UNDERSTANDING DEMERIT POINTS 


Demerit Points for Speeding Tickets:


Save your demerit points by calling Pointsstoppers to fight your ticket. Our licenced paralegals are here to fight your speeding ticket and save your demerit points. 
Traffic Tickets with the associated Demerit Points impact insurance rates. The Ministry of Transportation penalizes drivers who accumulate too many demerit points by removing their driving privileges, and right to drive. 

Demerit points for Probationary drivers – G1/G2 Licence holders 
Speeding tickets can affect your insurance. Any 4 point speeding ticket means a 30 day licence suspension. Probationary drivers are not allowed to accumulate 6 demerit points. Any Suspension would increase insurance 100%. 

Demerit points for Fully licenced drivers 
Speeding tickets can affect your insurance. Upon reaching 9 demerit points the Ministry of Transportation will require the driver to attend for a interview to see why the driver’s licence should not be suspended. At 15 demerit points the driver receives a mandatory 30 day licence suspension. Any suspension would increase insurance 100%

Demerit Points for Class G Licence Holders 
Fully licensed drivers may accumulate fifteen demerit points, but upon reaching nine (9) demerit points the Ministry of Transportation will require an interview to discuss whether the licence should be suspended. 

If a class G driver reaches fifteen (15) demerit points the Ministry of Transportation will suspend the driver’s licence for thirty (30) days, and six (6) months for any subsequent accumulation of demerit points. 
It is a common misconception that drivers “lose” demerit points due to convictions for traffic offences. In fact, a driver begins with zero demerit points and “accumulates points”.
