if we kena demerit point like 12 during our p-plate or 24 after our p-plate... then immediately license revoke?? if so...

 

does the 12 mth rule still apply?? meaning like if i 0 points liao... then suspend for a period of time(1 year)...? or once points finish liao means have to take license again... no need to wait.

 

anyone here can clarify?? confused...

yes to your 1st part...

 

if you get more than 12 demerit points during your P-plate days or more than 24 points after that...revoked...

 

not too sure whether you have to take the test again though....

 

no experience in that! :cheeky:

I have a class 3, 2A and 2B. I beat a red light cam and now I am curious about how many points I''m left for the 3 licences. 2A is still less than a year after passing.

 

is it:

 

a) class 3 left 12 points, class 2A and 2B left 1 point each or

 

b) class 3 , 2A and 2B all left with 1 point

 

c) Class 3 left 24 points, 2A left 1 point and 2B left 12 points.

 

The reason why I am confused is because the theory book says DIPs combines all classes of licenses. But then again, I have heard of people losing their 2A but still keeping their class 2B

UNHAPPY with shell?

Take your money elsewhere then. I did.

Hi,

 

Based on my understanding ah,

 

if ur class 3 is more than one yr without any pts,it is as follows.

 

Class 3- left 12 pts

Class 2b- left 12 pts

Class 2a- left 0 pts.

 

And just to advise u ah.... be very careful. even if u commit any other offences while driving(not riding), ur class 2a will be revoked.....ur 2b and class 3 will be safe.

 

i learnt this from ssdc instructor last wk as i went for 2a lesson.... hope u understand it....:goodluck:

from what i understand...your points is valid for all classes...be it 2B, 2A, 2, 3,4 or 5...

 

24 points means 24 points for all classes of licenses...

 

it doesnt mean that if you have class 2,3,4 & 5...you will have 24 X 4 = 76 points...

 

if you kena a 12 point penalty, you are left with 0 points for all classes of your licenses(because you pass your 2A less than 12 months).

 

my friend once had his class 2 suspended, but kept his class 3,4 & 5 licenses...

 

he was caught speeding 40kmh above the speed limit..& was brought to court...

 

the judge was lenient with him i guess...

Will really appreciate if anyone can help.

 

Was riding about 120km/hr on a 60km/h stretch of road. Still within 12 months of getting my Class 2A.

 

My license likely to be revoke as I only have 12 pts while the demerits is 24.

 

Question is if they'll revoke all my licenses (Class 2B and Class 3)?? Or just Class 2A?

 

What do I need to do at court?

 

Thanx guys.

Hi, I wld like to ask if let's say I got a number of demerit points within 1 yr of my class 2B.. So i go and take my 2A and class 3 aft 1 yr of my Class 2B probation.. Can I ask if the number of demerit points I got during my class 2B probation will be brought over to my Class 2A and 3 probation points?

 

Summary: For example,

 

Jan 2006 - Got class 2B licence

 

Jun 2006 - 6 demerit points

 

Jan 2007 - Probation over, left 18 pts

 

Mar 2007 - Got Class 2A and Class 3 licence

 

Hence, wat will be the final points of my class 2A and class 3 licence, will it be 12 pts or 6 pts?

 

Thanks..
