First Six Points

When a Bucks County driver’s record reaches 6 or more points for the first time, that driver will receive a written notice from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) requiring them to take a special written point exam covering:

  • Safe Driving Practices
  • Departmental Sanctions
  • Related Safety Issue

The Bucks County driver will have 30 days to successfully pass the exam or their driver’s license will be suspended until which time the exam is passed. If the Bucks County driver passes the exam within the 30-day period, 2 points will be removed from his or her driving record.

If you have received a Bucks County traffic violation that carries points, Caterina Saile, Esq., an experienced local Bucks County traffic violation lawyer, can defend your rights.

There are specific rules governing the use of these means to determine if someone is speeding.
