Learn About the System of Demerit Points in Traffic Law

In Virginia, traffic convictions mean more than fines and court costs. They can also cost you your license or increase your insurance premiums through the demerit system. For instance, you will be assessed with the following demerits upon conviction:
  • 1 to 9 miles over the speed limit - 3 demerit points
  • 10 to 19 miles over the speed limit - 4 demerit points
  • 20 miles over the speed limit - 6 demerit points
  • Reckless driving - 6 demerit points
And that's not all! Your conviction report may be sent to your home state and may be added to your driving record.

Common Traffic Charges

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving by speed
  • General reckless driving
  • Accidents and following too closely
  • Failure to obey a highway sign, to obey a traffic signal, or to yield to an emergency vehicle
  • Child restraint violations
  • Driving on a suspended or revoked license
  • Driving after being declared a habitual offender
