Can a Speeding Ticket Get My License Suspended?

Speeding is one of the more common traffic violations you can be charged with, but the penalties can be pretty serious. Speeding tickets can result in a license suspension, but there are some factors that can affect this outcome.

If you’re worried that a speeding ticket might affect your license, you would do well to speak with a speeding ticket lawyer at the Law Office of James Medows. We can answer any questions you have and help you with your case.


Points for Speeding

Drivers license points determine when you lose your license for traffic violations. In New York, reaching eleven points will get your license suspended, but it usually takes multiple speeding tickets to reach that level.

How fast you were going determines how many drivers license points you receive:

  • A citation for inappropriate speed generally refers to going too fast for the conditions of the road or weather and carries two license points.
  • One to ten miles per hour (mph) over the speed limit carries three points.
  • Eleven to to twenty mph over carries four points.
  • Twenty-one to thirty mph over carries six points.
  • Thirty-one to forty mph over carries eight points.
  • Forty-one or more mph over carries eleven points.

The only speeding violation that will instantly get your license suspended is if you are going forty-one miles per hour over the limit. However, if you get more than one speeding ticket within eighteen months, the total may put you over eleven license points, also costing you your license.


The Struggle to Regain Your License

Fines and surcharges are all annoying and can cause you financial distress, but the real problem is always the loss of your personal mobility.

Getting your license back can be a difficult journey as well, taking up much of your time and costing you even more in fees. You will have to pay for, attend, and pass a special driving class to get it back.
