Driver Points

If a citation for speeding ends up on your driving record, it counts as 2 points if you did not cause an accident and 3 points if your excessive speed did lead to an accident. Just having 2 driver points may not seem like a big deal, but Texas has a surcharge system that can quickly become expensive. For example, if you get 6 points against your license in a 3 year period, the Texas Department of Public Safety will require that you pay a $100 surcharge annually to keep your license active. If you keep getting violations, the surcharge amount will increase by $25.00 for each point you have against your license.  Surcharges continue each year until enough points fall off to bring you down below 6 points again.
