How Do I Check the Points on My License?

According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, an individuals’ driving record is public information and anyone can ask for a copy, and this is true for all states. The Department of Motor Vehicles keeps a record of all traffic incidents and convictions for every driver.

The best way to avoid getting points on a driver’s license is to obey all traffic laws and by driving defensively to avoid accidents. Distractions that can cause a person to lose concentration on the road include changing the radio, using a cell phone, eating, talking to passengers, speeding, weaving in and out of traffic and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
