Traffic tickets can cause huge headaches and they often cost people significant time and money. In fact, the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles reports that drivers who are convicted of a traffic offense and who receive a point on their license will generally have to pay 25 percent more for driving insurance than those with a point-free record. With two points, insurance premiums increase by approximately 45 percent. Should a driver be penalized with 12 points within a 3-year period, his/her license will be suspended for up to 60 days.
Following reinstatement, a driver’s license may be suspended after accumulating 8 points on a driving record. A second suspension may result in a 6-month suspension while a third suspension could last up to one year.
