DMV Demerit Points in NH

Nothing escapes the DMV!

Upon conviction for certain (most) motor vehicle offenses the DMV will assess Demerit Points. The accumulation of Demerit Points can, and often does, lead to a DMV imposed License Loss. Points are calculated based on the violation date and not the conviction date for the purpose of the Calendar Year.

  • 18 Points in Three Calendar Years = Up to One Year Suspension

DRIVERS UNDER THE AGE OF 21
