Where Can I Check how Many Points Are on My License?

For any driver in Ohio, whether you are actively facing a traffic citation, or you just want to keep up-to-date on the points you may have on your license, knowing how to look up the points on your license can be important.

It’s important to keep track of any points you have accrued on your license to help ensure that you do not face a license suspension from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).

Below, we answer the question of how to checkpoints on your license for free to help you keep up-to-date on your driver’s license standing.

How Do I Look Up My Points?

In Ohio, the Ohio BMV is the organization that holds onto all driving records – including the number of points that may be on your driver’s license at any given time. There are a few different ways to look up your points, according to the BMV’s website.

To request a copy of a driving record abstract, which is a 3 year record of “all moving violation convictions, accident involvement reports and other actions that result in license suspensions, revocations or other disqualifications” on your most recent driver’s license issue date, you can do one of the following:

  1. View or request your driving record online
  2. View or request your driving record at a deputy registrar license agency
  3. Mail in a completed record request (Form BMV 1173) and a fee to the Ohio BMV in Columbus, Ohio

To read more about how to request a copy of your driving record abstract, see the Ohio BMV’s page.

How to Check Points on License for Free

There is a free option available to drivers to request their driving record, including points on their license, from the Ohio BMV.

You can request an unofficial copy of your driving record that will date back only 2 years. This can be viewed or requested online. The Ohio BMV site shares that the driving record “is consistent with the Ohio point assessment and suspension law.”

How Can I Check My Driving Record in Ohio?

Ohio drivers can easily access their driving records online through the Ohio BMV website.

Drivers can do a number of different things through the BMV website including viewing their driver abstract which shows important information like any kind of accident reports, moving violations, and any kind of suspension that may be placed on your license.

How Many Points do I Have in Ohio?

Viewing either the 2 or 3 year driving record available on the BMV site will show you how many points you have – particularly in relation to any current traffic citations, you may be dealing with.

And while the 2 or 3-year driving record can be especially helpful to you in addressing the most recent driving concerns you may have; you can put in the above-mentioned record request to receive a copy of your entire driving record.

This can give you a more comprehensive overview of your entire driving history.

If you have concerns about the number of points on your driver’s license, consult with a traffic violation attorney from Maher Law Firm. They will be able to go over the details of your case and help figure out what approach to take in regard to your individual case’s needs.
