The DMV point system
North Carolina has a special DMV points system that was designed to make people think twice about speeding in NC. The idea is that your license has a “point” record attached to it, which is also attached to your insurance premium. For example: If you have committed enough traffic violations that you’ve accumulated 12 points, then your license will be revoked. If you manage to restore your license, the next time you have points added, a speeding ticket, the limit will be set at eight points.
Your insurance rates are tied to the point system. In other words as long as you are repeatedly caught for speeding violations, you will end up with a revoked license and raised insurance rates. The points system also keeps track of your activities, which become part of your insurance company’s calculations for your next year’s insurance rates.
