Traffic violations

  • Those who violate traffic rules are fined and collect penalty points in their driving record.
  • The penalty points are 1 - 4 depending on the nature of the violation. If 12 penalty points are collected within three years or less, the driver loses his driver's licence for three months.
  • Beginners with temporary licences are banned from driving after receiving four penalty points. Such ban applies until the offender has attended a special seminar and has passed the driver's test again. Beginners licences are revoked after 7 penalty points and must attend courses and take the driver's test again when the term of revocation ends.
  • In serious traffic violations, such as drink driving and speeding, the driver is not only fined, but also loses his driver's licence.
  • In the case of considerable or repeated drink driving, speeding or driving without a licence, the vehicle may be confiscated.
