Many states have a point system to penalize bad drivers. Depending on the severity of their infraction, each violation racks up points on their driving record. After accumulating so many points, these drivers risk high insurance premiums and even the suspension or loss of their driving privileges. However, in Mississippi, no such point system exists.
This does not mean that traffic violators get off scot-free. Each ticket issued to a driver goes on his/her driving record, accessible to potential employers and to the insurance company. If you fail to pay traffic tickets within the required time period, your license will be suspended. And reinstatement of the license is costly.
Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DPS. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
