Penalty points


Drivers who gathered to his credit more than 24 penalty points are received license.
Novice drivers (having a driver’s license less than a year) lose after gaining more than 20 penalty points. If the police officer receives information about the status of the account and the driver finds that with the punishment meted out to him by the total score reaches 25 or more (in the case of a young driver 21 or more) is required to receive a license.
To then retrieve received a driver’s license, the driver himself must strive to control exam. This does not require attendance on the course. In contrast, young drivers, who were deprived of driving license after crossing the border 20 points, even lose their license. So they have to go from the beginning of the training cycle. The driver loses license if, in its first year of ownership exceeded 20 points. The driver who exceeds 24 points, will be directed at the control check driver qualification.
Periodically, the account will be removed points on offense, of which one year has elapsed.
Completely you will be able to clean an account only after a year since the last offense, which was in the records (if, of course, before the driver did not exceed the limit of 24 points).
The driver can also independently reduce the status of your account, participating at their own expense in training courses organized by the regional centers of traffic. This possibility only applies to drivers who are under 24 points. During the year, you can participate in training at most twice (once every six months). Thus, the account will be canceled no more than two times six points. Teaching will lay emphasis on increasing awareness of the dangers on the road. They will argue for a cautious ride, show videos and photos of accidents will also explain the cause of the collision and how to avoid them. Drivers who have a license for less than a year, will not be able to benefit from the possibility to cancel points.
