“POINTS” on your Ohio License

One of the most frequently asked questions to my staff involve the issue of POINTS on an Ohio driver’s license.  “Points” under Ohio law are set forth at O.R.C. 4510.036(C).  The statute lists the following as 6-point violations:

6 Point Violations
-Aggravated Vehicular Homicide
-Vehicular Homicide
-Vehicular Manslaughter
-Aggravated Vehicular Assault
-Willful Fleeing and Eluding,
-Failure to Stop and Disclose Identity at Accident
-Street Racing
-Driving Under Suspension
-OVI (drunk driving)
-Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle
-Any felony motor vehicle violation or any felony committed with motor vehicle

Four Point Violations
-Operation of a Vehicle After Underage Consumption
-Operation in Willful or Wanton Disregard of Safety (a reckless operation offense)
-Exceeding the Speed Limit by greater than 30 mph.

Two Point Violations
-Exceeding the Speed Limit of 55 by at least 10 but less than 30 mph
-Exceeding the Speed Limit less than 55 by at least 5 but less than 30 mph.
-Operating a motor vehicle in violation of a restriction imposed by the BMV
-Most other moving violations including operating a vehicle w/o a license.

NOTE: If you are nearing the requisite 12 points that will result in a separate license suspension you can attend a TWO POINT CREDIT COURSE as set forth at R.C. 4510.037(C).  For a more detailed explanation of the credit course or to consult with an attorney about your charge, contact Charles M. Rowland II or Mark Babb at 937-879-9542.
