    Watch what happens to your credit card if you do it in a hire car!

    ..
    yeah they came to my old place a few times, while i wasn't there. have not seen them since i moved back to the hills. prob have the same idea most city people do "O Mundaring thats ages away, but i'll go to joondalup no worries" i think that up hill transition from concrete to trees can worry some flat landers

    Other than that, thankyou for an informative post And thank christ I don't live in Vic.
    And sorry to cause you to lose some sleep pnork and you are right but I am happy to gain my points back when I go the 3 years and not so happy when I lose them
    This is the wording the Vic police gave: "The permitted demerit point limit is a total of 12 or more demerit points within any 3 yr period... If you incur demerit points above the permitted limit you will be disqualified from driving in Victoria..." Then they give you a list of infringements and points deducted. I figure I have a maximum of 12 points and deduct points from that so I know how many I have left. Technically incorrect but I can handle that .
    OK, tried inserting a smiley face here but will need to get a bit familiar with it... first try

    Another tip for the interstate fines (from an Officer I met out the back of Bullamakanka). Pay at the nearest post office after the fine and don't let it go to reminder phase. Points are reciprocal but unless there is an automatic mechanism as per Wahoo's post, they wont manually notify the other state of the accrued points. Unless you don't pay the fine...

    Fines are instant and you will get your fine sent to your license address unless you get it by hand.
    Each State has a different arrangement between themselves regarding points.
    With Victoria they don't get added to your WA demerit points, but they are counted separately and you don't get notified about points until you only have a few left. You then get a letter saying that Victoria has 12 points and how many you have lost. If you lose 12 points in Victoria on a WA license, you get disqualified from driving in Victoria and from getting a Victorian driver licence/learner permit for a set period.
    Fines are different so be happy with what you have in WA.

    Speeding in a different State

    Just found out how States work out the speeding points.
    Fines are instant and you will get your fine sent to your license address unless you get it by hand.
    Each State has a different arrangement between themselves regarding points.
    With Victoria they don't get added to your WA demerit points, but they are counted separately and you don't get notified about points until you only have a few left. You then get a letter saying that Victoria has 12 points and how many you have lost. If you lose 12 points in Victoria on a WA license, you get disqualified from driving in Victoria and from getting a Victorian driver licence/learner permit for a set period.
    Fines are different so be happy with what you have in WA.

    WA:
    <9km/hr = $100 - zero points
    9-19km = $200 - 2 points
    19-29km = $400 - 3 points
    29-40km = $800 - 6 points

    Vic:
    <10km/hr = $201 - 1 point
    10-24km/hr = $322 - 3 points
    25-29km/hr = $443 + 3 months suspension
    30-34km/hr = $524 + 3 months suspension

    Queensland:
    <13km/hr = $177 - 1 point
    13-20km/hr = $266 - 3 points
    20-30km/hr = $444 - 4 points
    30-40km/hr = $622 - 6 points
