The Driver's License Point System in Oklahoma

How Many Points Before Your License is Suspended?

Oklahoma's Department of Public Safety uses the Mandatory Point System as a means of monitoring Oklahoma drivers. Under that system each point serves as a demerit, and if accumulate 10 or more points in five years, you will have your license suspended. Although these infractions are reported to your insurer, the accrued points may not have much significance because, when deciding on rate increases, most insurers apply their own point system.

Getting Rid of Points

Two points are deducted for each 12-month period in which there are no convictions (for violations resulting in points). Points are reduced to zero if there are no traffic violation convictions for three consecutive years.

Two points are deducted for successful completion of a DPS-approved Driver Compliance or Defensive Driving Course. Credit for completing the course can be given once every 24 months. The point total can’t go below zero.
