If you are given a ticket by a police officer there are often demerit points put against your record.
If you accrue over 100 demerit points within 2 years your licence will be suspended.
Land transport is supposed to notify you when you are getting close to 100 points but that doesn't always happen.
In many cases people are pulled over for a new offence and told that they must surrender their licence immediately as they were already over 100 points.
If you are suspended you are able to apply for a work licence immediately. However, given that it make take some time to put your paperwork together it is best to organize matters in advance.
If you commit an offence the demerit points will only be entered when you pay the fine or the the fine is sent to courts (after 56 days).
As such - if you wish to apply for a work licence it is best to contact me as early as possible - then we can manage the time that the demerits are entered and your suspension starts. E.g. if you were traveling overseas for a period of time it would be preferable for the suspension to be running then.
Even after you have paid the fine it is possible to manage the timing of the suspension so a court date can be organized and papers filed.
If you have over 100 demerit points and the suspension is imminent feel free to call to discuss your options.
