Colorado DMV Points System

If charged with a DUI, you may be facing DMV penalties in addition to criminal charges.

Designed to keep dangerous drivers off the road, each traffic offense carries points that will be assessed against your driver’s license.

In Colorado, every person starts with 0 points on their license. Depending on the severity of the offense, just one traffic offense could result in a suspension of your driving privileges.
If you accrue too many points in a certain period of time, your driver’s license will be suspended.

Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)

If you are designated An HTO, your driver’s license will be revoked for five years, with no driving privileges, from the date of the charge.

You may have received a letter in the mail from the Colorado DMV or a ticket handed to you by a police officer letting you know you are being charged with an HTO.

It’s important that you contact an attorney to help you before you enter any plea regarding this offense, because dealing with the DMV and the court can be complex, and you might be unaware that you are actually eligible to reinstate your driving privileges.
