Points Suspension

A Points Suspension is one of the many ways that your privilege to drive may be suspended. If you accumulate a specified amount of points within a certain timeframe, the DMV will issue a license suspension. Points are added to a record when someone is convicted of a moving violation. Paying a ticket counts as a guilty plea and a conviction. Before admitting guilt by paying the ticket, call Gans Law to discuss your options. If you’ve already received a points suspension or have one pending, we may be able to help in getting it removed. 

If you make an election to complete traffic school or you are ordered by the Court to attend traffic school, the link to the Florida Online Traffic School can be found here: https://www.floridaonlinetrafficschool.com 

Points Suspension Breakdown

Points are assigned based on the type of conviction and remain on the driver record from the date of conviction. If a driver accumulates too many points in a set time frame, their driving privileges will be suspended as listed below:

  • 12 points in 12 months = 30 day suspension.
  • 18 points in 18 months = 3 month suspension.
  • 24 points in 36 months = 1 year suspension.

I am very satisfied with Gans Law. I had a total of four traffic cases, two of which turned out to be criminal. I was new to Orlando and the first couple attorneys I had consulted with were way too expensive. Gans Law was very efficient and also very affordable. They genuinely listen to your case and help you out the best way possible. As a result of hiring them, they dismissed my traffic tickets, including the two criminal cases. The world needs more lawyers of their morals and expertise. I would refer them to anybody. Thank you Gans Law!
