DMV Point Count for Vehicle Offenses
Certain vehicle code offenses carry points with the DMV. Many infractions such as speeding or unsafe lane change can carry one point. There are some offenses, mostly misdemeanors and felonies, that are two point violations. California Vehicle Code section 12810 specifies which crimes result in a two point violation. The following crimes all require a two point violation:
- Hit and Run in violation of Vehicle Code section 20001 or 20002
- DUI or DUI with injury in violation of Vehicle Code section 23152 or 23153
- Vehicular Manslaughter in violation of Penal Code section 191.5(b) or 192(c)
- Evading Arrest in violation of Vehicle Code section 2800.2 or 2800.3
- Speeding in excess of a 100 mph in violation of Vehicle Code section 22348. This crime is one of the few infractions that result in a two point violation.
- Reckless driving in violation of Vehicle Code section 23103
- Speed Contest or Exhibition of Speed in violation of Vehicle Code section 23109(a) or 23109(c)
- Driving on a Suspended License in violation of Vehicle Code section 14601. A violation of Vehicle Code section 14601 can be a misdemeanor or infraction and the two point violation results from either type of conviction.
