How Many Points Does Texting and Driving Add to My License?

Have you recently been cited for a texting while driving? If you were stopped for this violation, you may be worried about the number of DMV points being added to your license. The more points that you receive for various offenses, the closer you are to having your license suspended or even revoked.

You Won’t Get Points But There Will Be Consequences
The dangers that are associated with texting and driving have been well documented.

As a result, many states, including North Carolina, consider it to be a form of distracted driving. This means that there are penalties involved for being caught in the act.

No driver’s license or insurance points will be given to you as a result of being stopped while texting or e-mailing while driving. But this doesn’t mean that you are free and clear.

A violation is punishable by a fine of one hundred dollars ($100.00) and the costs of court.
