I received a traffic citation in the city of Atlanta (Failure to Obey Traffic Control Device) in November 2016. My court date (and conviction) was not until the following April. I received 3 points on my license for this ticket. I know that points stay on your license for 2 years, my question is is it 2 years from the date I was ticketed or 2 years from the date of conviction since there was a 4 1/2 month gap between the two dates?
Points are assessed on conviction, but a suspension for points accumulation is for getting 15 or more points in a 24 month period based on the dates of the offenses (citations).
There are a number of ways to reduce points or to plea without getting any points. You should hire an attorney if you want to check out these options.
24 month time period that counts convictions that result in points during that time. Have to accumulate 15 points in that time to get a suspension. There are many ways to avoid points and/or getting points reduced on your record.
