G2 Drivers & Speeding

G2 drivers found guilty of speeding more than 29km/h receive a 30 day licence suspension and insurance increases.

Neither the police nor the courts are required to tell G2 drivers of the hidden penalties for speeding tickets.

Penalties Per Speed Recorded

Any speeding ticket for more than 29km/h has a licence suspension for G2 Drivers.

Licence Suspensions

Any ticket with four (4) demerit points has a thirty (30) day licence suspension for G2 Drivers.

Where a G2 Driver accumulates six (6) demerit points the driver loses their licence for thirty (30) days.

Where the driver loses their licence for an accumulation of demerit points and then subsequently goes over the demerit point limit a second time, the suspension shall be for ninety (90) days.

Any ticketĀ for more than fifteen (15) kilometres over the limit has demerit points.

Insurance and Speeding

Speeding tickets and licence suspension affect your insurance rates.

Where a G2 Driver receives any speeding ticket and a conviction is registered the ticket will affect the insurance rates.

Where the driver receives a speeding ticket for more than 29km/h and is suspended, the insurance will increase to high risk insurance rates.

The conviction will put two “strikes” against the driver in that:

The police nor the courts advise G1 drivers that convictions over 29km/h have a licence suspension.

Upon conviction the Ministry of Transport will send a letter to the registered address advising the Novice driver to surrender their drivers licence at a Service Ontario location.
