Negligent Operator – Prevent DMV Suspension

Negligent Operator – Prevent DMV Suspension

If you received a letter from the DMV stating you are a “negligent operator”, you face a DMV suspension of your driver’s license for up to 6 months. Loss of your driver’s license is one of the biggest restraints on your freedom, and as such, you have a right to contest a negligent operator DMV suspension. You can get help with your Negligent Operator DMV suspension from Attorney Paul J. Denni.

What Makes You a “Negligent Operator”?

The DMV considers you a negligent operator if you have received too many points on your DMV record within a given period of time. If you are a non-commercial driver, you will be classified as a negligent operator if you have received 4 points on your DMV record in one year, 6 points in two years, or 8 points in three years. (If you are a commercial driver, you are allowed 2 additional points, but each moving violation received counts for 1 1/2 times the normal point count.)

How Do I Get Points on My DMV Record?

You can receive points on your DMV and eventually be classified as a negligent operator record due to the conviction of a moving violation offense. Several common traffic tickets (speeding, illegal stop, crossing over a double yellow line, etc.) are moving violations and will result in a point on your DMV record. There are other more serious offenses which result in two points on your record, such as driving on a suspended license under VC 14601.1, or a DUI under VC 23152.
