Georgia speeding tickets are categorized in a points system. A speeding ticket in a particular category does not necessarily mean that your insurance premiums will increase. However, even a ticket in the lowest speeding category under Georgia law can cause your insurance premiums to increase.
  • Georgia speeding ticket of more than 14 mph but less than 19 mph will result in 2 points upon a Georgia drivers license
  • Georgia speeding ticket of 19 mph or more but less than 24 mph will result in 3 points upon a Georgia drivers license
  • Georgia speeding ticket of 24 mph or more but less than 34 mph will result in 4 points upon a Georgia drivers license
  • Georgia speeding ticket of 34 mph or more will result in 6 points upon a Georgia drivers license
If you are over the age of 21 and have a Georgia drivers license, a single speeding ticket will not result in a suspension of your drivers license, unless a judge orders that your license is suspended upon a conviction. The Georgia Department of Driver Services is the government agency that regulates Georgia drivers. The Georgia Department of Driver Services suspends the driver’s license of any person who has accumulated 15 or more points in any consecutive 24 month period as measured from the dates of previous arrests for which convictions were obtained to the date of the most current arrest for which a conviction is obtained. Under Georgia law, a Georgia speeding ticket is not the only offense for which points are assessed against a driver’s license. There are numerous other offenses which can contribute towards the point count on a driver’s license.
