*The above point system is subject to change by the Ohio legislature and applies only to an Ohio driver’s license.  Most states participate in an exchange of information regarding traffic citations.  Your home state will be the ultimate authority of points on your license.

**CDL professional drivers are also subject to federal driving regulations.

There is no such thing as a “no point speed” in Ohio.  The term “no point speed” is an industry slang term referring to when your speeding ticket is successfully negotiated down to a different (but similar) no point offense in Ohio.

Failure to show proof of insurance at the scene of your traffic citation can have extended consequences.  This also includes when an officer did not ask to see your valid insurance card.  The burden of proof for showing valid insurance coverage at the time of citation is on the driver.  If your citation does not indicate that proof of insurance was shown at the citation scene, it is important that you show proof of car insurance coverage (relating to date/time of incident) to the Court.  Ultimately, failure to show proof of such insurance will result in notification to the State and possible license suspension.
