Licence demerit points

If you commit a traffic offence anywhere in Australia, demerit points may be allocated and recorded on your traffic history. Your traffic history is a record of all of your road rules related offences, as well as any drink-driving, drug-driving, dangerous driving or vehicle registration offences you have committed.

Demerit points apply from the date you commit an offence and are recorded once you have either paid the fine or been dealt with by a court.

The demerit points schedule describes selected demerit points offences, the value of the fine, and the number of demerit points that have been set for each offence.

Important: A late night driving restriction may apply if your licence is suspended or you choose a good driving behaviour period.

See release of information to find out how to obtain your licence history or traffic history.
