  • Question for the Demerit Point Gurus

    Copped a 3 pointer in Melbourne back in Oct last year, ran a red light while in a hire car apparently. Copped the fine and the 3 demerits.

    Just checked the WA site for demerits against my license and it reads zip, zero, zilch, nada...

    Am I a lucky SoB or....??

    not relevant but more FYI as I seen posted otherwise in another thread, but mate was pinged by a pork with a handheld and demerit points expire at anniversary of offence not payment, this was confirmed by DPI site

      You accumulated 3 points in Victoria. So if you get 12 over there you cannot drive in Victoria until the points clear. At least that's how it used to be.

        I have no direct experience but you may wish to research this:

        "The National Driver Licensing Scheme (NDLS), which has been adopted by all Australian jurisdictions, provides that details of certain driving offences committed by a driver while visiting in another State are to be transferred to that driver's home jurisdiction for recording on their traffic record.

        The NDLS also provides that the driver’s home jurisdiction is to apply the number of demerit points it would have applied, had the offence been committed in the driver’s own jurisdiction.

        The relevant driving offences are those listed in the Administrative Guideline for the NDLS published by the National Transport Commission (www.ntc.gov.au)."

            NEVER heard of the points actually following someone back, but they'll chase you for the bucks.

              they sure did that. I waited until the red one arrived (next step: we'll see you in court) before I paid tho. I thunk what rabbit said was the go... anyway it's now 7 mths later so not much chance of the points turning up now I guess

                Over the past ten years approximately half of my traffic 'offences' have appeared on my record. Be nice to the cops, pay your fine, and happy motoring.
