Can My License be suspended for Excessive Speeding in Arizona?
Yes. If you accumulate enough points against your driver’s license, Arizona will suspend your driver’s license. Drivers who accumulate 8 points in any 12-month period face a 3 month license suspension.
MVD will add three (3) points to your driving record points for an excessive speeding ticket. Thus, you face a license suspension if you already have 5 or more points. The more points you have, the longer the license suspension you face.
