Trans 101.02(7)(a)(a) Any person who holds an instruction permit or probationary license on the date of a conviction, or an unlicensed person who would be issued a probationary license or instruction permit if proper application were made and all other requirements for license were met, shall be assessed double the demerit point value shown for convictions set forth in subs. (1) to (4) if the record indicates that the person has been previously convicted of an offense for which demerit points were assessed under s. 343.32, Stats. This paragraph does not apply to a conviction for violation of any offense under ch. 347, Stats.
Trans 101.02 Note Note: Commercial driver licenses are never issued on a probationary basis. S. 343.085 (2) (b), Stats. Chapter 347, Stats., deals with vehicle equipment requirements. DMV is required to double demerit points for most offenses and is prohibited from increasing points assessed to a driver for a vehicle equipment violation by s. 343.32 (2) (bc), Stats.
Trans 101.02(7)(b) (b) Any person whose operating privilege has been revoked or canceled while unlicensed or while licensed under a probationary license shall be issued a reinstated probationary license for the same period as an original probationary license.
Trans 101.02(8) (8)General rules for point cases. In determining whether a person appears by the records of the department to be a habitually reckless or negligent operator of a motor vehicle or to have repeatedly violated any of the state traffic laws and whether suspension of operating privileges pursuant to s. 343.32 (2), Stats., for the accumulation of demerit points is appropriate, the department shall conform to the following rules, which are set forth in their order of priority, and subject to the exceptions set forth in sub. (9), for purposes of initially determining whether to suspend a driver's operating privilege:
Trans 101.02(8)(a) (a) Violations used once. Demerit points may be used in only one point case, except as provided in pars. (c), (e) and (f), and sub. (9) (c).
Trans 101.02(8)(b) (b) Revocations always imposed. Revocations shall be imposed by the department whenever ordered by a court or required by statute without regard to potential demerit point ramifications.
Trans 101.02(8)(c) (c) Use of conviction resulting in withdrawal action in point case. Demerit points from an offense that resulted in suspension or revocation of a person's operating privilege under s. 343.30 or 343.31, Stats., may not be used in a point case, except as provided in this paragraph or par. (e) or (f). Convictions that result only in disqualification under s. 343.315, Stats., or federal law may be used in a point case. Convictions that result in suspension of a person's operating privilege due to failure to pay the underlying fine or forfeiture resulting from the conviction or that result in revocation of the person's operating privilege as a habitual traffic offender under ch. 351, Stats., may be used in a point case.
Trans 101.02(8)(d) (d) Amendment of point case based on new conviction. After the department has issued a demerit point suspension order, the department may amend the suspension order upon receipt of reports of conviction for additional offenses that qualify for use in a point case under pars. (a) to (c). The point case may be amended only if the suspension period did not expire prior to the date of conviction for the new offense. The amendment shall incorporate each violation that occurred within one year of all violations that formed the basis of the original suspension order and that remain part of the case. In the event 2 or more violations occurred within one year of all other point case violations, but not within one year of each other, only the violations occurring within one year of the latest violation that was used in the existing point case shall be used as the basis for the amendment.
Trans 101.02(8)(e) (e) Court-ordered suspensions. If the department receives notice of conviction and a court-ordered suspension under s. 343.30, Stats., and the person is subject to a demerit point suspension, the department shall act as follows:
Trans 101.02(8)(e)1. 1. If the person is not subject to an existing point case and the person's operating privilege would be suspended for a longer period under a point case that includes the conviction as one of the bases for the case, DMV shall suspend the person's operating privilege for that longer period in accordance with s. Trans 101.04 (3) or (3m) and need not note the court-ordered suspension on a public abstract of the person's driver record nor send notice to the driver of the court-ordered suspension.
Trans 101.02(8)(e)2. 2. If the person is not subject to an existing point case and the person would be subject to a suspension under s. Trans 101.04 (3) or (3m) that is equal to, or less than, the court order, then DMV shall suspend the driver's operating privilege in accordance with the court order, notify the driver of the court-ordered suspension, and show the suspension on a public abstract of the driver record. Demerit points from that conviction may not be used in a point case in accordance with par. (c).
Trans 101.02(8)(e)3. 3. If the person is subject to an existing point case and the date of the new conviction is on or before the date of the latest conviction used in the existing point case, DMV shall make the same evaluations described in subds. 1. and 2. and determine whether the court-ordered suspension or the demerit point suspension would have been imposed had the conviction report been made to DOT prior to the suspension order for the existing point case, amend the existing point case in accordance with subd. 1. or notify the driver of the court-ordered suspension in accordance with subd. 2 as required. If the court-ordered suspension is imposed, no change will be made to the existing point case.
Trans 101.02(8)(e)4. 4. If the person is subject to an existing point case and the date of the new conviction is later than the date of the latest conviction used in the point case, DMV shall impose the court-ordered suspension and may not amend the point case to include the new conviction.
Trans 101.02(8)(f) (f) Serious traffic offenses committed by occupational license holders. Serious traffic offenses, as enumerated in s. 343.31 (2u), Stats., committed by a person who holds an occupational license may be used in a points case regardless of any suspension of the person's occupational license resulting from the conviction.
Trans 101.02 Note Note: A person whose occupational license is canceled will be shown in a suspended or revoked status as though no occupational license had been issued.
Trans 101.02(9) (9)Rules for point cases involving changed convictions.
Trans 101.02(9)(a)(a) Scope. This subsection addresses the effect of a conviction change on a point case.
Trans 101.02(9)(b) (b) Definition. For purposes of this subsection, a "conviction change" means a conviction that was reported to the department on a previous occasion is reopened, vacated, appealed or amended.
Trans 101.02(9)(c) (c) Amended charges and errors. Upon receipt of a report that a conviction or revocation or suspension order noted on a driver record has been changed or was reported to the department in error, the department shall note the change or correct the error on the driver record and recalculate any point suspension using the points assessed against the driver record under subs. (1) to (6), except as provided in pars. (d) to (f). If, upon recalculation, the department determines that the release or amendment of the point case is appropriate, the department shall release or amend the point case. The department shall provide notice to the person of any amendment in the form of an amended demerit point suspension order.
Trans 101.02(9)(d) (d) Convictions considered unused if point case is released. If a point case is released because of a conviction change or notice that a conviction or revocation or suspension order was reported in error before the suspension period for the point case is complete, all convictions that formed the basis for the released point case shall be considered not to have been used in a point case for purposes of sub. (8) (a). Otherwise, the convictions shall be considered to have been used in a point case.
Trans 101.02(9)(e) (e) Released withdrawal due to amended charge. If a court reopens a conviction and amends the charge for which the person was convicted, and as a result of that amendment a suspension or revocation order issued under s. 343.30 or 343.31, Stats., is released, demerit points for that conviction may be used in a point case unless the suspension or revocation initially imposed under s. 343.30 or 343.31, Stats., has already been served in its entirety or at least 2 months of the suspension or revocation has been served.
Trans 101.02(9)(f) (f) Released withdrawal without amended charge. If a court amends a suspension or revocation order, but does not vacate or amend the conviction itself, and the person's operating privilege has been suspended or revoked for the entire period that was earlier ordered by the court or was suspended for 2 months or longer as a result of that earlier order, demerit points resulting from the conviction may not be used in a point case. Otherwise, the demerit points from the conviction may be used in a point case in the same manner as for a newly reported conviction and no credit for time served shall be granted for time served under the earlier court-ordered suspension or revocation when determining the length of the point suspension.
Trans 101.02(9)(g) (g) Released demerit point case violations reused. In any case where a changed conviction or notice that a conviction was reported to the department in error results in the department releasing a point case and the affected driver accumulates sufficient demerit points to warrant suspension for accumulation of demerit points from a combination of offenses that were part of the released point case and other convictions, the department shall suspend the driver's operating privilege for accumulation of demerit points. In such a case, the department shall reduce the length of time to be suspended on the second point case by the amount of time served on the released point case if one-half or more of the convictions used in the released point case are used in the second point case. If fewer than one-half of the convictions used in the released point case are used in the second point case, the length of suspension shall be determined according to s. Trans 101.04 (3) or (3m) without regard to the released point case.
Trans 101.02 Note Note: This "credit for time served" applies only between demerit point cases. Time served for other suspensions or revocations may not be credited to a demerit point case. The Department counts the number of convictions, not points attributable to them, in deciding whether to grant this credit.

Trans 101.03 Trans 101.03 Warnings. The department may notify any operator of the points charged against the person's driver record when the record shows the person has accumulated 6 or more points in a 12-month period.
Trans 101.03 Note Note: Under Graduated Driver Licensing, few drivers receive warning letters before being suspended for demerit points. This is because ch. 343, Stats., has reinstated point doubling. A probationary driver with any prior violation on his or her record who is convicted of a 6-point violation will be assessed 12 points for that offense and be immediately suspended. Similarly, a driver who accumulates two 4-point offenses will be summarily suspended without warning. The first 4-point ticket will not trigger a warning under this rule. The second 4-point ticket will result in an 8-point assessment after doubling, resulting in a total of 12 demerit points and a suspension.

Trans 101.06(2) (2) The department shall suspend for 2 months the operating privilege of any person convicted of violating s. 343.16 (7) (b), Stats.
Trans 101.06 Note Note: Section 343.16 (7) (b), Stats., involves persons taking DMV examinations on behalf of others.

Trans 101.07 Trans 101.07 Reduction of point value for attendance at driver improvement counseling, traffic safety school or defensive driving courses.
Trans 101.07(1) (1)Three demerit point reduction for completion of qualified class. In accordance with the authority in s. 343.32 (5), Stats., and the requirements of this section, the points assessed to a person's driver record shall be reduced by 3 points or by the number of points accumulated up to 3, upon application for a demerit point reduction and satisfactory completion of any of the following:
Trans 101.07(1)(a) (a) A department-approved course of instruction at a traffic safety school.
Trans 101.07(1)(b) (b) A department-approved course of instruction in defensive driving or similar course.
Trans 101.07(1)(c) (c) Driver improvement counseling conducted under the program authorized by s. 110.08, Stats.
Trans 101.07(1)(d) (d) A motorcycle rider course offered under s. Trans 129.03 provided that the person has not had a prior point reduction resulting from attending a motorcycle rider course.
Trans 101.07 Note Note: See ch. Trans 106 concerning authorization, approval and administration of traffic safety schools and defensive driving courses.
Trans 101.07(2) (2)Certification of course completion. The instructor or counselor who conducts a course or counseling program under sub. (1) (a) to (d) shall file a certification of course completion with the department. A separate certification shall be provided to the department for each individual in the course. The certification shall be on the form prescribed by the department and must be made within 30 days of satisfactory completion of the course in order to qualify for point reduction. A copy of the completed certification form shall be furnished to the student, another copy sent to the court or assessment agency, if either assigned the student to the school, and one copy shall be retained by the school. The department may approve the use of a reproduction of this form, at the request of a school, including computerized versions. The certification shall be considered proof of course completion and may include an indication of whether the student is requesting a demerit point reduction under this section.
Trans 101.07(3) (3)One reduction maximum in any 3-year period. Each person may seek only one point reduction under this section in a 3-year period. A point reduction shall be considered to have been sought under this subsection once the department has posted the course completion to the person's driver record, regardless of whether the driver's demerit point total is actually reduced. When appropriate, the department will apply the point reduction in a manner that permits the department to release a point suspension already in effect, prevents a suspension that would otherwise be imposed under this chapter from taking effect, or reduces points that may have accumulated on the person's driver record prior to the date of course completion due to violations that occurred before the date of course completion.
Trans 101.07 Note Note: For example, if a driver who is suspended with 13 points completes a course, the driver's point reduction shall be applied to reduce his point total to 10 points and the case will be released. (Potentially making the driver eligible for reinstatement if he/she is otherwise eligible for licensing). Similarly, a driver who has accumulated 10 points and attends traffic safety school would receive the 3-point reduction to seven points. If he then received a 4-point assessment for a violation, his point total will be 11 points and he will not be subject to suspension. If a driver has 2 or fewer demerit points on his record before attending driver school and accumulates an additional 12 demerit points after course completion, the Department will apply the demerit point reduction only to reduce the 2-point total the driver had before attending the school. [See subs. (1) (intro.) and (5)] Thus, upon using the reduction, this driver's demerit point total would be 12 points and the driver would be subject to a demerit point suspension.
Trans 101.07(5) (5)Driver records with fewer than three assessed demerit points. In those instances where the person successfully completes an approved course and is otherwise entitled to point reduction and the person's record has less than 3 points, the person's record will be reduced by the number of points on the record. No credit will be applied toward future point assessments nor shall the opportunity be given to have the point total reduced again within a 3-year period.
Trans 101.07(6) (6)Notice regarding point reduction. The department may notify individuals of the opportunity for point reduction under this section.
Trans 101.07(7) (7)Credit applies as of the date of course completion. Any demerit point credit granted under this section shall be applied as of the date the instructor certifies the student successfully completed the course.
Trans 101.07(8) (8)Point case release resulting from point reduction. The department shall release a point case suspension of a driver who was suspended for demerit points if application of a point reduction under this section results in the total assessed demerit points on the person's driver record being less than 12 demerit points.
Trans 101.07(9) (9)Reduction applies only to point assessments based on prior violations. Demerit point reductions under this section shall apply only to demerit points assessed as a result of convictions for violations that occurred on or before the date of course completion. Demerit point reductions under this section resulting from attending a motorcycle rider course shall apply only to demerit points from convictions for offenses which were committed by the driver while operating a class "M" vehicle on or before the date of the course completion. Demerit points for violations occurring after the date of course completion shall be added to any current demerit point value and may not be reduced by a credit granted under this section as a result of attending that course.
Trans 101.07 Note Note: A person who commits violations after course completion may be able to retake the course or take a different course for point reduction, provided the person does not seek more than one reduction in a 3-year period.
Trans 101.07(10) (10)Fees. A person seeking the point reduction under this section shall be responsible for any and all fees charged for any course the person attends.
