How do I get points removed from my driving record?

  • If an operator accumulates 12 or more points, their driving privilege will be suspended for 7 days for every point over 11.  Once the points have been reduced to 11, one point will be reduced for every three-month period during which no points are recorded against the operator’s driving record.
  • Operators may elect to attend an approved defensive driving course which will reduce three points from their driving record.  This three-point reduction can only be used once every 12-month period.  Proof of course completion must be mailed to the NDDOT’s Drivers License Division.
  • Operators issued a citation with a penalty of five points or less may elect to attend an approved defensive driving course in lieu of entry of points on the operator’s driving record.  The operator must notify the court at the time they post their bond and provide proof of course completion to DOT within 30 days.
