The Virginia DMV uses a point system to rate drivers. You receive demerit points for unsafe driving and safe driving points for good driving.
Demerit points are assigned when you are convicted of a traffic violation. The demerit points associated with a conviction remain valid for two years from the date you commit the offense. Different violations carry different point assignments, depending on the seriousness of the offense.
Drivers who are DMV directed or who have volunteered may receive 5 points upon completion. The maximum number of positive points you can have on your driving record is five. You may take the course for points every 24 months.
