Accumulation of Points on Your Driving Record
If you accumulate a total of 4 points in 12 months, the Missouri Department of Revenue will send you a point accumulation advisory letter. This letter essentially serves as a warning to notify you that you are approaching the limit for the maximum points allowed on your driving record before you are suspended.
If you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, your driving privilege will be suspended. Below are the consequences for accumulating 8 points in 18 months:
- 1st suspension — 30 days
- 2nd suspension — 60 days
- 3rd (or subsequent) suspension — 90 days
Your driving privilege will be revoked for one year if you accumulate:
- 12 or more points in 12 months
- 18 or more points in 24 months
- 24 or more points in 36 months
Penalties for Driving While Suspended/Revoked
A conviction of driving while suspended/revoked may be a misdemeanor offense or a felony offense, depending on the specific circumstances. A first offense of driving while suspended/revoked is classified as a Class A misdemeanor in Missouri. Missouri Class A misdemeanors can result in a term of imprisonment for up to one year, and a fine of up to $1,000.00. Drivers who have had prior convictions of driving while suspended/revoked or other alcohol-related offenses may be facing a felony charge.
