Negligent Operator Treatment System (NOTS)
This is a point based system implemented by the DMV to count the number of operator infractions an individual has garnered. Anytime you are cited with a traffic ticket conviction and/or when a driver is noted as responsible, at fault, or a contributing factor to an accident. All of these can add up and result in disciplinary action against your license, which also includes commercial driver’s license who are at times subject to harsher penalties. Furthermore, points garnered out-of-state are subject to review under your home states point system.
While the amount of points someone garners is subject to the conditions of the offense, the DMV focuses on the amount of points someone has garnered within a certain time frame. This results in three levels of notice that are incurred upon a person’s driving privilege. Check out the State of California’s Department of Motor Vehicles website for a complete list of the applicable points that can be added to your license.
The three levels include:
- Level I – A warning letter for 2 points within 12 months, 3 points within 24 months, or 6 points within 36 months.
- Level II – A notice of intent to suspend for 3 points within 12 months, 5 points within 24 months, or 7 points within 36 months.
- Level III – Suspension/probation for 4 points within 12 months, 6 points within 24 months, or 8 points within 36 months.
