PennDOT maintains a driving record for every licensed driver in Pennsylvania. Points are added to a PennDOT driving record when a driver is found guilty of certain driving (moving) violations.
The purpose of the PennDOT point system is to help to improve driving habits and to ensure safe driving. PennDOT begins to take corrective action when a driving record reaches 6 or more points.
