Hello all! My company transferred me out here so my boyfriend picked up his life and came with me. He had an incredible job oppportunity working in car sales but ended up not being hirable for having too many points on his colorado driving license (2 speeding tickets and 1 failure to stop) as they could not insure him. Someone told him when he gets his NV license the slate will be wiped clean since they were minor traffic offenses. We've done some research online and called the nevada and colorado DMVs but cannot get a straight answer. Does anyone know the answer to this? I hate to see him get his hopes up for nothing

I'd say no, slate will not be wiped clean. I had a speeding ticket in Ohio, and a "accident" in California - no damages but alas still in the records as an accident. I was insured with Geico, lived in CA.
So, at first I got great NV/Vegas rates with State Farm and went with them instead. Then a month later they dropped me because the accident and speeding had registered with them - even though I told them in advance when getting my rate.
Apparently CA has some obscure rules on making this info available when insured there... so I had to pick up insurance at double rate, and then it will drop 3 yrs after the date of my incidents.

The sum is, though, that you're not going to get old sins forgotten with a new license. Or at least, I did not. It is possible that other insurance companies look at things differently though. It seems the issue for your bf is insurance so stop calling DMV, call the insurance companies instead.

this is a odd situation... when i first received my nv license, i applied to be a cab driver (never took the position that was offered).. they required a 3yr bmv check (i already had the nv license).. the bmv showed up clean.. However when obtaining car insurance, my Ohio tickets were there.. so in my opinion.. his tickets are going to show up....

All 50 states reciprocate on this. They might be slow to do it, but eventually whatever points you have will show up.
