The Unique Driver's License Point System in Oregon

How Many Points Before Your License is Suspended?

Oregon’s DMV uses a unique system to monitor driving records in order to determine if a driver’s license should be suspended or taken away.

Oregon’s system is unlike most other state’s system because points are not assigned to each infraction.

Oregon’s Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is “violation-based.”

  • A driver (adult) who receives three traffic convictions and/or accidents within 18 months cannot drive between midnight and 5 a.m. except for employment purposes.
  • A driver who receives four or more traffic convictions and/or accidents within 24 months will have a license suspended for 30 days.
  • A driver under 18 who has two convictions/accidents will have a license suspension for 90 days.  A driver under 18 who has three convictions/accidents will have a license suspension for six months.
  • Habitual Offender Program. In addition to the DIP, Oregon will revoke the license of a driver who receives three or more “major” convictions (or 20 or more traffic convictions) within five years.
