Negligent Operator Suspension
California can suspend your drivers license under what is
known as a "Negligent Operator Driver License Suspension
or Revocation". Yes, that is correct once you are licensed to
drive in California, If you start accumulating too many
tickets for moving violations, which count as 1 or 2 points,
according to the Department of Motor Vehicles you may be
considered a negligent operator and lose your driver license.
The California DMV has strict rules pertaining to racking up
Most driving offenses, such as hit and run, reckless driving,
and driving under the influence, are designated as 2 points
and will remain on your record for 7 years from the
violation date. Most other offenses are designated as 1 point
and will remain on your record for 3 years from the
violation date. Any "at fault" accident is normally counted
as 1 point.
You will be considered a negligent operator if your driving
record shows any of the following point count totals:
4 points in 12 months, or
6 points in 24 months, or
8 points in 36 months
The total number of points can include tickets or accidents
