Understanding the Maryland Driving Point System
Maryland is one of the 41 states that implements a demerit drivers license point system. Through this system, drivers accumulate points against their licenses when they are convicted of certain traffic violations and driving offenses. This system helps identify, deter, and penalize repeat traffic offenders.
Each traffic violation state is worth a certain number of points, with more serious violations carrying more points than lesser infractions. If a driver license reaches a certain number of points within a given time period, their license is at risk of suspension. Consequences for drivers license points are as follows:
3-4 points: You will receive a warning letter from the MVA. No action is typically required when receiving the warning.
5-7 points: The MVA will require you to enroll in a driver improvement course. This also serves as the final warning before suspension.
8-11 points: Depending on your specific offenses, the MVA may choose to suspend your driver’s license for a period of months or years.
12+ points: If you have accumulated twelve or more points in a two-year period, the MVA will send you a notice of revocation and revoke your driving privileges for a period of several years.
