Aside from penalties imposed by the court, drivers are often concerned about how a Fairfax County reckless driving conviction will affect their driving record. There are several things to keep in mind.
First, reckless driving in Virginia will result in six demerit points on your driving record. These points will remain for eleven years. Driver improvement courses can provide “good” points to help offset the demerits.
Some Virginia drivers are also in danger of receiving a license suspension issued by the DMV after a reckless driving conviction. This is typically based on the number of demerit points they have accumulated or how rapidly they have accumulated them.
