Any speeding ticket for more than fifteen (15) kilometers per hour has demerit points attached to it.
The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario allows you to accumulate demerit points from speeding tickets, but depending upon the class of drivers licence the ministry may;
- Immediately suspend the drivers licence
- Send a warning letter regarding the demerit point accumulation
- Send the driver notice to appear for a demerit point interview
Driver licence suspensions for Speeding Tickets
Upon reaching six (6) demerit points G1 or G2 drivers will be suspended for thirty (30) days.
The police, traffic courts nor the Ministry of Transportation are required to give notice to the driver of the threat of suspension.
Subsequent traffic ticket convictions will result in a further six (6) month licence suspension.
All speeding tickets for more than 50km/h have a possible thirty (30) day to two (2) year licence suspension.
The Ministry of Transportation charges a fee of one hundred and eighty (180) dollars to reinstate suspended driver licences.
Any licence suspension will dramatically affect insurance rates.
