Please remember that after receiving 11 points or more in an 18-month period (as of the date of the violation), the Department of Motor Vehicles may suspend or revoke your license. In addition, some traffic violations are misdemeanors, which means you are accused of a crime and must appear in court. Such offenses include driving with a suspended license, driving with a suspended registration, or reckless driving. Further, while not a misdemeanor, significant penalties affecting your driving privileges can be imposed if you drive a motor vehicle in New York State without insurance. If you plead guilty to driving a motor vehicle without insurance and you are the registered owner, you face a mandatory one-year revocation of your New York driver’s license and the imposition of significant fines and surcharges.
