Points on License Suspension
If you accumulate too many points from driving violations in Colorado within a certain period of time, you will lose your driver’s license through a point suspension.
You will be notified of a hearing date which will determine the length of the restraint. A suspension can be ordered for up to one year and a probationary license may or may not be authorized at the hearing.
The following are license point accumulations that result in suspension of your Colorado drivers license:
Adult Driver (21 and older)
- 12 points in any 12 consecutive months
- 18 points in any 24 consecutive months
Minor Driver (18 thru 20 years of age)
- 9 points in any 12 consecutive months
- 12 points in any 24 consecutive months
- 14 or more points between the ages of 18-21
Under the Age of 18
- 6 points in 12 consecutive months
- 7 points prior to turning 18
Colorado does not have what is commonly referred to as a chauffeur license, however, if a driver proves at a hearing that they are employed as a driver and received all of their tickets in the course of their employment, they are not subject to suspension until they receive 16 points in 12 months, 24 points in 24 months or 28 points in 4 years.
LICENSE REINSTATEMENT REQUIREMENTS:
- Application for Reinstatement ( DR2870) form
- $95.00 reinstatement fee (check/money order payable to the Department of Revenue).
- Evidence of Insurance showing that you are insured.
After your driver’s license is reinstated no testing will be required to get a duplicate license if your license is still valid. When you renew your license you will need to take the written test.
