What is the Drivers License Point System in South Carolina?
South Carolina uses a points system to track license penalties for drivers. The baseline is zero points. At 12 points on your record your license will be suspended. One year after the points are accumulated half of them will be dropped from your record. Two years after the offense the other half will be dropped. Having points on your driving record can be detrimental to your auto insurance premiums in addition to leading to license suspension.
Tickets also come with potentially hefty fines for the driver. The fine issued with the ticket will be dependent on the number of points for the offense. Speeding ticket fines are broken down as follows:
- 6 points may receive a maximum fine of $440
- 4 points may receive a maximum fine of $180
- 2 points may receive a maximum fine of $75
Note that points penalties will vary from state to state, meaning that what is considered a 4 point penalty in South Carolina may be a 6 point penalty in North Carolina.
