The province is streamlining its notification process on demerit points. Drivers will no longer receive a warning letter when four demerit points are earned through amendments that will be introduced today, Nov. 22, to the Motor Vehicle Act. “We’re interested in safety, not red tape,” said Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister Ramona Jennex. “This change will save time and money, and still provides drivers with numerous options to access their information.” Drivers can check the drivers’ handbook to see how many points are assigned to an infraction. They can also contact Access Nova Scotia to obtain information on points accumulation. Fully licensed drivers who accumulate six demerit points will continue to receive a letter from the deputy registrar indicating that they will be required to undergo a re-examination with a Driver Enhancement Officer. The proposed legislation only applies to fully licensed drivers.
