Quebec Traffic Violation Attorney
Seasoned Legal Assistance for Canadian Drivers
When found guilty of a traffic offense, Quebec drivers are subject to a demerit point system. As points accumulate within a two-year period, you will be subject to certain penalties based on the number of points, the type of license you hold, and your age. Penalties include fines, demerit points, and an increase in your auto insurance premiums. Fight your ticket with the help of an experienced New York traffic violation lawyer at Robert Sinesi Law Firm. We have been in the business of defending Canadian drivers for the past 25 years. We know what to do and how to get results that can save your driving record and the financial fallout of a traffic offense.
Information about Quebec Traffic Violations
The demerit system in Quebec falls into brackets based on age and type of license.
You will be subject to penalties in the following manner:
- After accumulating 4 points if you have a learner’s or probationary license
- After accumulating 8 points for licensed drivers under 23
- After accumulating 12 points for licensed drivers aged 23 or 24
- After accumulating 15 points for licensed drivers aged 25 and above
Once you accumulate the threshold number of points for your bracket, your license will be revoked. This revocation will last a minimum of 3 months and may last as long as 12 months depending on the circumstances. You may be eligible to seek a restricted license if you demonstrate that driving is essential to your job.
Examples of demerit points in Quebec include:
- Speeding 11 to 20 km/h – 1 point
- Speeding 21 to 30 km/h – 2 points
- Speeding 31 to 39 km/h – 3 points
- Tailgating – 2 points
- Running a red light or stop sign – 3 points
- Failing to yield – 2 points
- Reckless driving – 4 points
