Point Categories for Speeding Tickets in Georgia
Like many other states, Georgia uses a point system to categorize speeding tickets. The category of the speeding ticket determines how many points are assigned to an individual’s driving record. Points on your license can result in higher insurance premiums. If you amass too many points, your driver’s license could be suspended.
Georgia’s categories for points on a license for speeding tickets include:
- 1 point – Texting while driving
- 2 points – For speeding tickets about 14 mph but less than 19 mph over the speed limit
- 3 points – For speeds of 19 to 23 mph over the speed limit
- 4 points – For speeding tickets of 24 to 33 mph over the speed limit
- 6 points – For going 34 mph or more above the speed limit
If you accrue 15 points or more in a 24-month period, your driver’s license will be suspended. Keep in mind that other traffic violations can also result in points on your license. The state will notify you if your driver’s license is suspended.
In addition to the typical penalties for speeding, Georgia has a Super Speeder law. This law defines super speeding as driving at speeds above 75 mph on a two-lane road or above 85 mph on any road or highway. The penalties for super speeding are in addition to other fines and fees. The Super Speeder fee is $200 on top of the amount on the ticket. If you don’t pay within 120 days, your license will be suspended and you will have to pay an additional reinstatement fee.
