Alaska Auto Driving Laws

Alaska traffic laws aim squarely at accident prevention through identification, control and rehabilitation of recognized problem drivers.

It works this way:

  1. A numeric point value from two to ten points is assigned for each conviction of a moving traffic violation.
  2. Those Alaska driving law violations contributing to greater accident potential carry higher point values.
  3. Upon the acquisition of a determined number of points, the violator will be notified and warned to take a hard look at his driving habits.
  4. Additional point accumulations may require a personal interview with a Driver Improvement Specialist. Drivers appearing for the interview may be required to comply with certain recommendations designed to improve their driving abilities.
  5. Credits may be earned for violation-free driving, and/or completion of a driver improvement course.
  6. Under Alaska traffic laws, the accumulation of 12 points in 12 months or 18 points in 24 months requires the mandatory suspension or revocation of the driving privilege, regardless of the hardships involved.
  7. A provisional license holder who accumulates 6 or more points in a 12-month period or 9 or more points in a 24-month period must complete a driver improvement course approved by the department.
  8. No limited license is available should suspension or revocation of the driving privilege be required.

If you are convicted of, or forfeit bail, for a moving traffic violation occurring in this, or another jurisdiction, points will be assessed on your Alaska driving record in accordance with the Alaska driving law license point accumulation and is based on the following schedule.
