A: It depends on whether you have any other "points" on your driving records. For drivers under the age of 18, 6 points on your license in a year will result in a three month suspension of your license.

Based on the state regulations ( it appears that speeding of less than 25 MPH over the limit results in three points on your license. Therefore, if that's your only recent violation, you shouldn't lose it now. One more violation, however, and you could lose your license.
