Additional demerit points
In Queensland, additional demerit points apply all year for repeat offenders.
Additional demerit points are allocated for certain second or subsequent driver seatbelt offences, motorbike helmet offences and offences for speeding more than 20 kilometres per hour (km/h) over the speed limit, that are committed within one year after the first offence.
You do not necessarily have to commit the same type of offence a second or subsequent time to be allocated additional demerit points. A second or subsequent offence only needs to be within the same offence group for you to accumulate additional demerit points.
The Additional demerit points fact sheet describes the additional demerit points offences, the number of additional demerit points that have been set for each offence, and provides examples of how additional demerit points are allocated.
