Reckless Driving Points in South Carolina

One reckless driving charge is six points against your driver’s license. A total of 12 points will cause your license to be automatically suspended.

Penalties for Reckless Driving Conviction

One reckless driving charge will cause a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to be suspended, and a second offense will cause a regular license to be suspended. Additionally, you will face up to 30 days in jail on any reckless driving charge.

However, the charges against you can be reduced or the case could be dismissed entirely without sufficient evidence to show that you were driving with “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property,” according to the state statute.

At Drennan Law Firm, our attorneys regularly defend people who have been charged with reckless driving in the Charleston area and successfully minimize the consequences of charges. You should never plead guilty before speaking with an experienced South Carolina criminal defense lawyer.
