In California, is a point always issued for an at fault car accident?

Asked over 3 years ago - Los Alamitos, CA

I am hearing conflicting information, because according to the DMV, a point is always issued, but I hear from other sources that a ticket has to be issued for a point to show up. I was involved in an at fault accident, and the accident shows on MVR, but no point issued. What's the deal?
