face license suspension. Once you pass the test, you eliminate two points from your driving record.
For the second accumulation of six points, you will face a 15-day license suspension and will be required to attend a hearing. Your driving record will be reviewed, and you may have your license suspended or be forced to take a new on-road driver examination. If you fail to attend the hearing, your license will be suspended.
If you have accumulated 11 points or more, your license will be suspended. The period of suspension will vary, based upon whether you have had a suspension in the past. In some cases, repeat suspensions can lead up to a year of license suspension.
You may have been wrongfully convicted of a serious traffic offense and are now living with the consequences, facing down the prospect of expensive fines, a license suspension, and in some cases, jail time. But it's not over yet; you still have the right to appeal.
Rather than accepting a guilty verdict in a moving violation, call us to help you through the process – and we can help you to appeal a conviction. If you want to retain your legal right to drive, you may need to appeal, and you need a lawyer who can work within the system and get results. Let us help.
