The Point System in Alabama

The driving record point system in Alabama serves to keep tract of violations and hold drivers responsible in the event that they are involved in multiple violations. Once you receive a traffic ticket the Alabama Department of Public Safety (DPS) will add the points to your driving record. Driving record points can lead to a revocation, cancellation or suspension of a driver’s license, community service and fines, Alabama DPS reinstatement fees and mandatory completion of a defensive driving course or completion of traffic school. Furthermore, when you have too many record points on your driver license, it can lead to higher car insurance rates.
