just wondering if anyone can enlighten me on how the demerit points for P plates in NSW operate.
In January of this year I was involved in an accident where I lost 2 points from my Red P's, leaving me with 2 points left on them.
In May of this year I was fined for having no P plates displayed, which also loses you 2 points. However, the cop who fined me told me to get my Green P's before I paid the fines, that way I can still drive.
But - seeing as I have lost 4 points while on my Red P's, does that mean that I now have a 'clean slate' with 6 points on my Greens, seeing as both offences were while i was on my Reds? Or, do the demerit points stay on there for a period of time after the offence as well, and if so, how long?
Basically, I either have 6 as I have not done anything wrong on my Green P's, or I have 2 because ive lost 4 already this year.
So which one is it?!
