Moving violations in California are violations of the California Vehicle Code which result in a “point” going on your DMV record. The DMV uses a point system to keep track of your driving record so they can determine how safe you are as a driver.

The theory is that the more moving violations you’ve been convicted of in traffic court, the less safe of a driver you are.

Also, California insurers gain access to your DMV record and use any points on your DMV record in their underwriting process to raise your car insurance premiums.
