How Are Points On Your Driver’s License Calculated In New York?

If you are convicted of a moving violation, the New York State DMV will assess points to your driver’s license. The calculation of your point total only includes points received in the past 18 months.

PLEASE NOTE: The DMV calculates your points based upon the date of the violation and not the date of your conviction.

Your convictions will remain on your driver’s abstract after the 18 month time period.

When Are Points Removed From Your Driver’s License?

Points are removed three years after the calendar year in which you were charged.
