How does Missouri’s point system work?
The Missouri point system is slightly confusing because it relies on both time and amount of points to calculate penalties. Here are the rules:
If you accumulate a total of 4 points in 12 months, the Department of Revenue will send you a point accumulation advisory letter.
If you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, the Department of Revenue will suspend your driving privilege.
•1st suspension – 30 days
•2nd suspension – 60 days
•3rd or more suspensions – 90 days
The Department of Revenue will revoke your driving privilege for one year if you accumulate:
•12 or more points in 12 months
•18 or more points in 24 months
•24 or more points in 36 months
When your driving privilege is reinstated following a Point Suspension or Revocation, the Department of Revenue reduces your total points to 4.
Every year you drive without getting new points on your record, the points will be reduced.
•1 year — total remaining points reduced by one-third
•2 years — remaining points reduced by one-half
•3 years — points reduced to zero
Although your points may be reduced to zero, certain types of convictions must remain listed permanently on your Missouri driver record.
