How Many Points Are Added to Your Driving Record for Traffic Tickets in Missouri?
Most Missouri speeding tickets issued by a city or county police officer will cause 2 points to be added to your driving record. If your ticket was issued by a Missouri State Highway Patrol officer, 3 points will be added to your driving record for the traffic violation. A ticket for “No Insurance” will cause 4 points to be added to your driving record. “Driving While Suspended or Revoked” will cause 12 points to be added to your driving record, and your license will be revoked for 1 year.
See this link to the Missouri Department of Revenue website that shows how many points will be added to your driving record for Missouri traffic tickets involving speeding, DWI, careless and imprudent driving, stop sign violations, and many other common traffic offenses.
Too Many Points Will Cause Your License to be Revoked or Suspended
If you accumulate too many points on your driving record within a certain period of time, your license will be revoked or suspended, so it’s important to keep track of the number of points you have on your driving record. The speeding conviction will stay on your driving record for 3 years, but the points count toward a suspension for only 18 months, so it’s also important to keep track of how long a speeding ticket conviction has been on your driving record.
See this page on my website about how to keep points off your driving record.
