Misdemeanors Archives

Understanding points on your driver's license

When you receive a driver's license in Pennsylvania, you need to know that the state has the ability to suspend your license if you amass a certain number of points. Points are added to your driving record when you are cited for various traffic infractions. The number of points added to your license may vary based upon the nature of the infraction. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, most citations result in two or three points being added to your license but some offenses will add four or even five points at one time.
