Like all states, Virginia law includes a system to track the driving history of Virginia motorists. In Virginia, the system is managed by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, and it is a relatively complicated point system which allows Virginia drivers to earn safe driving points from the Virginia DMV, and which requires the Virginia DMV to assess demerit points for certain infractions.
