Habitual Offender Certification: An accumulation of certain motor vehicle convictions can lead to certification as a Habitual Offender in the State of New Hampshire. This can result from as few as 3 convictions. It is important to consult an attorney if you have a significant motor vehicle record before deciding how you want to plead in your case. The Habitual Offender system is different from the Points System (see below). Habitual Offender has nothing to do with “points” and should not be confused with that system. It is a much harsher status involving an extended period of license suspension of up to four (4) years.
Points Suspension: The Department of Safety can suspend your license for accumulating “points” for traffic convictions. You are entitled to a hearing before your license is suspended. The hearing is similar to a trial. You should take full advantage of that hearing. We can assist you.
