Hello,

The feedback received thus far has been helpful and I am wondering about when demerits are applied, and how with the graduated licensing system.

Given that it can be months between a charge being laid and a conviction, or a plea deal being agreed upon, are demerits applied only after conviction? Does it matter if a driver was charged while holding a G2 when charges were laid, and then achieved a G before the matter was settled in court? Will the demerits be applied to the G and treated as any other G driver?

4 points on a G1 and G2 lead to a suspension, and with a G they do not...so it can matter a great deal when plea bargaining and weighing options.

When a driver does a road test for the G does the examiner know about pending charges? Do pending charges exclude a driver from doing the test?

Thank you.

Demerit points last 2 years and are calculated from the day you were charged, NOT the day of your potential conviction. They are not on your abstract till a conviction, but will remain 2 years from the day you initially received your ticket. If it takes 6 months for a conviction, you will only see your demerit points for a year and a half.

Anyone who has a valid license on the day of their driving test is eligible to complete their road examinations, whether there's a pending trial or not.

Thank you. With the novice driver escalating sanctions program, will the G driver's license be suspended for 30 days then? The way the G2 would have been.

Also am I understanding it properly that with the program, after the suspension is served, there are no demerits attached to the license? Would this also hold true if a G was obtained before conviction?
