I am worried about the point to be assess against my driving record. How do I know if I am in point trouble?

If you are found guilty of a traffic violation, your driving record may be charged with demerit points.  The court will not determine the number  of points assessed against your record.  The court will merely report the conviction to the Division of Motor Vehicles and the Division will assess the number of points against your record, depending upon the charge.  The following point schedule lists common traffic violations.  Other violations, not listed, may also carry points.  If you accumulate 12 points against the driving record within a one-year period by date of violations, your license will be suspended or revoked.
