Points from Out-of-State Tickets

If you get a ticket in another state, you will receive points on your Florida driving record if the violation is an offense that earns points in Florida.  For example, if you get a speeding ticket for going 14 miles above the speed limit outside Florida, you will earn three points on your Florida record. In terms of points added to your driving record, Florida treats out-of-state citations as if the ticket was received in Florida.  It does not matter how many points the other states would assess against their drivers for the same violation. The point system is a graduated scale of points that assigns relative values to convictions.

Florida drivers are not eligible to attend driving school for out-of-state tickets.
