Don't Have to Take Off From Work?

We will go to court for you so you don't have to miss work and lose a days worth of pay.  We elevate the stress and anxiety of having to face a judge and/or stand in front of the officer that issued you the summons.   

NYS Driver Point System

The DMV assigns points for certain traffic violations.

If you get 11 points in an 18-month period, your driver license may be suspended. The point system is not the only way to lose your license.

Point Calculation:

  • you must be convicted of the traffic violation before points are added to your driving record
  • your point total is calculated based on the date of the violation, not the date of the conviction
  • the points for violations that all occurred within the last 18 months are added to calculate your point total.
