How Long Does A NY Traffic Ticket Stay On My Driving Record?

In this post, we will discuss how long accidents, traffic ticket convictions, and suspensions and revocations remain on a driver record.

    • A traffic ticket conviction  or an accident  normally remains on a driver record during the year that the conviction or the accident occurred. and for the following three calendar years. (Note: The DMV uses the year when the conviction occurred, not the year when the violation occurred.) The DMV removes  a conviction or an accident from a driver record on January 1 of the fourth year  after the year of the conviction or the accident. For example, an accident or a conviction that occurred during 2009 remains on the driver record until January 1, 2013.
  • A conviction that is alcohol-related  or is for driving while impaired by drugs  (for example, DWI or DWAI) remains on a driver record for exactly 10 years. If a driver is convicted of the same violation during that 10 years, the driver can receive additional penalties.
  • There are other convictions and accidents of

    a serious type  that can remain on a driver record for more than 10 years .

  • A suspension  or a revocation  of a driver license that was not cleared remains on a driver record indefinitely .
  • If the suspension is for a drug-related offense arising out of Penal Law section 220 or 221, the suspension remains on a driver record for four years from the date the suspension is terminated .
  • A suspension  or a revocation  that was cleared or terminated  remains on a driver record for four years from the date the suspension or revocation was terminated. (Note:  The DMV uses the year when the suspension or the revocation was cleared or terminated. not the year when the suspension or the revocation began.)

Note:  Employers and organizations frequently ask for a driver abstract that shows all the activity for the previous 10 or more years. The DMV cannot provide a driver abstract that shows information that is different from the information that is described above.

If you need a copy of your driving record, you can get it from DMV or we can obtain it for a small fee.
