    Suspension time is determined by the number of points gained during a specific period. The following list is used to determine the length of your suspension time:

    • 12-14 points in a 2-year period: 60 days
    • 15-17 points in a 2 year period: 90 days
    • 18-20 points in a 2 year period: 120 days
    • 21-23 points in a 2 year period: 180 days
    • 24 points and more in a 2 year period: 365 days

    The Department of Public Safety will notify you in writing should a suspension take place.
