Penalty Point System

The penalty point system aims at deterring drivers from driving badly or dangerously. If you are found violating a road traffic law or driving badly, penalty points will be recorded against you.

The accumulation of just a few penalty points can results in imprisonment, a large fine and prohibition from driving for a minimum of 12 months. In some cases your vehicle could also be confiscated.

Courts are obliged to endorse penalty point on a licence, depending on the nature of the offence.

Your licence will be revoked if your penalty points reach 6 or more as results of offences you have committed during your first two years of driving. You will then have to re-take your theory and practical tests, and re-apply for your provisional licence.
