DMV Point System
Each time a driver is convicted of a moving traffic law violation, the court notifies the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV in turn notifies the University if the driver is included on the University's Employer Pull Notice (EPN) Program list.
When a traffic conviction shows a person operated a motor vehicle unsafely on a highway, it counts as one point.
An accident is normally counted as one point.
Two points are charged for convictions of:
- Reckless driving.
- Driving under the influence of liquor or any drug.
- Hitting an unattended vehicle without notifying the owner.
- Causing property damage, injury, or death by hit and run driving.
- Manslaughter (involving a vehicle).
- Causing injury or death with a vehicle while evading a peace officer.
- Driving on the wrong side of a divided highway.
- Speed contest or exhibition of speed.
- Illegal transport of explosives.
The DMV may consider an individual with the following point totals a negligent driver:
