Demerit points are gained, not lost
In Peninsula News edition 469 there was an article entitled "Woman loses 28 points in one incident".
While it is a common misconception, the facts are that you do not lose points for penalty infringement, but are awarded demerit points.
Thirteen points and you are gone.
If you haven't committed any offences, you have zero demerit points.
If you commit an offence that carries demerit points, the points are added to your driving record.
