The Point System in Washington

Washington does not use the point system; however, if you commit any traffic violation it will be recorded on your driving record by the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). Too many traffic violations may result in your driver’s license cancellations, revocations or suspensions, fines, reinstatement fees, driving restrictions and higher car insurance rates. Alcohol-related convictions remain on your driving record for life.
