Does New York State honor out of state driver's license points?

For the most part, the answer is "No". New York State does not assign points from out of state convictions or from other countries with the exception of  Ontario and Quebec. I copied the relevant section from the official NYS DMV website and linked the full article below.

Out-of-state convictions: 

If you are convicted of a traffic violation in another state or country, points are not added to your New York State driving record, unless the violation occurred in Ontario or Quebec.

New York State has a reciprocal agreement with Quebec and Ontario. Traffic violation convictions that occur in these provinces are recorded on your New York State driver record, and the convictions have the same effect and carry the same points as convictions that occur in New York State. This can affect your driver violation point total and Driver Responsibility Assessment.
