With each moving violation, Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division, MVD, assesses points against your driver’s license. If you accumulate enough points, your license to drive in Arizona will be suspended. Excessive speed is a criminal charge in San Tan Justice Court, and if convicted, carries 3 MVD points that attach to your driving record. Once an individual accumulates 8 points in any 12-month period, they can face a 3-month license suspension. More points accrued will require a longer suspension. 13 to 17 points within a one-year period requires an addition 3-month suspension. 18 to 23, an additional 6 months and 24 point, an additional 12-month suspension.
You can request a copy of your driving record through the Arizona’s Department of Public Safety website, Service Arizona. To determine the number of points that you have on your license, fill out the MVD’s Driver License Motor Vehicle Record form.
