Nevada’s Demerit System for Driving Records
In Nevada, for every conviction involving a traffic ticket, a driver will have a certain number of demerit points assessed to his or her driving record. The amount of demerit points depends on the severity of the traffic violation.
Common traffic offenses and their corresponding demerit points include:
- Reckless driving – 8 points
- Careless driving – 6 points
- Failure to disclose information or provide aid at the scene of an accident – 6 points
- Failure to yield right-of-way – 4 points
- Following too closely – 4 points
- Handheld cellphone use or texting (2nd offense) – 4 points
- Passing a school bus with signals flashing – 4 points
- Failure to stop at a traffic signal or stop sign – 4 points
- Impeding traffic or driving too slowly – 2 points
- Failure to dim headlights - 2 points
The amount of demerit points assessed for speeding is determined by how many miles per hour (mph) over the speed limit the driver was going. For 1 to 10 mph over the speed limit, 1 point will be assessed. Each additional increment of 10 mph takes on an extra demerit point. Drivers who are exceeding the speed limit by 41 mph or more will be given 5 demerit points. If an individual is driving too fast for the conditions, he or she will receive two demerit points.
The potential to lose a license increases as the demerit points accumulate. Those who receive 12 or more demerit points during any 12-month period will have their license revoked for 6 months. After 12 months, the points will be deducted from your total, but the traffic offense will remain on your record, which often results in higher insurance rates.
