How Long Will A Point Stay On My Driving Record???

This is probably the question that we hear the most while writing new Auto Insurance policies.

According to the California DMV, the length of time a point stays on your driving record depends on the severity of the offense. Most points (illegal turn, not making a complete stop, driving over the speed limit, etc.) and/or accidents will stay on your driver record for 36 months (3 years). 

Points for more serious offenses, such as hit-and-run or a DUI, will stay on your record for 10 years.

Ideally you would like to have “clean” driving records. That means no points on your driving record. 

Having lots of points on your driving record not only affects your driving privilege, but how much you will pay for car insurance.
