Arkansas Auto Driving Laws

Keeping Your Arkansas Driver License

In order to keep your driver license, you must drive safely at all times. Under Arkansas driving law, you can lose your license for:

- Being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

- Refusing a request by a law enforcement officer to be tested for alcohol or drugs.

- Leaving the scene of an accident in which you are involved without identifying yourself.

- Failing to notify the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) of a reportable accident in which you are involved.

- Giving false information when you apply for a driver license.

- Failing to show proof of financial responsibility or failing to settle a financial judgment made against you for damages resulting from a motor vehicle accident.

- Attempting to change the information on your license or using another person's license when attempting to purchase an alcoholic beverage.

- Failing to appear for re-examination when requested to do so by the Office of Driver Services.

- Using a motor vehicle to commit a felony or causing the death of someone in a motor vehicle accident.

- Accumulating excessive points against your driving record.

- Allowing another person to use your driver license.

Under Arkansas driving law, failure to disclose any information about a previous driver license or presenting any false information or altered documents can result in loss of future driving privileges and/or arrest for fraudulent application.

Under Arkansas driving law, how many points do I have to have on my driving record before my license is suspended?

In accordance with Arkansas Traffic Laws, the Arkansas Administrative Point System is used to identify problem drivers. Under Arkansas driving law, points are assigned for various traffic violations ranging from:

- failure to obey a traffic signal (3 points)

- reckless driving (8 points)

- speeding 0-10 (3 points)

A computer program searches all the driver records weekly and identifies the records which have fallen within a preset range for various sanctions. For example:

- 10-13 points - a warning letter is issued telling the driver to be careful.

- 14 or more points - a notice is sent to the licensee advising them of a proposed suspension action and advising them that they may have a hearing to discuss the proposed action.

- Persons with 14 to 17 points may be suspended for three months.

- Persons with 18 to 23 points may be suspended for six months.

- Persons with 24 or more points may be suspended for one year.

In accordance with Arkansas driving law, if the driver requests a hearing they are subject to the Hearing Officer's discretion, which ranges from no action, probation, restriction or suspension.

If no hearing is requested, then under Arkansas driving law the suspension period noted in the notice goes into effect.
