Impact on Insurance Premiums

Distracted Driving is a serious offence and will remain on your drivers abstract for 3 years. Your insurance provider – whether under residential, commercial or fleet insurance – may have strict stipulations and serious consequences upon conviction.

Other Penalties

A novice driver who is convicted of Distracted Driving will receive an automatic 30 day licence suspension for a first occurrence and a whopping 90 day licence suspension for a second. If convicted a third time, a Novice Driver will have their licence cancelled and be removed from the Graduated Licensing system.

Losing your licence may cause problems for your employment or family commitments.  If driving is a requirement for your work or personal life, you should carefully review your options with your POINTTS™ representative before you decide what action to take.
