How do you get a surcharge on your license? Never heard of this before... Or at least I don't think I have.

WOW! I had no idea. So, if you don't have the money for insurance, you get a ticket, have to buy insurance and pay a extra $360 a year to the state as a "surecharge"? Wow, nothing like sticking it up your when you are lying on the floor face down...

Is this only for insurance? I know there is one for DWI also but I also know it's WAY more then $360...

(no, I don't pay a DWI surecharge...)

Points surcharge
DPS will assess a surcharge when the driver accumulates a total of six points or more on their record during a three-year period. The surcharge assessment will be reviewed annually. If driver record continues to reflect six or more points during the prior three-year period, the surcharge will be assessed. Therefore, drivers may be required to pay for one or more years if six or more points continue to accumulate on the driver record. The driver is required to pay a $100 surcharge for the first six points and $25 for each additional point. Point surcharges are cumulative and may vary with each annual assessment if convictions are added or removed from the driver record.



Annual surcharge for certain convictions
Drivers who receive a conviction for any of the following offenses that occur on or after September 1, 2003 are required to pay an annual surcharge for three years from the date of conviction.

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), or a DWI-related offense
First Conviction - $1,000 annual surcharge

Second or subsequent Conviction - $1,500 annual surcharge

DWI with Blood Alcohol Content .16 or greater - $2,000 annual surcharge
Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility
$250 annual surcharge
Driving While License Invalid
$250 annual surcharge
Driving without a Valid License (i.e.; No Driver License, No Commercial Driver License, No Endorsement Violation, No Motorcycle License, Operate with License for other Class Vehicle).
$100 annual surcharge

I didn't exactly let mine drop, but my ex made sure it didn't et paid (bouht crack instead), and then I had a very minor accident. My ins had lapsed 11 days- it was just after I had moved from SA, and I had no idea. I went riht away and ot my ins reinstated, but that minor accident cost me a fortune because of it.

There were other checks that never made their destinations, either. It wasn't hard to fiure out where they went, unfortunately...

Baby doll, you don't count. Cops....pretty little girls.....almost always tend to get along unless that pretty little girl has been drinking. Women will often be given a pass for offenses that would land men in jail and/or ticketed heavily
