Utah Point System
PROVISIONAL POINT SYSTEM
A driver, under 21 years of age who accumulates 70 or more points in three years, may be suspended or denied for 1 month to a year, depending upon severity of the record.
ADULT POINT SYSTEM
A driver 21 years of age or older who accumulates 200 or more points in three years, may be suspended for 3 months to a year, depending upon severity of the record.
How the Point System Works
Upon forfeiture of bail or conviction of a moving violation, points are assessed to the driving record according to the following schedule. However, points may vary plus or minus 10% depending upon severity of the record. Certain serious violations, such as drunk driving, require mandatory suspension or revocation and are not included in the point system:
|1-10 M.P.H Over||35|
|11-20 M.P.H Over||55|
|21 M.P.H Over||75|
|Failure to Yield Right-of-Way||60|
|Following Too Close||60|
|Wrong Way on a One-Way Street||60|
|Texting While Driving||50|
|Other Moving Violations||40|
By safe driving, you can clear your own record. As an incentive to safety, the point system provides that when you drive one full year without a moving traffic violation conviction, one-half the points acquired will be removed from your record. If you drive two successive years without a conviction, all points will be deleted. Points for individual convictions are automatically removed from your record three years after the date of the violation. As a further incentive, 50 points may be deleted from your record for completion of a driver improvement course recommended by a division hearing officer.
