One of the penalties for a speeding ticket in Georgia is that you will be ordered to pay fines. The fines may range from $140 to $330, depending on the severity of your offense.

Another penalty is that points will be added to your driver’s license. The more points on your license, the greater the consequences. For example, after you have accumulated 15 points within 24 months, the Georgia Department of Driver Services may suspend your driver’s license, even if some of the violations occurred out of state.

For drivers under the age of 21, your license may be suspended if you accumulate 4 or more points within 12 months.

Points for Individual Driving Offenses

Speed Over the Legal Limit


15 mph but less than 19 mph

2 points

19 mph but less than 24 mph

3 points

24 mph but less than 34 mph

4 points

34 mph or higher

6 points

Tickets for speeds less than 14 mph over the speed limit will not result in points on your driver’s license, but may affect you if you have a Commercial Driver’s License. In addition to the loss of your driver’s license, your automobile insurance premiums will also skyrocket if you get enough points on your license.
