In the above video, Georgia Attorney Ty Wilson discusses Georgia speeding tickets and the effect on your driving record.

And we get this question all the time, I’ve been cited for speeding, and I’m curious, how many points do I receive for speeding in Georgia. As with everything else in the law, it will be fact specific. This one turns on how fast you’re going.

Georgia law has parameters built in for speeding. Georgia also have the super speeder law (read more about that here). Here is a chart laying out the points and how the violations work on speeding.

  • 15 mph or less over the speed limit – 0 points
  • 15 – 18 mph over speed limit – 2 points
  • 19 – 23 mph over the speed limit – 3 points
  • 24 – 33 mph over the speed limit – 4 points
  • 34 mph and more – 6 points

Effect of the Points

The points are important because if you’re licensed in Georgia, there is a 24-month time period, so If you get 15 points within 24 months, your license will be suspended. That means you want to do everything you can to try to prevent that from happening, especially if you need to drive for work or school.

How to Remove the points

Unless you know the law and the specific court system where you received the speeding ticket, it will be difficult to remove or reduce points. As I stated above, there is a super speeder law and if you fall under that violation, additional fees are also added to you license once you pay your speeding ticket.

The best solution is to have your ticket reviewed by a licensed, experienced lawyer that practices in Georgia. A lawyer can also do a case review.
