If your vehicle has been detected speeding by a speed camera, you will receive an infringement notice asking you to either pay a fine in 28 days, attend court or nominate a driver. If the vehicle is registered under two people, the person whose name appears first will receive the notice as the operator of the vehicle. Fines and other demerit points for speeding detected by cameras are the same as getting a speeding ticket.

Double demerit points apply if you commit the speeding offence more than once in a year. Double demerit points also apply if you commit more than one seat-belt offence within 12 months.

Applying for a Special Hardship Order (SHO)

If your licence is suspended for 6 months due to speeding offence, you may apply for a Special Hardship Order. To receive a Special Hardship Licence, you must prove that losing your licence may result in severe hardship or financial problems for you and your family. If you are granted a special hardship licence, you may drive under specified circumstances; an example would be driving to work or hospital.

To be granted a Special Hardship Order, you will be required to submit affidavits and present them in the court. Please contact us for assistance with your Special Hardship Order application.
