Traffic Points Reduction

  • Although the MVC keeps a permanent record of all the points you’ve earned, it is possible to earn point deductions by remaining violation and suspension-free for one year or by taking qualified driving courses approved by the MVC. 
  • Note: Your insurance company might not factor these deductions into your insurance rate. 
  • You can complete multiple remedial programs to remove points; however, you must follow the timeline for each deduction restriction.
