New York Driver Assessment
Our New York traffic ticket attorneys advocate for the reduction of points placed on our client's driving record in order to avoid the New York Driver Assessment (also known as a DRA). The New York Driver Assessment is a fine imposed when six points or more are earned on the driving record. Call our lawyers now at 800-893-9645 for a consultation.
|Six points or more on record||$300 one time payment;|
or $100 each year for 3 years
|Any additional points earned over six points||$25 for each point for 3 years|
|Refusing to take a breathalyzer test, conviction for alcohol related traffic offense or conviction for drug related traffic offense||$250 each year for 3 years|
A driver's license will be suspended if they fail to pay the New York Driver Assessment. This fine also applies to out of state drivers. Driver safety courses will not reduce these fines.
Our Westchester County attorneys represent clients for traffic violations in many local towns such as New Rochelle, Mount Vernon, Yonkers and Tuckahoe, in order to reduce the overall charge and sentence, which will help prevent an increase in their insurance premiums or cancellation of their policy.
Traffic violations and points are included on a driver's record for at least 39 months.
When an insurance company views a driver abstract that has accumulated points they may impose a surcharge. Points may remain on a driving record for up to 4 years.
