Can someone explain the points system on someones driving record?

I live in Texas and I am not sure if they do this or not in Texas, but I always hear (on here) about people having points added to their record. They very well could do it in Texas, but I have not received a driving ticket in about 14 years, and I never heard anything about it back then. If this question is one... show more I live in Texas and I am not sure if they do this or not in Texas, but I always hear (on here) about people having points added to their record.

If this question is one that is repeated numerous times, I apologize, but I could not find any info on it.

Thanks for any answers.
