The Tennessee Department of Safety told us that each time a violation is posted to a person's driving record, the TN Department of Safety computer will look back for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the posted date of the violation to determine whether the driver has accumulated twelve (12) points within any twelve (12) month period within the past twenty-four (24) to warrant a proposed suspension notice.
So it appears in Tennessee that points are looked back on for 2 years from the posted date of the violation associated with the points.
The TN Department of Safety representative also told us that in Tennessee violations appear on a driving record for three (3) years from the event date. However they also stated that if a person's driver's license status is listed as suspended or revoked at the time a Motor Vehicle record (MVR) is purchased they will report the previous seven (7) years of activity.
