How long does a non-moving violation stay on your license? I already know a moving violation is 3 to 4 years.


State laws differ whether non-moving violations even go on your driving record. If they are put on your motor vehicle record (MVR) then typically the non-moving violations will stay on it for the same amount of time as a moving violation. For example Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (HSMV) notes that non-moving violations generally do not result in points on your license but will usually appear on your record since they are adjudicated.

In Texas moving violations appear on a Type 2 driver record for a period of 3 years only. All moving and non-moving violations appear on a Type 3 driver record for a period of 15 years with the exception of serious offenses.

Nevada DMV notes that cases which are dismissed or reduced to non-moving violations are not reported.

In Ohio non-moving violations, such as not renewing your registration on time, may result in a ticket and a fine, but will not result in points being assessed against you, and will not show up on your OH MVR.

To find out if your state places non-moving violations on your driving record contact your state's Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV can also tell you how long a non-moving violation would stay on your record once placed on there.
