  • Conviction of reckless driving, conviction of driving with a suspended, denied, revoked, or barred license, conviction of hit and run, or conviction of leaving the scene; or
  • License suspension, or license denial, or license revocation, or license bar; or

For purposes of reviewing driver records for eligibility or corrective action, moving violations shall not include violations for:

  • Failure to use safety belts;
  • Parking violations;
  • Past convictions, suspensions, or revocations related to civil or criminal actions unrelated to driving or vehicle operation; or
  • Speeding violations of 10 miles per hour or less over the legal speed limit only in speed zones where the legal speed limit is between 34 miles per hour and 56 miles per hour.
