The government of Connecticut does not disclose how long points stay on your license, though most violations stop affecting you after 3 years.. After they expire, license points will no longer affect your driving privileges, so it’s worth keeping track of how much longer your points will last.
Accumulating 10 points in 24 months will result in a license suspension in Connecticut. Drivers might also be classified as high-risk to insure or be required to file an SR-22.
How Driver’s License Points Affect You in Connecticut
License points are designed to penalize drivers for unsafe behavior, and different moving violations will result in a different number of points in each state. For example, in Connecticut, a speeding ticket will result in one point, while being convicted of a negligent homicide will result in five points.
Driver’s license points are also important because insurance companies check driving records to determine how much risk a driver presents. Customers with more violations on their record will be charged a higher premium since they are considered more likely to file a claim. However, insurance companies typically have a look-back period of 3-5 years, meaning your insurance rates should only be affected temporarily.
