Out Of State Drivers and Demerit Points

I often get questions from out-of-state clients how tickets will affect their driving record with relation to demerit points with their state’s DMV.  Demerit points are allocated by Virginia DMV, not the judges.  Different speeds merely have different penalties.  A 80 mph in a 60 mph zone, reckless driving, has -6 demerit points, same as a DUI.  Knock one point off to a 79 mph in a 60 mph, then WHAMMO!!!!!  You are looking at -4 demerit points.  How that transfers is really dependant on how your state’s DMV receives such reports.
