Changes to the application of demerit points for special circumstances review applications

Published on 16 Mar 2023

The Road Safety (Drivers) Amendment Regulations 2023 will commence operation on 27 March 2023 and make changes to the way demerit points are applied to your driver licence for eligible driving-related offences.

The regulation changes will apply to any special circumstances review application decided on or after the date the regulations start, regardless of when your application was lodged.

If your application for an internal review on the ground of special circumstances is accepted, any demerit points applicable to the offence will be applied to your driver licence.

If your application for enforcement review on the ground of special circumstances is successful, any demerit points you received for an eligible driving-related offence will remain on your licence.
