Texas does not use driver’s license points, as of September 2019. Drivers in Texas will still receive fines and fees for moving violations, however, and they can still have their license suspended for things like DUIs or driving without insurance.
Moving violations will still be reported on your driving record in Texas, too. Your insurer may also increase your premiums due to the violations.
Violations That Can Lead to a Suspended License in Texas
- 4 moving-violation convictions in a 12-month period
- 7 moving-violation convictions in a 24-month period
- Driving with a suspended, canceled, or revoked license
- Refusing or failing a blood alcohol test
- Street racing
- Failure to stop and render aid
- Driving with fake license plates, registration stickers, or safety inspection stickers
- Theft of motor vehicle fuel
- Drug offenses, even if not committed while driving
- DUI resulting in vehicular assault or manslaughter
- Evading arrest
- Furnishing a minor with alcohol
- Driving without required liability insurance
Violations will affect your insurance rates for at least three years in Texas. To learn more, check out WalletHub’s guides to points on driver’s licenses and checking your driving record.
