The way my husband just explained it to me was this, if you have 6 points against you already, and in the next month, you get another 6, to total 12, then you will have your license taken I believe for 90 days, and you have to have sr22 insurance to get it back.
Here is where we get into the earning your points back, from our understanding, if you  keep your record clean, you can earn points back after 1 to 3 years depending on the severity of the ticket. Don't rely on this, but rather call the dmv to find out for sure, or talk to an insurance agent. Hope this helps, good luck.

In my experience, I thought it is only on your driving record for only 3 years. I don't know if it is different from state to state but I know where we live, I know speeding is 3 years and a friend of mine got a first time dwi, and it was on his insurance for 3 years.

I have always been under the impression that it was 7 years... In the sense that if someone looks at your driving record, a 7 year history is maintained... But as Tiger said... You need to verify...  I'm sure the info must be available online somewhere.
