Washington 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 Washington. 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 Washington
- Reckless driving
- Eluding a police officer
- Driving without insurance
- Hit and run
- Vehicular assault
- Vehicular homicide/manslaughter
Fortunately, moving violations won’t affect you forever. Violations will stay on your Washington driving record for five years and will only affect your insurance rates for an average of three to five years. 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.
