Demerit Points – Ontario Demerit Point System

Ontario Demerit Point System

Save your demerit points by calling OTT Legal. Our licensed paralegals and former police officers are here to help, offer advice, and save your demerit points.

Traffic tickets and the associated demerit points have a direct impact on insurance rates.

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation penalizes drivers who accumulate too many demerit points by removing their driving privileges and suspending their driver’s licence.

Call OTT Legal now at 1-888-668-8946 to save your demerit points and keep your insurance low.

Demerit Points – G1 or G2 Probationary Drivers

Probationary driver are suspended for;

  • Any four (4) point traffic ticket for thirty (30) days.
  • Accumulating six demerit points.

Any licence suspension will dramatically affect insurance rates for probationary drivers.

More information about G1 drivers and traffic tickets >

Demerit Points for Class G Licence Holders

Fully licensed drivers may accumulate fifteen demerit points, but upon reaching nine (9) demerit points the Ministry of Transportation will require an interview to discuss whether the licence should be suspended.

If a class G driver reaches fifteen (15) demerit points the Ministry of Transportation will suspend the driver’s licence for thirty (30) days, and six (6) months for any subsequent accumulation of demerit points.

It is a common misconception that drivers “lose” demerit points due to convictions for traffic offences. In fact, a driver begins with zero demerit points and “accumulates points”.
