Colorado Auto Driving Laws

Colorado Point System

As a driver, you start out with a clean record, no points against you.

Under Colorado traffic laws, if you accumulate too many points against your driving record within a certain period of time, you will lose your driver license through a point suspension.

Each time you are convicted of a Colorado driving law violation, the court notifies the Motor Vehicle Division.

A conviction for a violation of Colorado traffic laws occurs when you plead guilty, pay the ticket, or accept a plea bargain. Each type of conviction causes a certain number of points to be placed on your traffic record. Points assessed against your record are not erased when you get a new license or get reinstated.

Under Colorado driving law, the number of point accumulations for suspension are:

Minor Driver

  • 6 points in any 12 consecutive months.
  • 7 or more points for the period of the license.

Provisional Driver

  • 9 points in any 12 consecutive months.
  • 12 points in any 24 consecutive months.
  • 14 points in the period of the license.

Adult Driver

  • 12 points in any 12 consecutive months.
  • 18 points in any 24 consecutive months.

Chauffeur Points

  • 16 points in any 12 consecutive months.
  • 24 points in any 24 consecutive months.
  • 28 points in any 48 consecutive months.

Under Colorado driving law, all chauffeur violations must have been received in a motor vehicle in use as a public or common carrier of persons or property.

Under Colorado Driving Law, Your Driving Privilege May Be Suspended, Revoked or Canceled if You...

  • Meet or exceed the minimum point accumulation for suspension.
  • Are convicted of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Refuse to be tested for alcohol or drug content.
  • Are convicted of failing to report an accident or leaving the scene of an accident without stopping, exchanging information, and rendering aid.

  • Lend your license to someone else or misuse it in any way.
  • Alter or deface your license.
  • Fail to appear for a re-examination requested by the Motor Vehicle Division.
  • Are convicted of manslaughter as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
  • Fail to pay a fine for a Colorado driving law traffic violation or a traffic violation from any other state.

  • Are convicted of defacing public or private property.

According to Colorado driving law, if you are convicted of driving while under restraint, your driving privilege will be suspended again effective for ONE YEAR from the date you would have been reinstated.
