Difference classes of drivers licences have suspensions at different point accumulations.
- G1 or G2 licence holder – Any one ticket with four (4) or more demerit points
- G1 or G2 licence holder – Any accumulation of six (6) or more demerit points
- G licence holder – Any accumulation of nine (9) or more demerit points results in a demerit point interview and possible suspension
- G licence holder – Any accumulation of fifteen (15) or demerit points
Many driver licence suspensions for demerit points can be avoided by fighting the ticket.
When traffic tickets are fought if the ticket cannot be dismissed completely, normally the demerit points can be reduced thereby avoiding many drivers licence suspensions.
Any drivers licence suspension for demerit points will dramatically affect insurance rates for drivers.
