Arizona MVD Points System
Arizona uses a point system to determine if a driver’s license can be suspended or revoked. Arizona drivers receive points for every traffic violation, and the MVD (Motor Vehicle Department) of Arizona keeps track of the points. It is important that you understand this system and the consequences you may face for having points against your driving record:
- 8 points – DUI conviction
- 8 points – Extreme DUI conviction
- 8 points – Reckless Driving conviction
- 8 points – Aggressive Driving violation
- 6 points – Hit and Run offense
- 6 points – Failure to yield or stop causing a death
- 4 points – Failure to yield or stop causing a serious injury
- 3 points – Speeding
- 2 points – other traffic crimes / moving violations
Point values are assigned to different traffic violations, but some traffic crimes have such a high value that your drivers license is immediately invalidated:
- Committing a felony using a vehicle
- Committing homicide with a vehicle
- Committing aggravated assault with a vehicle
- Operating a vehicle under the influence of a drug
- Lying under oath to the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department
- Failing to stop if you have involvement in an accident
- Having participation in a drive-by shooting
