Mississippi does not use driver’s license points, but drivers may still have their license suspended for things like a DUI or reckless driving. Moving violations will still be reported on your driving record in Mississippi. Depending on the offense, you could face fines, license suspension, or even jail time. Additionally, your insurer will see your driving record and may increase your premiums due to the violations.
Violations That Can Lead to a Suspended License in Mississippi
- Reckless or negligent driving
- Being the driver in an accident, causing death, injury, or serious property damage
- Driving under the influence
- Being incompetent to drive a motor vehicle
- Refusing to take a sobriety test
- Driving without insurance
- Stealing a vehicle or any parts of a vehicle
Fortunately, moving violations won’t affect you forever. Violations will only affect your insurance rates for 5 years in Mississippi. However, it is still important to know what is on your record so you can better understand how your driving history may be impacting your insurance premiums.
