This state enlists a point system to monitor and penalize driving infractions. If a driver is convicted of traffic law violations, the driver will gain points on their drivers license. If those points reach a state specified amount, their license will be suspended for a predetermined period based on the amount of points gained. After two years time, without any further incidents, a traffic conviction loses its‘ point value for suspension purposes. However, it will stay on your permanent driving record and may effect your insurance rates. In the state of Delaware, point totals are calculated at half-value after the first year from the date of violation assessment.
If convicted of driving 50 mph over the the speed limit, or 100mph on the highway a 1 year suspension will be issued.
The following point gains within a 2 year period result in these suspension durations:
12 points – attend traffic school within 90 days of notice or 2 month suspension.
14 points – 4 months suspension
16 points – 6 months suspension
18 points – 8 months suspension
20 points – 10 months suspension
