Ohio Traffic Point System

(last revised September 23, 2011)


The point system

Points are assessed for some, but not all violations.  Typically, points are assessed for moving violations.  The points stay on your license for two years after the date of conviction.  If you accumulate twelve or more points in a two year period, your license will be suspended.


Speed limit under 55 miles per hour and

  • 1 to 5 miles over the limit:  no points - this is a "no point speed"

  • 6 to 29 miles over the limit:  2 points

  • 30+ miles over the limit:  4 points

Speed limit over 55 miles per hour and

  • 1 to 10 over the limit:  no points - this is a "no point speed"

  • 11 to 29 miles per hour over the limit:  2 points

  • 30 and over miles per hour the limit:  4 points


Six point violations

  • Aggravated vehicular homicide

  • Vehicular homicide

  • Vehicular manslaughter

  • Vehicular assault

  • Aggravated vehicular assault

  • Drag racing

  • Driving under suspension for a 12 point or OVI suspension

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs of abuse

  • Fleeing

  • Hit and run

  • Using a motor vehcile in the commission of any felony

  • Operating without the owner's consent


Four point violations

  • Operation with a BAC over the limit

  • Reckless operation

  • Disregard for the safety of others

  • Operating under the influence of alcohol under age 21


Two point violations

  • Operating with a restriction (like no-helmet on a motorcycle)

  • Driving under suspension other than 12 point or OVI

  • Stop signs

  • Traffic lights

  • Most other violations


No point violation

  • Driving without a license (Ohio Revised Code 4510.12)
