If you have been driving for some time, chances are you may have accumulated points on your driver’s license. These points can result from traffic violations such as speeding tickets or accidents. In Nevada, points can stay on your record for up to 12 months, leading to increased insurance premiums or even suspension of your license.
Thankfully, there are ways to remove points from your license in Nevada. This guide will provide information on how to do so and the necessary steps to take.
Why should I remove points from my license?
Points on your driver’s license can have negative consequences, including increased insurance premiums or even suspension of your license. In addition, having a clean driving record can give you peace of mind and make you a safer and more responsible driver.
How do I check the points on my license?
Before you can start removing points from your license, you must know how many points you currently have. You can check your driving record online through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website in Nevada. You must provide your driver’s and social security numbers to access this information.
How can I remove points from my license?
There are two ways to remove points from your license in Nevada: attending a traffic school or filing for a point reduction hearing.
Attending a traffic school can be an effective way to remove points from your license. In Nevada, you can attend a DMV-approved traffic school online or in person. Completion of the course will result in a 3-point reduction on your license. However, this option is only available once every 12 months and can only remove up to 3 points.

Point Reduction Hearing
If you have more than 3 points on your license or have already attended a traffic school in the past 12 months, you can file for a point reduction hearing. This involves submitting a request with the DMV and attending a hearing where you can present evidence, such as completing a driver improvement course, to reduce the points on your license.
How long does it take for points to be removed from my license?
Points will only be removed from your license once you have completed either a traffic school or point reduction hearing. The DMV will then update your driving record within ten days. It is important to note that points will not be removed immediately after completion, so it is best to plan ahead if you need a clean driving record for a specific reason.
