One of the little known facts of the driving world is that you can lose your license if you're a bad driver. Shocking right!? Not really, it’s fairly common sense that if you’re a menace on the road, the DMV might punch your ticket. In California this process is known as a negligent operator suspension, or as DMV practitioner’s and DMV hearing officers commonly refer to it, a “Neg Op” suspension. A Neg Op suspension can occur due to excessive points on your record.
This is interesting. Starting in mid-September of this year, auto manufacturers will be allowed to use California roads for vehicle tests involving self-driving cars. After much deliberation, the DMV has come up with regulations on the testing of these vehicles. It's likely that at some point soon, they'll also issue rules to the general public.
