Demerit Points



$2,000.00 – $10,000.00, plus additional court costs and victim fine surcharges


Upon conviction for Stunt Driving, you will be given a mandatory licence suspension of 1 to 3 years by the court. This suspension begins immediately upon conviction.  Additional costs for reinstating your driver’s license are applicable.

Impact on Insurance Premiums

A conviction for Stunt Driving is serious and could label you as a “high risk driver” by your insurance company. This may mean you could be subject to much higher insurance premiums and your status may affect the type of insurance coverage you are required to carry. Insurance companies also have the right to drop you entirely. A novice or young driver with a Stunt Driving conviction on record could pay thousands of dollars per year for insurance premiums. Before attending court, speak with one of our POINTTS representatives.

Other Penalties

When charged with Stunt Driving, you will receive an automatic 30 day licence suspension in addition to a 14 day vehicle impoundment. Regardless of who owns the vehicle, it will be impounded and you will be responsible to pay impound and towing fees which can range upwards of $700.00 to $1000.00. If convicted of Stunt Driving, in addition to a monetary penalty and a licence suspension, you may also be subject to a court ordered probation term, imprisonment and / or community service. Subsequent convictions for this charge may mean a significant fine and or imprisonment term.

About The Offence

Section 172 (1) of the Highway Traffic Act states:

No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway in a race or contest, while performing a stunt or on a bet or wager.  2007, c. 13, s. 21.  Example: Speeding, 50 km’s over the posted speed limit.

Stunt Driving does not only mean you were racing or driving 50 km’s or more over the posted speed limit.  Driving with a person in the trunk of a motor vehicle or driving a motor vehicle in a manner that indicates an intention to cause some or all of its tires to lose traction with the surface of the highway while turning constitutes stunt driving as well. Your legal representative at POINTTS will carefully review your specific charge and determine the right path for a successful outcome.
