You Will Be Listed as a Negligent Operator If…

Do You Know When You Will Be Listed as a Negligent Operator?

You will be listed as a negligent operator if you receive too many points on your DMV record. The good news is that if you’re listed as a negligent operator and are facing a DMV suspension of your driver’s license, you are entitled to a DMV hearing to contest the suspension of your license. Attorney Paul J. Denni can help you keep your license if the DMV is trying to name you as a negligent operator.

Negligent Operator DMV Hearings

DMV hearings can be intimidating. If you’re classified as a negligent operator, DMV hearings can result in a 6 month suspension of your driving privilege. These DMV hearings are only held if you’ve received 4 points in one year, 6 points in two years, or 8 points in three years.

Examples of moving violations that result in points on your DMV record (and consequently, result in negligent operator DMV hearings), include:

DUI convictions (2 points);
14601.1 suspended license convictions (2 points);
–speeding tickets, running stop signs, and crossing over a double yellow line (each of these are worth 1 point, unless you were driving over 100 mph).

A competent negligent operator attorney can help you keep points off of your DMV record (before a conviction has occurred), and can also represent you in your negligent operator hearing once you’ve received the traffic convictions and are facing the suspension of your driver’s license.
