Drivers rewarded for 12-month spotless driving record

If you have been a good driver for a year — as in you have a 12-month spotless driving record — you could be rewarded by having a demerit point removed from your licence.

Data broken down by local government area shows 43,465 drivers in eight LGAs have seen a demerit point removed from their licence for maintaining a 12-month spotless driving record.

In Richmond Valley 2147 drivers had a demerit point removed from their licence.

In Kyogle it was 693, in Clarence, 7810, Lismore City, 4855 and in Tenterfield Shire it was 538.

The demerit return trial has been extended for a second year as the State Government continues to sharpen its focus on road safety in 2024.

State MP Janelle Saffin said earning the removal of a demerit point can mean a lot, especially to motorists who rely on their cars to drive the kids to school or to get to work.
