Oklahoma Drivers License Points Explained

Feb 15, 2023


As a driver in Oklahoma, understanding the drivers license points system is crucial. Points are assigned to traffic violations and accumulating too many points can result in the suspension or revocation of your driving privileges. At John P. Bennett, Attorney at Law, we offer legal assistance to help you navigate through any issues related to drivers license points.

How Points are Assigned

Each traffic violation carries a specific number of points that will be added to your driving record if you are found guilty or plead guilty. The number of points depends on the severity of the offense. For example, a minor speeding ticket may result in 2 points, while a DUI conviction can lead to 10 points.

Common Violations and Points

  • Speeding (1-10 mph over the limit) - 2 points
  • Driving without a valid license - 4 points
  • Failing to stop at a stop sign - 2 points
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) - 10 points
  • Reckless driving - 4 points
  • Following too closely - 2 points

Consequences of Accumulating Points

If you accumulate a certain number of points within a specific timeframe, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) may take action against your driving privileges. Here are some key consequences:

License Suspension

If you accumulate 10 or more points within any five-year period, the DPS will suspend your driver's license. The length of the suspension depends on the number of points and previous offenses.

Probationary Period

If you accumulate four or more points within a one-year period, the DPS will place you on probation. During this probationary period, any additional violations will result in an automatic license suspension.


For more serious offenses, such as DUI, your license may be revoked immediately, regardless of the number of points accumulated.

If you are facing a license suspension or revocation due to accumulated points, it is crucial to seek legal representation. John P. Bennett, Attorney at Law, has extensive experience in handling traffic violation cases and can help you build a strong defense.
