What are points on a driving record in Pennsylvania? VIDEO

Points on a driving record in Pennsylvania are what the court would impose if a person was found guilty or pleaded guilty to certain traffic offenses in Pennsylvania. The traffic offense itself, if a person were to be found guilty or plead guilty would determine the number of points that's determined by statute in Pennsylvania. Points would be reported from the court to PennDOT. PennDOT is the Pennsylvania's department of motor vehicles and driver licensing services.

They would then report to insurance companies, the points that are on a person's driving record. Insurance companies would base in part their insurance quotes or premiums that a driver were to pay based on the number of points that a driver had. Obviously, if you have no points, you'll get the best premiums, all considerations aside. Having points can affect a driver in many ways. It can at a minimum, increase a person's insurance premiums or even their ability to obtain insurance through different insurance companies.

If you get enough points, your license could be suspended. Points are a very serious matter. Having an experienced Pennsylvania traffic attorney can help you best address any traffic issue or concern involving points.
