If you accumulate too many points from convictions on tickets 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 point accumulations that result in suspension:
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.
