You can check how many points are on your license in California by going to the Department of Motor Vehicles website. Checking your license points in California will cost you $2 plus a 2.1% fee for credit and debit cards, since you will need to pay for a copy of your driving record.
California uses driver’s license points to track violations. Accumulating 4 points in 12 months, 6 points in 24 months, or 8 points in 36 months will result in a suspended license. Insurance companies also check customers’ driving records for points, since having a poor driving record is associated with an increased risk of filing a claim. Consequently, license points will result in higher premiums. For instance, one DUI conviction will raise your premium by an average of 144% in California.
