The procedure to have points taken off a license can vary depending on what state a driver lives in, but generally a person can take a remedial driver’s course to have a few points removed. In the state of Missouri, for example, a driver can submit an email or a letter to the Missouri Department of Motor Vehicles, and anything older than 3 years may be expunged.
When a driver starts driving for the first time, no points are accumulated on the driver’s license. When a driver gets a ticket, depending on the driver’s offense, points will be added onto the license. Removing points can be useful to prevent a driver from a license suspension and to avoid an increase in insurance rates.
