Get Your Demerit Points Defence

Get Legal Action.

Traffic tickets earn you points that are known as Demerit Points. These points are permitted to accumulate before action becomes necessary. For example, after 6 points the Ministry of Transportation will be forced to tell you about your driving record in the form of a warning letter. 9 demerit points will force you to attend an interview in order for you to explain why the ministry should not suspend your license. After 9 points you may also be required to go through road, vision, and knowledge tests in order to determine your ability to drive competently and safely.

Failure in any test will mean a suspension of license. The same thing will happen if you do not attend the interview. 15 demerit points will automatically get you a license suspension for 30 days. If you do not surrender your license, you face a 2-year suspension. Legal Action's Speeding Tickets department dealing exclusively in handling unfair speeding tickets can be of some real assistance should you be in such a fix. We will work hard towards a complete elimination of all your traffic tickets.
